Why Graide Academy

Why Graide Academy

"After four years of teaching, I can attest to the fact that your most important function in your classroom each day is not determining what your students are thinking, creating, writing, solving, discussing, reading, evaluating, comparing, or applying, but rather how you are thoughtfully responding to their work."

Student-Driven Feedback

Student-Driven Feedback

To be successful in the 21st century, students must be in the driver seat when it comes to their learning. To be the driver, students must internalize their learning goals and be aware of their progress.  They must learn how to self-reflect on their work and ask their teacher for targeted feedback if they are going to graduate with the ability to solve problems creatively and also communicate their processes, challenges, and findings.
