About

The View from the Curve is a rumination on the science and practice of teaching and learning-particularly as it relates to what happens when learners are expected to all learn at the same rate and start at the same place on the learning curve.  I also look at what happens when we create learning environments that meet learners where they are at (not where they are supposed to be) and allow them to progress at their own rates without judgement.

In this blog I will explore research and stories related to learning and:

  • Emotions
  • Social skills
  • Personalized learning
  • Competency-based approaches (also known as proficiency-based, mastery-based, or learning for excellence)
  • Mindsets
  • Learning from failure
  • School culture
  • School change methods and models
