Welcome We are delighted to have the opportunity to welcome you to the Learning Opportunities website. All students have, for a variety of reasons, found it difficult to achieve their full potential in other settings. Often their schooling will have been chaotic and fragmented, resulting in them falling behind their peers academically, and as a result they relish the chance to succeed in our smaller and more personal setting.

At Learning Opportunities we pride ourselves in managing the wide ranging social, emotional, behavioural and educational needs of all our students, where they are supported within a consistent, caring and supportive environment. Our dedicated staff team, who have a range of expertise, are passionate about providing the best possible opportunities and outcomes for all of our students. A key feature of what we do is teaching our students to take responsibility for their behaviour and its consequences. We work in partnership with parents, carers and other agencies to help students make positive choices and changes, which will serve them better in their future life.

Webinar Series This webinar is part of a series, Achieving Equity Through Deeper Learning, that focuses on why deeper learning is crucial for students in today’s innovation economy and how we can achieve greater equity in access to deeper learning.

On February 15, the Learning Policy Institute launched a new webinar series, Achieving Equity Through Deeper Learning, that focuses on why deeper learning is crucial for students in today’s innovation economy and how we can achieve greater equity in access to deeper learning. The first webinar, Increasing Opportunities for Deeper Learning, addressed ways that schools and school districts can improve academic achievement, particularly among students who are farthest from opportunity, through engaging students in learning that focuses on meaningful mastery of subjects, critical thinking, problem-solving, collaboration and other skills necessary for college, career, and civic participation in the 21st Century. The webinar included a discussion of successful efforts to introduce and sustain this kind of learning in schools and districts, as well as potential obstacles to successful implementation. This Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Initiative webinar series is supported by a grant from the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation. The Verbatim Agency for American Education: Images of Teachers and Students in Action. This report analyzes the efforts of schools and school districts to improve academic achievement, particularly among students who have been historically underserved. This brief describes performance assessments and their value for guiding and evaluating high school students’ learning, as well as informing colleges and universities about what students know and can do.

In the Oakland Unified School District, a yearlong Graduate Capstone Project provides an opportunity for students to research, analyze, and become experts in a topic of their own choosing.

Increasing educational opportunities for children and youth requires us to rethink the traditional school day. ELO strategies are a core component of community schools and seek to use the school as a vehicle for increasing learning opportunities for students. In essence, community schools are the embodiment of what expanding learning time and opportunities should look like. 365 days of the year, serving students and their family’s needs, and that operates with the support of community partners that can tailor their activities to the school’s academic and non-academic goals.

This report captures the scope and nature of expanded learning  opportunities in  community  school partnerships. The report includes  a new ELO typology and state-of-  the-art ELO  practices that  community schools are implementing. The webinar highlighted the Coalition for Community Schools’ recent report, The Growing Convergence of Community Schools and Expanded Learning Opportunities. The webinar highlighted key findings, best practices and examples from Baltimore, MD and New Haven, CT. The webinar audio will be up shortly.

These blogs are also features in the new report, The Growing Convergence of Community Schools and Expanded Learning Opportunities. By the time they reach 6th grade, middle class kids have likely spent 6,000 more hours learning than kids born into poverty.

2018 Upper Great Plains Transportation Institute is a research and education center at North Dakota State University. As such we are squarely in Wilshaw’s sights and almost certainly due an inspection at some point this year. We were last inspected in November 2011 but a lot of goal post moving has gone on in the intervening months. L has improved since last year. Well, there’s plenty of wonderful teachers who preside over fantastic lessons every day but, like most schools there’s also several other groups. Clearly this needs to be challenged but not by wielding a stick or telling teachers to try harder.

What’s characterised most of these lessons are missed opportunities: learning that could so easily have happened if the teacher had been in a position to notice what their students were doing and able to intervene. How do you go about broaching this with staff? There’s absolutely no point telling teachers to change everything they do: even if they could do it, it wouldn’t work. But what about making one small change? Or a whole list of tiny tweaks? No wonder I look smug: I came up with marginal gains. Team GB Cycling Performance Director, Dave Brailsford, it seems clear that there is huge potential in the idea of making lots of tiny tweaks in our teaching can result in massive improvements in students’ learning.

And then ask yourself whether assessment tasks, however small, align with planned outcomes? Build in time for students to act on feedback. Give students time to answer questions. Get them to discuss first or write down 5 possible answers or whatever. This works especially well if you’re not just asking students to guess the answer you have in your head.

Basketball not table tennis for some suggestion on how to manage questioning well. 5 mins less than you think they need. 2 or 3 things they now know and 1 or 2 things they still have questions about. A lot of classroom activities involve reading and writing. In fact you may strongly disagree with some of them.

The key objective of lesson observations is to evaluate the quality of teaching and its contribution to learning, particularly in the core subjects. No, this list is just a sample of some of the micro improvements we could make to ensure that lessons are less likely to miss opportunities for learning. No single item will shift good teaching to outstanding but if we focus on enough of them we might just do enough to tip the balance. As teachers we will improve our practice by overturning the ill-considered stones in our teaching and having a good look at what crawls out. Find your own lights An actor friend of mine once told me a lovely story about meeting Sir John Gielgud. The ageing thespian took my friend on to the stage of whatever theatre they were performing in and gestured up at the lights. My friend nodded and waited expectantly for the pearl of wisdom about to fall from his ancient mentor’s lips.

You must find your own lights. Many thanks to all the lovely people on Twitter who suggested their own marginal gains. I’m sorry that I’ve not included everything but that’s the point: this is my list. You must find your own list. I sometime need concrete, clear ideas that I feel confident with in my teaching, I think that this article encapsulates everything that I am trying to do and that our school Rossett are quite far down the road of doing! Like most teachers, I looked at the list and thought long and hard about each point.

The new inspection framework is widely seen as a ravening beast out to devour schools that are not delivering to the lofty standards of our hero, the saviour of Mossbourne Academy. Loved reading this, really resonated with me. This is the beauty of an approach like the aggregation of marginal learning gains. Sometimes, we can make a huge difference by making relatively minor, but deliberate improvements.

Twice As Nice: Great Lunches from Leftovers 5 Photos

I’ve been reading the economist Bryan Caplan’s new book, The Case Against Education with great interest. As I’m sure everybody already knows, mind sets are beliefs about the nature of characteristics like intelligence. If you’re a parent and your child misbehaves in public, what do you do? This is part of a series of posts adapting Jordan Peterson’s book, 12 Rules of Life to the context of eduction.
