Sharing progress spurs success
“One Child at a Time” is the core of both our teaching and assessment philosophy. At Lerner, we monitor each child’s academic progress and then share this progress as a way to nurture their love of learning. Our positive, individualized feedback is tied explicitly to each child’s goals and is based on teacher observations, portfolios, interactive projects, and student checklists that incorporate self-reflection. These rubrics show that there is no “perfect” achievement standard from which children fall short, but rather learning goals they are working toward. Our task as educators is to document each child’s journey and to continuously adjust instruction to support every student’s personal growth.
