Empowering Students - Scott McLeod

After struggling to allow students the space and freedom to make choices both about what they read and about how they respond to or represent what they have learned from their reading, I know that this type of learning is much more sustained, powerful, and realistic for today's student's. I also know that students at all levels are much more engaged with this approach.

Are students meeting the standards when these techniques are used? I believe students who are actually reading are definitely meeting more of the standards than students who are not reading.

Can their achievements accurately be measured? Well, in my experience, students taught in many diverse ways have consistently performed as expected on standardized tests and on departmental aligned testing.
