Time for Deeper Learning: Lessons from Five High Schools

Abstract

"Through a series of case studies the report, Time for Deeper Learning: Lessons from Five High Schools, explores how schools invest one of their most fundamental resources - time with students - to meet their goals for student learning. The report describes five deeper learning priorities that drive and shape learning time across the featured schools. These five priorities then work in concert to generate a high-quality and highly-relevant educational experience for students:

1. Building a positive learning environment that fosters self-initiated learning
2. Using an interdisciplinary, project-based approach
3. Engaging in "authentic" assessments of learning and skill development, included self-reflection and peer critiques
4. Connecting students to the "real world"
5. Encouraging teachers to work collaboratively and as deep learners themselves in pursuit of excellence"
