Learning Partnerships and Personalization

from Zaretta Hammond’s Culturally Responsive Teaching and the Brain (2014)

Learning partnerships are at the heart of our school. We believe it is our responsibility as educators to initiate and nurture trusting relationships with our students because we know that this is paramount to deep, meaningful, transformative learning. Our students teach us how to teach them. We use this knowledge to access instructional resources and design curriculum that is culturally relevant while accelerating students’ learning. This is how we know that all of our students will engage in and enjoy the unique learning experience that UpGrade Media Arts Schools offer.
