Transforming Student Task

The heart of transforming education is transforming the student task. If we are not profoundly changing the things our students do and experience in the process of learning, we aren't really changing anything.

Our tasks must be grounded in high expectations, but they must also give students a chance to practice vital skills and concepts beyond just acquiring facts, which are easily come by in the age of Google. Content is important, but what is more important is what a student can do with that content in a changing world and how they use both knowledge and skills in pursuit of their individual passion.

Theory of Action

IF teachers are supported with resources, learning opportunities, and models to change student tasks incorporating high standards and Jeffco Generations skills,
THEN students will apply and use content knowledge and essential skills through relevant, engaging, and real world learning experiences.
