WJIS Next & Best Practices
Are our classrooms designed for student success? This is the question our teachers asked themselves this summer as we prepared for the upcoming school year.
If we take a step back in time, we see that not much has changed in the design of classrooms over the past 100 years. So we asked ourselves, what are we doing to provide the best possible learning experiences for our students?
We are creating an environment where students are setting goals and monitoring their own progress. Student work and achievements are displayed and celebrated. Students are engaged as active participants in their learning and our teachers are moving from a stand and deliver format to a 21st century model of learning facilitator. We recognize that our students are digital natives and we are working to provide opportunities for them to plug in and connect to the world around them.
