http://www.scoop.it/t/building-effective-relationships-with-students/p/4020422934/2014/04/28/aspirations-framework
<br/>Mary Perfitt-Nelson's insight:<br/><p>Developed by The Quaglia Institute for Student Aspirations (QISA)</p><p> </p><p>QISA believes that for students to have high aspirations, three Guiding Principles must be <br />present: Self-Worth, Engagement, and Purpose. These Guiding Principles direct the development <br />of educational experiences, from the individual classroom to the entire school building. Students <br />who have aspirations believe in themselves, are meaningfully engaged in their learning and the <br />life of the school, and work with intention toward their goals. <br /> <br />The Guiding Principles, in turn, are lived out through the 8 Conditions that emphasize <br />relationships, active and engaging teaching and learning, and a sense of responsibility over one's <br />own aims and goals. The 8 Conditions are: Belonging, Heroes, Sense of Accomplishment, Fun & <br />Excitement, Curiosity & Creativity, Spirit of Adventure, Leadership & Responsibility, and <br />Confidence to Take Action. The 8 Conditions make a difference because they help schools put <br />into practice the three principles that guide Aspirations work.</p><img src='http://www.scoop.it/rv?p=4020422934&tp=Topic'/><br /><br /><div ><a href='http://www.scoop.it/t/building-effective-relationships-with-students/p/4020422934/2014/04/28/aspirations-framework'>See it on Scoop.it</a>, via <a href='http://www.scoop.it/t/building-effective-relationships-with-students'>Building Effective Relationships With Students</a></div><div style='clear: both'></div>Aspirations_Profile

<br/>Mary Perfitt-Nelson's insight:<br/><p>What accounts for the difference between a student who talks about goals and one who actually <br />reaches them? What makes the difference between a student who works hard at everyday tasks <br />and one whose hard work leads to a promising future? The difference is in the student’s <br />aspirations—his or her ability to set goals and think about the future while being inspired in the <br />present to reach those goals. As the definition suggests, there are essentially two pieces of the <br />aspirations puzzle: dreaming and doing.</p><img src='http://www.scoop.it/rv?p=4020424569&tp=Topic'/><br /><br /><div ><a href='http://www.scoop.it/t/building-effective-relationships-with-students/p/4020424569/2014/04/28/aspirations-profile'>See it on Scoop.it</a>, via <a href='http://www.scoop.it/t/building-effective-relationships-with-students'>Building Effective Relationships With Students</a></div><div style='clear: both'></div>Students don’t need a ‘voice.’ Here’s what they really need.
