By personalizing instruction to match a child’s interests, strengths and learning styles, teachers find that students welcome more challenge and stretch their capacity to learn.
Prescriptive, remedial approaches to achievement are falling short.
Accountability for the truly educated mind in today’s knowledge-driven economy should first and foremost take account of high-end learning skills.
These are the learner-centered skills that grow young minds, promote genuine student engagement, and increase achievement.
