Developing Child Learning Model

The Developing Child Learning Model is a whole-child approach that respects each child as an individual with his or her own unique strengths, interests, and needs. This learning model incorporates the following principles:

  1. Children need time, space, and resources.
  2. Children retain content when they’re engaged in the learning process.
  3. Children learn important skills when they’re active participants in the learning process.
  4. Integrated learning makes subject matter more meaningful and makes learning more effective.
  5. Children benefit from participation in the arts.
  6. Children benefit from positive role models who exemplify curiosity, creativity, and servant-leadership.
  7. Children experience success when goals are based on their individual needs and abilities.
  8. Assessment should be an integral part of the learning process.
  9. Children benefit from maintaining a healthy lifestyle and developing healthy relationships.

By adhering to these principles, I’m able to build positive relationships with my students, while helping them grow into strong, independent learners.
