21st Century Learning

Weller Students are Creative, Critical thinkers, Communicators, and Collaborators...

Our goal at Weller Elementary School is to prepare our students for middle school, high school, college and beyond.  In 2012, our staff strategically crafted and designed a blended-learning rotation model with the intent of providing our students with a rich learning experience.   By combining traditional teaching with online learning, we provide a multi-modal learning environment that addresses the various learning styles of our diverse students.   This year students will be developing and enhancing their skills in communication, collaboration, critical thinking, creativity and individual learning.  

 

The Blended Learning Rotation Model provides opportunities for your child to rotate into the learning lab as part of their curriculum.  Classroom instruction will be customized to help meet student’s individual academic needs.  The small group teacher-led instruction, small group student collaboration, and customized online learning help enhance student motivation and engagement through a multi-modal design.  Our student’s benchmark assessment data shows consistent growth across grade level.  Learn more about this program at http://www.christenseninstitute.org/joseph-weller-elementary-school/#sthash.ymxV0OHe.dpuf

 

Learning Lab

Weller Learning Lab is equipped with Chrome notebooks for student use.  As part of the 21st Century Education, our students will have the opportunity to use technology as a tool to enhance collaboration, creativity, communication, and critical thinking skills that are essential for today’s world.
