Learning and Instruction
Learning and instruction at Compass Learning Center focuses on continuing to build upon each learner’s foundational skills. Learners are engaged throughout the day with learning opportunities at their developmental level. Learners are challenged and find success and joy in learning.
Opportunities are created for creative thinking, collaboration, problem solving, and reflection. In creating the Ideal Learning Experience, learners individual goals, interests, and learning styles guide their learning experiences. One way this is done is through the use of Project-Based Learning (PBL).
Project-Based Learning is a research-based instructional practice that allows learners to gain knowledge and skills by working for an extended period of time to investigate and respond to an authentic, engaging and complex question, problem, or challenge.
By integrating content across the disciplines and taking into account learners’ interests and learning styles, facilitators will provide meaningful learning opportunities for each and every learner.
