THE LEARNING PRINCIPLES

By Dr. Karen L. Taylor

A profound understanding of the conditions necessary for deep learning leads naturally to high quality teaching. Consequently, classroom practice is ideally based on research-informed principles of learning that draw from a wide range of current research in education, cognitive and social psychology, and neurobiology, all of which contribute to deepening our understanding of how human beings acquire and retain knowledge to make meaning of their world... more

The intersectionality of gender, sexuality, and power has been widely studied by academics seeking to identify and deconstruct the often white, Eurocentric, colonial, patriarchal, heteronormative gaze that dominates a significant portion of popular history, but this is often not incorporated in social studies curricula... more

Would you like a walk through
of the new TIE resume?
By Daniel Kerr

So last week at our new family orientation event, I ran into a joyfully bright eyed and eager second grade girl who could not have been more excited about starting her new school life at ASP.
