<! -- /.resource-content -->
From the introduction: “This paper highlights examples of teachers, principals, and schools that have embraced a forward-thinking, student-centered approach to learning outcomes called deeper learning (and are members of the Deeper Learning Network) in order to provide students with the opportunities to develop the skills and competencies they will need to succeed in the future.”
This resource is of high quality, providing a detailed description of deeper learning, examples of deeper learning in practice, and the needed pedagogical shifts to get there. It has high utility for educators at all levels, particularly educators at schools sites who are working as a group to improve student learning in order to achieve college- and career-ready standards. The communication style is very accessible and oriented towards practical application of its principles. It has the potential to be an important tool in creating positive, effective change for students as they strive to be ready for college and career.
