KIPP Zenith and KIPP Spirit, winners of both Raising Blended Learners and Math Innovation Zones, have been on a blended learning journey focused on two mutually reinforcing goals: students reaching the “college ready” bar in math and students becoming agents of their own learning. KIPP has piloted models in K, 3rd, and Alg. I, each with a unique instructional model but designed around the same student experiences: student agency, academic rigor, blended and personalized learning activities, and data driven learning. Each model was then expanded to adjacent grade levels, and the schools are now implementing across the entire math program, K-8. KIPP continues to focus primarily on students having access to their data, the ability to review and analyze it, and opportunity in the schedule each work to “do something about their data.” In order to build out their classrooms, teachers collaborate monthly to iterate and improved their blended models to ensure greater student learning and agency development. Visitors are encouraged to ask students about what they like and how they’re doing, and whether they feel successful and challenged in their math classrooms.
