Why Build Successful Learning Communities?


Vanderwey s brandt b november 2012 building successful learning communities workshop

Relationships

Relationships are positive and are essential for establishing optimal conditions for learning and include high expectations around challenging work, student social support for learning, and differentiation of instruction based on student needs.

  • Powerful Teaching and Learning Through the Lens of

  • Rigor, Reflection, Relevance, and Relationships

    • Rigor

      • Skills and/ or Knowledge are manifested as students develop conceptual understanding, not just recall.

    • Refection

      • Thinking is evident because teachers provide opportunities for students to respond to open-ended questions, explain their thinking process, and reflect to create personal meaning.

    • Relevance

      • Application of skills, knowledge, and thinking in relevant and/or real-world contexts is essential for engaging students in their learning and for helping students make connections that lead to understanding.
