Instructions

Part 1:

1. Students have completed their creation of MSDLAs and are ready to implement them in their classroom.

2. Create time in your weekly schedule to enact your centers with your students and notice student reaction to participating in a class using centers. 

3. If there isn't time this week to do the full MSDLAs, work to enact one or two of the centers you created so you can see the results with your own students. 

4. Reflect on this experience and the positives about using MSDLAs.

Part 2:
