The JCPS Student Backpack of Success Skills can be a rehash of what has been done before. Or it can be TRANSFORMATIVE. To be truly transformative, teachers must think differently, view students differently, and teach differently. We must enable students to become EXPERTS in things in which they are interested, even if it is something we don't know much about. Teachers can find ways to connect those interests to any subject area; that is PERSONALIZED LEARNING. And when students are treated as experts, then they will be ENGAGED and EMPOWERED to defend their learning with great PASSION.
