Framework for Enhancing Student Learning

Mission Statement:
At Ridgeview, students, staff and parents believe that as a community of learners we must create and preserve a safe, calm and caring environment where EVERYONE is welcomed, respected and valued, and able to learn and achieve at their personal best.

Goal #1:  To improve student thinking competencies

Strategies used to support improving student thinking competencies will include the following:

  • Use of ADST Curriculum to explore design thinking
  • Explicit teaching of academic (inquiry, questioning, design thinking…) and social language (collaboration and problem solving) to enhance thinking in multiple contexts
  • Use of Real Life Problems and Connections to the Real World to inquire/question, investigate and design solutions
  • Continue to use framework of Ridgeview Student Learner Profiles to build and enhance student awareness of learner strengths
  • Create flexible learning environments to support development of core competencies (thinking, communication, personal and social competencies) (Library Commons, Makerspace, Space Redesign Project)
