Seven Oaks Met School Builds Curriculum around Each Student
Pearson, George
Education Canada, v49 n5 spec iss p22-24 2009
This article features Seven Oaks School Division Met School in Winnipeg, a high school that limits class size to 15, tailors its curriculum to the needs and interests of its individual students, places students in community-based internships two days a week, and keeps the teacher--called an advisor--with the same group of students from Grade 9 through graduation. It's a new approach to learning that officials hope will pay dividends for students. Seven Oaks Met is part of a network of alternative schools known as Big Picture Learning, which are usually set up to serve disaffected and disengaged students who might otherwise leave school before graduation.
