Granite State group proposes student-centered learning
Committee members will hear from four students who have taken part in student-centered learning projects within the Manchester school system through the Young Organizers United (Y.O.U.) program, according to Sarah Jane Knoy, executive director of the Granite State Organizing Project.
Student-centered learning is based on the concept that student choice should be given priority in the learning process, she said.· Students often work in teams to solve a problem or explore a concept, rather than answer prescribed questions or memorize material. Learning often takes place in non-traditional settings, often outside the classroom or even the school building — including internships, after-school programs, or through online courses.
A report released by the U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights found that black, Latino and English-learning students were disproportionately under-enrolled in the Manchester school district’s Advanced Placement (AP) courses.
