Elaborating on our LAB21 Ideas

Learner-Centered

Personalized Learning will raise student achievement because:

  • Each student has defined, clear and rigorous learning expectation
  • Students are working in their instructional level (Zone of Proximal Development)
  • Students are more engaged because they experience challenge and success
  • Students are valued as individuals therefore they work harder and reach higher
  • Opportunities to explore interests and develop talents.

Active Inquiry

  • Learners engage in overarching STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math) projects developing driving research and essential questions.
  • Advantages:
    • Projects meet the needs of different types of learners
    • All content learning is connected
    • A deeper understanding of content is developed by the learner
    • Emphasizing depth over breadth
    • Integrating and contextualizing the development of skills and domain knowledge

Bold Thinkers

Bold thinkers show a deep love of learning and respect for our community.

  • Students will engage in learning that is meaningful and relevant
  • Service learning goals are clear and aligned with curriculum
  • Learning is experiential and applied; deepening understanding
  • Students are active partners in identifying community needs and planning

21st Century Communicators
