Students actively exercise voice and choice in the classroom through personal goal-setting, reflection, and instructional decision-making (as appropriate).Operational Enablers
Used to tell a student’s academic and personal story. A learner profile includes a student's strengths, areas of growth, interests, aspirations, and how he learns best. A student's profile should empower him to own his learning and advocate for what he needs in order to be successful.
Personal Learning Paths
Customized roadmaps for all students to help them reach their academic destination. A personal learning path describes how a student will master a concept or skill - what lessons and activities she will engage in to become an expert in rigorous content.
Flexible Learning Environments
Allows students to have voice and choice in when, where, and how they learn. Depending on the student, a student may learn in a big group, small group, or by himself - sometimes all in one day.
