Not sure what the purpose of rotating the rotors is supposed to be, but if you meant to 'turn the rotors', that means to have the rotor faces machined or ground smooth and flat.

If you mean 'rotate the rotors' like you would rotate tires, it's easy enough to do and I can't think of much harm (or benefit) to doing it. Are you sure someone isn't just pranking you? Just take off the front wheels, unbolt the calipers (two 18mm bolts each side), then remove and support them. *DO NOT let them hang by the brake line, rest them on a block or hang them from a wire*slip off the rotors and put them back on the opposite wheel. Reinstall the calipers and wheels. *You may need to use a 4" C-clamp to squeeze the caliper(s) enough to slide them back onto the rotors* Your rotors are now rotated, and coincidentally spinning in the reverse direction when you're moving.
