Comprehensive Diagnostics & Measurement
For students to experience success, they must first be diagnosed. This involves two types of diagnostics. First is the level identification of the student. Second is the content identification of a student. The level identification targets where the student is in certain areas, such as reading, achievement, learning styles, and grade equivalency. The content identification targets the strengths and deficiencies of the student when compared with the level identification.
Personalized Academic Plan
Once diagnostics have been conducted, the results and data must be used to place the student at a correct level within the school and curriculum, and develop an accurate curriculum plan and course. The student’s learning gaps must be addressed. Students must also be allowed to learn at an accelerated pace when possible. This occurs through the integration of technology. Students must be prescribed a “course completion” plan, an “intensive literacy” plan and a “TAKS readiness” plan.
Rigorous & Relevant Learning Opportunities
Students must be given multi-faceted opportunities for success after graduation. Rather than adhere to a one-dimensional expectation for alumni, ResponsiveEd develops opportunities for students that give them a system of choice and personal growth. Students will be prepared for college, experienced in community service, connected with their future work environments and trained in entrepreneurial pursuits.
Differentiated & Self Directed Instruction
Just as each student is different with a unique style of learning and ability, so must the academic environment also be differentiated for each student. ResponsiveEd utilizes extensive technology systems to offer instruction for students that can differentiate between each child and increases the ability of students to think and learn independently. In the early childhood environments, students are introduced to differentiated instruction with technology embedded in the classroom structure. In later years, students can work independently as a natural expectation.
Collaborative Learning Environment
Educators involved with students in a ResponsiveEd school will work together to monitor student progress, facilitate effective learning opportunities, and share collective wisdom to best reach and help students. This collaboration intentionally and aggressively uses data and experience to form the most effective strategies for each student.
Caring & Compassionate Staff
While acknowledging that teaching is a skilled profession, ResponsiveEd educators must possess and exhibit a true love for the classroom, the campus, and the student. Educators at ResponsiveEd are expected to not only love teaching but to also love the student. While holding students to a high standard, educators will consistently provide empathetic and caring love towards each student.
Smaller Campuses “By Design”
Research shows that student body populations thrive within certain numerical boundaries. ResponsiveEd intentionally designs campuses to operate on a scale designed to create effective learning opportunities for each student. This principle applies to campuses as well as classrooms.
