Providing Opportunities for Deeper Learning


"The Study of Deeper Learning: Opportunities and Outcomes--funded by the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation--aimed to determine whether students attending high schools with a mature and at least moderately well implemented approach to promoting deeper learning actually experienced greater deeper learning opportunities and outcomes than they would have had they not attended these schools. In this report--our second in a series of three--we focus specifically on the key question: Did students who attended deeper learning network schools have more opportunities to engage in deeper learning than would likely have been the case had they not attended the network schools? This question addresses a fundamental assumption that underpins the deeper learning initiative: that a well implemented approach to deeper learning can result in greater opportunities for students to develop deeper learning competencies. This analysis includes 11 pairs of matched deeper learning network and comparison schools in California and New York. While we collected a wide range of data for this study, we relied primarily on student survey data and examples of the work teachers assigned to students (teacher assignments) for this analysis."
