School Trends - New school year brings longer school day for CPS

School Trends - New school year brings longer school day for CPS | Student Engagement and Learning | Scoop.it

Chicago Public Schools chief Jean-Claude Brizard - In a packed auditorium before the ceremonial ringing of the first bell to start a new school year, Brizard told students that a longer school day will bring more academic rigor..

 

"That means more AP (biology), more support for students who need it," Brizard told the crowd. "For elementary schools, it'll mean more recess, more math, more social studies."

 

Lindblom, a selective enrollment school for 7th through 12th graders, saw its school day increase by 41 minutes four days a week. That added time will push the end of the school day to 3:44 on most days and give students more time for classroom instruction scheduled around their needs, said Principal Alan Mather.

“Graduating All Students Innovation Ready” – Tony Wagner

“Graduating All Students Innovation Ready” – Tony Wagner | Student Engagement and Learning | Scoop.it
Improving student achievement through innovation is the latest buzz in education. New test-prep programs, online learning platforms, e-texts, charter school hybrids, and so on are proliferating, but they are only changing the nature of how we deliver the same old content. No one seems to question exactly what students should be achieving beyond better test scores. What matters today, however, is not how much our students know, but what they can do with what they know. None of these innovations addresses this fundamental shift in what our students—and our nation—will need to succeed in the 21st century.
