- Does your district have schools using student-centered
learning? If so, how do their student outcomes – graduation
rates, dropout rates, standardized assessments – compare to
similar students at traditional campuses?
- If your school is planning to adopt student-centered learning
as a pedagogical approach, what specific goals are they hoping to
achieve, and how will those goals be quantified?
- Which students are being given access to student-centered
learning opportunities, particularly competency based
instruction? Is it being used only during summer months or
vacation breaks to allow remedial students to make up missing
credits, or do more advanced students have an opportunity to get
a jump start on college credit?
- What professional development do the teachers receive to help
them implement student-centered learning? Is the training only at
the front end or do they receive ongoing support?
- How do the students feel about the approach, and what changes
have they noticed in their classrooms? What do they see as its
strengths and weaknesses?
