  • High Quality Instruction Transforms
    • Education for the 21 st century:
      • Interconnected thinking
      • Global literacy
      • Flexible application of skills
      • Problem solving
  • “ An education that teaches you to understand something about the world has done only half of the assignment. The other half is to teach you to do something about making the world a better place.” ~ Johnetta Cole, Former President, Spelman College
  • Effective Instructional Practices
  • Billig, Root, and Jesse (2005) found that using service-learning to teach content standards was among the strongest predictors of all academic outcomes .
  • Teachers who aligned their service-learning activities with standards had students who scored higher on measures of academic efficacy and engagement than those who did not. Billig, S. H. & Broderson, R. M. (2007). Case studies of effective practices in the partnership in character education project: Evaluation for the School District of Philadelphia. Denver, CO: RMC Research Corporation.
  • Studies have shown achievement gains on measures of cognitive complexity and problem-solving (Billig & Meyer, 2002; Meyer & Billig, 2003); on grade point averages (Kirkham, 2001) and motivation to learn (Ritchie & Walters, 2003).
  • It has long been recognized that traditional teaching techniques often fail to encourage “deep” learning of subject content, which goes beyond short-term rote memorization to enable the assimilation of new knowledge in a way which allows re-application to novel situations. Entwhistle, N.J. (2007) Styles of Learning and Teaching: An Integrated Outline of Educational Psychology. London: David Fulton.
