Preparing Resilient Students for an Uncertain World
"Children today are growing up in a rapidly changing world. They will meet head-on with challenges, the likes of which we are only beginning to conceive. They will enter a workforce with demands we cannot even imagine. They will need to be responsive, resilient, and ready to face adversity. So, how do we prepare 21st-century students?
"At Holy Family, we are entering our fourth year of personalized learning, and we find our experience couldn’t be more relevant given the current circumstances. This past spring was the ultimate test of our personalized learning model, and it has proven its worth."
In case you missed Mr. Bormann's op-ed in the newspaper this summer, you can read it on our blog.
Personalized Learning Pillar I: Content Mastery
Looking for a good book to read while you're stuck at home? Stop by the Holy Family central office at 2005 Kane St., Dubuque, to pick up a copy of Prepared by Summit Learning founder Diane Tavenner (sitting in the entryway, while supplies last!) In December 2019, Bill Gates featured Prepared on his holiday reading list.
Diane Tavenner started Summit Learning because of her personal passion to “do whatever it takes” to support all students. You’ll enjoy her perspective on education from the viewpoint of a teacher, administrator, and a mom. We think you’ll find Diane has wise words for educators and parents alike.
In sharing Prepared, we hope to help the community understand the story behind Summit Learning and how it has grown over the course of almost 20 years to become a remarkable model for schools throughout the country, including Holy Family. We hope you find a connection between Diane’s story and Holy Family’s tireless pursuit of excellence, as we work to ensure our students are Prepared for a fulfilled life.
If you enjoy the book, please share it with a friend!
