Learning Is Community Supported

Do students feel like a faceless cog in the machine of the school-industrial complex, a data point in a sea of achievement scores, a widget that’s waiting to be manufactured from a bell-to-bell 13-year assembly line?

– OR –

Are learners contributing members of a larger community where they feel safe, included, and accepted in pursuit of their learning goals?

Are students seen as a faceless cog in the corporate machine of the school-industrial complex, a widget that’s waiting to be manufactured from a bell-to-bell 13-year assembly line, a data point in a sea of drones?

– OR –

Are learners contributing members of a larger community where they feel safe, included, and accepted in pursuit of their learning goals?

In Community Supported Learning Experiences, learners understand the importance of relationships in school and beyond. They continuously explore the benefit of connections within and between family, school, and the greater community in the development of their academic, social, and emotional needs.

Design Principles

Community Supported learning experiences unite learners as contributing members within a larger community of learning.

  • To what extent do learning experiences help foster relationships between and among stakeholders?
  • How do learners individually and collectively contribute to a larger learning community?
  • To what extent can learners articulate how learning connects to the school or community?
  • In what ways does the community partner and participate in learning experiences?
