Temple High School is leveraging blended learning to increase 1:1 and small group time with students, targeting specific academic needs and learned helplessness and building intentional relationships–where students become valued partners with their teachers, increasing student agency, giving students not only transparent access to their learning data, but also the power to act on it in pursuit of their own learning pacing or pathway needs. THS’ 11 pilot classrooms include Algebra I, Pre-Cal, English, Social Studies, Chemistry, Biology and Advanced French. Temple began with a deep dive into the Flipped Blended Model and now continue to work to leverage this flipped content and other online resources to allow students flexibility in their pacing and pathways and “free up teachers” to create dynamic instructional groups based on learning data and engage students in 1:1 coaching and goal setting conversations.
Hector P. Garcia has embraced the concept of personalized learning for all. Classrooms from kindergarten to fifth grade; monolingual and bilingual have utilized individualized playlists to increase student agency and given students the power to determine their next action in obtaining mastery of the grade level concept. Student data trackers, classroom goals, and student reflections have provided students, teachers, and families with real-time data that supports opportunities to intervene or extend student learning.
