Homework Help
The Fairview Park Library is one of several branches in the Cuyahoga County Public Library system that will be once again offering free, after-school homework help for students in grades K-8. There will be an open house on Wednesday, September 18 from 3:30 - 5:30 PM for families to meet staff and see the space.
Introduction to the PLP
Our approach to teaching puts whole-child development at the forefront of the educational experience. It's also rooted in the science of how children learn best and designed to drive student engagement, strong student-teacher relationships, and meaningful learning. This program also equips our teachers with comprehensive tools and resources to support every student to reach their potential-both in the classroom and beyond.

Inside the classroom
A hands-on curriculum-with a focus on projects based on real-world scenarios, group work, and mentoring-helps  students put what they're learning into action.

Student engagement
* Teachers help foster an environment where students feel invested in their learning.
* Teachers give students a deeper understanding of what they're learning and why they're learning-and in the way each student learns best.
* Students feel empowered to take ownership of their own learning progress, motivating them to stay engaged.

Student-teacher relationships
* Teachers cultivate deeper connections with students using tools and strategies that give them a better understanding of their students as learners and as people.
* Teachers tailor their teaching to every student's specific needs through thoughtful mentoring sessions and group workshops.
* More meaningful and productive interactions take place, creating a dynamic learning environment.

Meaningful learning
* Instead of simply memorizing information, students focus on developing a strong grasp of class material and effective application of key skills, such as critical analysis and communication.
* Students learn from a curriculum that helps them demonstrate a strong grasp of concepts and key skills before progressing-students move forward once they have shown they understand what they've learned.
* Students see how they're learning applies to their personal interests, future success, and life outside of school.

There are three components that guide this approach to teaching:

Mentoring
Teachers play an additional role as mentors to their students, providing support through weekly 1:1 meetings. Mentors help students identify how to improve progress in their classes and overcome challenges. Mentors also help students develop effective learning strategies, behaviors, and a mindset they can apply in the classroom and to personal goals.

Projects
Teachers show students how their learning is relevant to life outside of school through projects based on real-world scenarios. Students demonstrate the application of real-world skills, such as working effectively with a team and contributing to their community through these hands-on, peer-to-peer projects.

Self-Direction
Teachers help students develop habits associated with lifelong learning, such as the ability to set and follow through on short- and long-term goals, self-awareness, and stress management. Students, parents, and teachers also have access to an online learning platform that provides them with a detailed view of student progress.
