Signature Learning Experience
PERSONALIZED LEARNING APPROACH
Through our Personalized Learning Approach, students spend some of the day engaged in self-paced digital learning. Adaptive learning systems and platforms with their powerful feedback loops are used in blended learning environments for greater personalization. This approach will allow Scholars to practice standards taught in the class and provide teachers will real time assessment data that indicates their understanding. The ability for students to track their learning means that they can develop valuable self-monitoring skills and engage in their personal learning progress. The capacity to see current data allows teachers to understand each student’s performance. Our personalized learning approach places the scholar on center stage, not the teacher and this will create an open space for daily routines, independent learning activities, problem-based learning, and purposeful pacing.
Community Place Based Education
Place-based education (PBE) immerses students in local heritage, cultures, landscapes, opportunities and experiences, using these as a foundation for the study of language arts, mathematics, social studies, science and other subjects across the curriculum. PBE emphasizes learning through participation in service projects for the local school and/or community. Place-Based Education (PBE) is an approach to learning that takes advantage of geography to create authentic, meaningful and engaging personalized learning for students.
Social and Emotional Intelligence
(SEI) framework builds our scholars capacity to apply consequential thinking and use a variety of strategies that foster positive relationships with peers and adults resulting in fewer disciplinary infractions and serving as the foundation to healthy school environment. ScholarMade schools implements a Social and Emotional Curriculum to cultivate a healthy and joyful environment. The curriculum is a research-based training program for educators and children that is comprised of three key components: RULER is an evidence-based framework for developing Emotional Intelligence program from Yale University; Playworks is a structured program that creates a culture of play before, during, and after school every day with a skilled Playworks Coach.; and Conscious Discipline which equip educators to integrate social-emotional learning, discipline and self-regulation so they spend less time policing behavior and more time teaching vital life skills.. Conscious Discipline uses everyday events to cultivate emotional intelligence through a self-regulation program integrating social-emotional learning and discipline. Before the individualized needs of our students can be met, we must first provide a positive and consistent learning environment across the board and a system for identifying students with specific needs.
