The idea of looping classrooms is on the rise. Here’s why. Also called continuous learning, multiyear placement, or family-style learning, looping-in which the same teacher remains with a group of students for two or more years — is a concept as old as the one-room schoolhouse. And yet, its proponents say the practice has a solid place in the 21st-century classroom because looping has been known to strengthen student-teacher bonds, improve test scores, expand time for instruction, increase parent participation, and reduce behavioral problems and placements in special education programs.
