October 7, 2009

Our colleague at the Antioch Center for School Renewal, Laura Thomas, has an article in the most recent issue of Kappan Magazine.
Congratulations Laura!

From Experience to Meaning: The Critical Skills Program

Phi Delta Kappan, Vol. 91, No. 2 (October 2009): pp. 93-96 (online only).
By Laura Thomas
The Critical Skills model combines experiential learning, problem-based learning, and rigorous high standards within an intentionally created collaborative learning community. The model integrates four powerful teaching methods into a coherent strategy, including a collaborative learning community, experiential learning, problem-based learning, and standards-driven learning. The primary method is the challenge, a carefully crafted problem that connects the curriculum to its real-world application.(4pp.)
