What motivates students to learn and succeed? This was the driving question behind the development of STARS Academy and our resulting decisions about instruction. Our vision is to build on the natural curiosity and creativity of children in order to motivate and engage them as scholars.
There are many articles available about student motivation and every one of them includes variations of the following ideas. These same ideas are at the core of STARS Academy's mission.
Motivating learning experiences:
* Are active, collaborative and promote learning relationships
* Are authentic and relevant to students' lives
* Challenge students to question, reflect, evaluate and make connections between ideas
* Allow students choices about their learning and how they express their knowledge
As you read about many of the engaging features encapsulated in the STARS program, know also that we are committed to making the most of every individual student's learning experiences, every day! Join our journey to the STARS.
