The Self-Directed Learning Cycle

Summit Learning uses a Self-Directed Learning Cycle in its curriculum to help students prepare for life before and after graduation. This process promotes student development and autonomy in learning. With classrooms designed to promote self-direction, students learn and deliberately practice how to learn.
In the Self-Directed Learning Cycle, teachers work with students to:
  • reflect on what they've learned
  • set goals for what they want to learn
  • plan for how they will reach their goals
  • learn new facts, skills, or ideas
  • show or demonstrate their learning, then reflect

By practicing and developing self-direction, students build skills and habits they can apply in life well beyond graduation. This gives students a sense of empowerment that keeps them motivated and engaged. Eventually — with support — students internalize the Self-Directed Learning Cycle, giving them a foundation for success.

Mindful Mondays
Life is hard. Mindfulness can help.

Join Mrs. Cory for Mindful Mondays at 8:15 a.m.


What?
Mindfulness refers to a set of practices, certain habits of mind - as well as a general way of being in life.

Mindfulness is awareness that arises through paying attention, on purpose, in the present moment, non-judgmentally. It’s about knowing what is on your mind.

Another way to say it - mindfulness is paying attention to your life here and now with kindness and curiosity.
 
When + How?
Mindfulness can be done during sitting meditation, movement activities such as running, walking or yoga and even while eating, doing school work or during other typical daily moments.
Beginning on December 7th, join Mrs. Cory each Monday morning at 8:15 am to learn how to use mindfulness as a way to help with the challenges present in your daily life. Meet details below!

Why?
Mindfulness practices in schools have been shown to improve students’ emotional well-being, academic performance and relationships.

Email Mrs. Cory with questions or for more information!

Hi Fairview Park Families,

Tis the season! Very different year for us, but let's focus on what we can do to make this holiday fun for us with our family.

This LINK will take you to a brochure that has all kinds of information about Coping with the Holidays! Ideas like:
*How to overcome stress

Let's all try to rise above all this and try to have the best holiday ever!

Have a great week! Ms. Sullivan
