Brian Culot, Ed.D., Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum & Instruction of South Orangetown Central School District in South Orangetown, NY, has shared some observations on student retention in his latest blog post. A client of IDE Corp. for several years, Culot describes how the district and IDE have been working “to create highly engaging problem and project-based learning units of study” which provide students “with opportunities to demonstrate learning by teaching rather than testing knowledge.”

Culot shares a quote from Dr. Nancy Sulla’s book Students Taking Charge: “If children are to become lifetime learners, they must be able to assess themselves, set goals, develop and implement a plan of action, utilize resources, and assess progress.”
