We are working hard pursuing our shift toward Personalized Learning. This is an exciting time as we begin to allow our student more voice and choice in their learning. They will be able to have a say in how they are learning because we all know that that not all students learn the exact same way. Students will be able to employ a variety of methods to learn including increased technology, choice boards, and playlists. You may have already heard your student talking about some of these things as we are already using them in a few classrooms.
The Counseling Department will be helping in this transition by helping to develop Learner Profiles, helping to develop school-wide procedures, and working with students in changing their way of thinking to a growth mindset. If you are interested in learning more about how you can help develop a Growth Mindset in your child in home, this is an excellent article: http://imaginationsoup.net/2014/09/17/help-child-unmotivated-growth-fixed-mindset/
