At The Rhoades School we use an inquiry based, constructivist approach to teaching and learning. Students construct their own understanding and knowledge of new material through experiencing and reflecting on their learning process. Teachers pose authentic questions and challenges prompting students to think deeply, rather than simply presenting information.
The following research-based models serve as a framework for teaching practices at The Rhoades School:
Habits of Mind
Renzulli's Three Ring Model
Social & Emotional Learning
Understanding by Design
