The Learning Plan
“One student at a time” means acknowledging that each student has different strengths, passions, needs, and learning styles. Therefore, each student should have an individual Learning Plan that is tailored to fit him or her. The advisor helps create the Learning Plan with the student, parent, and mentor. S/he helps the rest of the Learning Plan team to understand the philosophy of the school. The advisor makes sure that the projects are authentic, that the student is excited, that the work is challenging, and that the overall plan is realistic. The advisor makes sure that over the year(s) the student’s Learning Plans focus on different Learning Goals and lead to a well-rounded educational plan. The advisor helps students manage their Learning Plan work through the marking period. Learning Plans vary by school and grade level.
