Sustainable learning brings back the ‘fire’ in instruction
As we have discussed in previous weeks, learning environments that provide voice and choice to students and encourage them to strive for higher-levels of thinking like invention are incredibly beneficial to students – both in terms of their engagement and how long knowledge sticks with them.
Teachers tell us that these sustainable learning strategies have been a game changer for them too, because it allows them to really differentiate learning for each student, allowing them to know and understand students better than ever before.
These strategies fit perfectly with Douglas County School District’s Guaranteed and Viable Curriculum, which provides teachers with the flexibility needed as they change their craft to better meet the needs of students.
