Standards Based Learning: Using what we know about the brain to improve learning for all students.


Standards-based learning is not a program. It is not a system. It is not a new-fangled-next-best-thing kit. It is a way to think about teaching based on what we know about the brain, about students, and about how to maximize learning.

Change is not easy, but as the teachers who are making changes will tell you, the results are worth the hard work.
