Life Ready Learning for STEAM
Burleson ISD teamed up with e2L for the 2016 – 2017 school year to bring student-oriented learning into the 21st century for its STEAM middle school campus. The Burleson STEAM campus administrator sought to establish the campus as a truly innovative school experience and provide learners with the tools to be life ready..
Using the e2L Blended Learning Framework, Burleson ISD’s STEAM campus teachers and leaders received regular one-on-one, individualized coaching opportunities to design learning experiences and to ensure fidelity of implementation for blended learning.
In the 2017-2018 school year, the campus invested in a group of specially selected teachers to become campus coaches to sustain the support and personalized professional development process and to facilitate the development of a deeply rooted coaching culture on campus. The campus again partnered with engage2Learn to provide the structure of the eGROWE coaching protocol and individualized support of these campus teacher coaches.
As a result of their e2L partnership, the campus saw increased attendance and a drop in discipline referrals. 2017 Algebra I EOC passing rate at the STEAM campus was an astounding 100%. 91.2% of students saw a raw score increase on the STAAR test, thanks to blended learning.
