At ShadowGlen, students are solvers and creators. They learn to collaborate and communicate. Through challenging, authentic projects, they learn to adapt and engage in the world around them.
New Tech Network (NTN) is a leading design partner for comprehensive school change. NTN works closely with districts and schools to create innovative learning environments. Through a proven school model, a project-based learning platform, and powerful professional development we coach schools toward lasting change and ongoing improvement.
ShadowGlen implements Balanced Literacy, Positive Behavior Interventions and Support (PBIS), Professional Learning Communities (PLC) and Project Based Learning (PBL) as part of their instruction and discipline practices.
Professional Learning Communities (PLC): A PLC is an ongoing process in which educators work collaboratively in recurring cycles of collective inquiry, and action research to achieve better results for the students they serve.
Project Based Learning (PBL): PBL is a teaching method in which students gain knowledge and skills by working for an extended period of time to investigate and respond to a complex question, problem, or challenge.
Positive Behavior Interventions and Support (PBIS): PBIS is a proactive approach to establishing the behavioral supports and social culture needed for all students in a school to achieve social, emotional and academic success.
Balanced Literacy: Balanced literacy is a comprehensive program of language arts acquisition that is part of our reading instruction. It contains all of the components necessary for students to master written and oral communication.
