Moving Toward Implementation

Unanticipated Consequences: Balancing Educational and Social/Emotional Growth

One of the advantages of blended learning is that it offers students the ability to move at their own pace. In order to give our students more control over their learning we also allow them to move fluidly between subjects so that they take responsibility for their learning by managing their time.

The way this works in general terms is that for a large block of time every morning students choose one of four classrooms: the math classroom, the science classroom, the english/writing classroom or the social studies classroom. As a result, students from various grades in our middle school ( and some of our stronger fifth grade students have joined this model as well) may find themselves in the same classroom, often for extended periods of time.
