When students feel excited about learning and respected in their classrooms, they can succeed. In student-centered environments, teachers create a collaborative culture by valuing each student’s unique strengths and needs. They empower learners to have agency and voice, solve real-world challenges, and reflect on progress. Student-centered teaching and learning is not a “nice-to-have” - it is key to academic achievement, and builds crucial skills like resilience, independence, creativity, and collaboration which are needed to thrive in our rapidly changing world.
Based on a decade of learning from and supporting thousands of teachers, we’ve identified 4 essential elements of student-centered teaching and learning. In each of our services
, we help teachers and leaders build their skills in a few “Focus Areas” that meet their individual needs and school or district priorities. Our coaches create personalized, job-embedded, supportive environments for significant professional growth.
