How do you make a 400-year old text relevant? Tie in media, blogs, films, and multimedia. Have debates, explore a graphic novel! myPerspectives connects to 21st century learners in profound ways.
myPerspectives creates a teacher-led, student-centered classroom. The literature gets students excited to read and respond through conversations and writing. The teacher models concepts for the class, then students collaborate in smaller groups on specific tasks. Next, students complete independent work and come back and share their learning. This framework supports and challenges students to become collaborative and self-directed learners.
Knowing and using skills are an integral part of myPerspectives. The program is backward designed from standards-based learning outcomes. All activities, instruction, and assessments contribute to students demonstrating their learning in response to an achievable performance-based assessment. Students integrate the knowledge they acquired, apply critical thinking skills, cite evidence, and use effective expression to respond to a complex multi-step writing and/or speaking and listening task.
