Student A in Personalized Learning
Traditional classrooms usually worked well for Student A, and they still do, but he also knows that what is really important is learning. He knows what he needs to learn and has learned to set personal goals, so when he finishes assignments and projects he has more ways to self-assess than neatness and length. When he prepares for tests, he goes through what he needs to know and be able to do, and keeps working until he does. Sometimes that means doing less than the teacher has recommended, and sometimes it means doing more. More than being compliant, Student A is his own best advocate in the learning process.
