Lisa Purvin Oliner's curator insight, July 3, 7:17 AM


The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) still need to be examined to complete this proposal. That being said, some language surrounding this important concept of personal learning planning is present. Where the Personal Learning Plan (PLP) matters most is when high school juniors and seniors need to examine their interests and make plans for after school whether it be for general work experience, interning in a profession, or applying for college. The reason that the standards are so critical is that the adults appear knowledgeable and the route meaningful. Often the measure of a student's Emotional Quotient (EQ) is based on poor assessments, poor application, and historically embedded myths. The concept is rendered useless if the guide's plan is inadequately considered. Go Vermont Agency of Education!
