The T.R.A.C.E.S Framework
Treat the children by talking about something they are interested in (the hook).
Invite the children to remember what they already know about this topic.
Have children seek new information, analyze it, apply it.
Children take this information and apply it to new situations by creating a product.
Children evaluate their product using self checklists and assessments.
Children share this new product with their peers.
Our teaching style follows most similarly to the Traditional Public School Approach, however, we believe that the student’s interests are the best place to start when developing a learning plan. We believe children need to be guided in order to grow but do offer some flexibility and choice. We believe that the child should have a well-rounded education that incorporates many different learning opportunities and assessments!
