Personalized Learning and Teaching

Building Personalized Learning at the Classroom and Teacher Level



Teaching is about meeting students where they are and making sure they understand where they are going and how to get there!  Standards and assessments can be daunting, personalized learning allows teachers to take back teaching through student empowerment, transparency and feedback.


 
Can your students do this? Can they speak of their social and academic goals with this level of depth and understanding. Do they know where they are in their learning, where they are going, how to get there? These are student centered data binder conferences.
 

"A guaranteed and viable curriculum (GVC) ensures that all students have an equal opportunity to learn (OTL). Each student will have access to an effective or highly effective teacher, and access to the same content, knowledge and skills in each section or class."
