Birdville ISD is working to improve high school literacy achievement in 9th and 10th grade classes at their traditional high schools, and to reinvent their alternative high school campus (Shannon High School) to a high achieving campus through personalized blended learning. Participants who visit Richland High will see 9th and 10th grade high school students with opportunities to make choices about the learning activities they select to master specific learning objectives, and engaged with multiple modalities to accomplish their learning goals. Visitors will also see evidence of teachers using data to create various learning pathways for students, pull small instructional groups, and consult with individual students. At Shannon, participants will see students in all subject areas actively engaged in learning through multiple pathways including online curricula, teacher-led instruction and peer collaboration. They will also visit a blended reading intervention classroom where students who opt in have experienced significant increases in reading skills.
