As I continue interviews for my graduate school project involving innovation in learning environments within my school district (find part 1 here), I was able to talk with three amazing educators at Brookfield East High School. Again, I'll be short on the introductions to the videos because I want you to watch them.
Bill Kujawa was one of the first teachers in Elmbrook Schools to begin using technology as a lever for personalizing learning in the classroom. In this interview learn how he is able to personalize instruction in his classroom and the importance of skills based instruction for students. Bill also speaks to how he can have students meet all the same learning targets as a traditional course but provide more context and deeper understanding.
Molly Mathia and Lindsay Sayles embarked on a unique journey 2 years ago when they decided to merge their English 9 and World History courses into a single year-long cohort. In this interview, they explain why they undertook this challenge, how they were able to merge their curriculums, challenges they faced, and student successes.
I'll be interviewing my last group of educators tomorrow. In addition, I'm excited to know that our district is recruiting a new cohort of educators to begin their journey into innovative practices this February. I look forward to attend that meeting and see what is in store for Elmbrook Schools.
