The adaptED Framework™
In today's education landscape, many teacher preparation programs inadvertently overlook a crucial aspect—understanding and embracing the knowledge and experiences of their students. This oversight can unknowingly contribute to the school-to-prison pipeline, disproportionately affecting students who feel misunderstood or punished for being themselves. Without disruption, this cycle will persist, hindering the potential for positive change in our learners' lives.
The adaptED Framework™ empowers educators to break free from traditional teaching methods and embrace a student-centric approach that values each learner's uniqueness. Educators can create an inclusive classroom environment built on respect, trust, and genuine connection by cultivating a deeper understanding of their biases and perceptions.
The journey begins with educators cultivating self-awareness and reflecting on their teaching practices. By becoming more conscious of their biases, strengths, and areas for growth, educators can create a strong foundation for meaningful change.
Educators can tailor their teaching to meet individual needs by leveraging students' strengths and honoring their diverse perspectives. This approach fosters a positive and inclusive learning environment where every student feels seen, heard, and valued.
By implementing the adaptED Framework™, educators can build a supportive classroom community that nurtures collaboration, empathy, and cultural understanding. This community empowers students to thrive academically and emotionally.
