And, because youre labeled a third grader, you have to fit in a third-grade classroom, when you can actually do fourth or maybe fifth-grade math. So, its all non-graded. The teachers are going to be known as facilitators And, the students are learners. Jez explained that students, based on their age, will have a home base, in which they will sit with others of their age, or traditional grade level, for the purpose of certain district reporting and state assessment testing. But, they will move through their day based on their own knowledge and skills. Jez described the initiative as very exciting. webpageOne parent of a district student heading into Hydetown Elementary School reportedly told Jez after hearing of the incoming program that she and her family had decided against moving to Ohio for an opportunity to, instead, remain in the Titusville Area School District. Every student has different needs, said board member Dwight Proper. Jez responded, Every student can learn, but they learn in their own time and in their own way. So, thats what this model is going to do. Hydetown Elementary School Principal Lisa Royek told the school board that, following a recent meeting at her school: Im telling you, youve never seen a more excited group of staff members. She said the staff worked very hard all summer, to prepare, and acknowledged there will be stumbles, here and there. Jez said the program will advance into the rest of the schools in the district because, well have kids coming out of Hydetown ready to rock and roll into middle school. She said it will be district-wide hopefully next year. Ultimately, it should engage our students more fully, and help them understand more that what they are learning is applicable across all content areas, she explained. Royek said that, in response to parent questions at the recent meeting, We assured them that the middle school is already set up to do that. The new approach for the local school district comes from two books Inevitable: Mass Customized Learning, and Mindset: The New Psychology of Success. Mindset is written by Carol Dweck, a world-renowned Stanford University psychologist, written after decades of research on achievement and success. http://noahbaileypower.prosportsmall.com/2016/08/01/a-topical-overview-of-important-details-of-job-huntingInevitable is written by Chuck Schwahn and Beatrice McGarvey.
