Vision for Teaching and Learning 2020Mission:
Salisbury...Inspire, Think, Learn, Grow... Together!
THE PURPOSE OF A SALISBURY EDUCATION is to enable all learners to fulfill their full potential as empowered individuals, constructive members of the Salisbury community, productive participants in a changing economy, and engaged citizens of the United States and the world.
COMPETENCY-BASED learning is when the learner works toward competency and strives for mastery in defined domains of knowledge/literacies, skills, and dispositions.
We believe the learning environment should foster the development of the whole child, including skills and dispositions needed for success after graduation.
We believe teaching methods should be grounded in constructivist and constructionist learning theories.
We believe that learner progress is measured in multiple ways, supported with timely feedback to enhance future growth.
PERSONALIZED, RELEVANT, AND CONTEXTUALIZED learning is an approach that uses such factors as the learner’s own passions, strengths, needs, family, culture, and community as fuel for the development of knowledge, skills, and dispositions.
We believe learning is personalized to learner’s’ passions and inquiry, in both content and teaching methods.
We believe project-based learning allows students to utilize their natural talents and interests for authentic, interdisciplinary learning.
We believe the learning environment is characterized by rigor - work that is complex, purposeful and connected to real-world contexts.
We believe learners should have opportunities to develop entrepreneurial attitudes and skills.
We believe co-curricular and extracurricular activities provide valuable opportunities for building character and developing cooperation.
Learning that is characterized by LEARNER AGENCY recognizes learners as active participants in their own learning and engages them in the design of their experiences and the realization of their learning outcomes in ways appropriate for their developmental level.
We believe all learners are active participants in lifelong learning, engaging personal choice and voice as they progress through competencies.
SOCIALLY EMBEDDED learning is rooted in meaningful relationships with family, peers, qualified adults, and community members and is grounded in community and social interaction.
We believe all of our learners are active, important members of a variety of communities (e.g: family, school, ethnic cultures, multimedia and friendship groups), and their understanding of the world develops through these social and cultural interactions.
We believe student achievement is positively affected by the active involvement of engaged parents/guardians and caring adults in a supportive, safe environment.
OPEN-WALLED learning acknowledges that learning happens at many times and in many places and intentionally leverages its expansive nature in the learner’s development of competencies.
We believe the most successful learning environments engage community resources and involve real-world experts in real projects.
We believe the learning environment requires the integration of ever-evolving technologies.
