Student centered schools benefit from the dynamic emotional network to student learning during effective facilitation
Student centered learning focuses on the student’s needs, abilities, interests, and learning styles with the teacher as the facilitator of learning. Student centered learning requires the students to be active participants in their own learning which requires a high level of self-worth and self-confidence.
With an abundance of inner self-worth and self-confidence, the student will be highly successful in academics and the student will perform in a way that creates good feelings by the student, the teachers, and the parents.
School buildings where student success is a priority will improve student learning from CPR: Control of focused energy, and Purposeful choice of words while Respecting adults and students.
Adults have the focused ability to shape student motivation and self-worth by directing energy to where it will have impact on student success. By encouraging beliefs consistent with positive outcomes, students will thrive at school, in the home, and in the community.
Student centered schools demand the purposeful choices of words and intentional use of phrases to acknowledge each student in the act of demonstrating values and beliefs of school-wide and classroom philosophies. As a student is told that by being caught in an act he is dedicated to his studies, this fosters student self-worth and self-confidence, which shapes a student to be ready to learn.
Student centered schools outline the consequences for inappropriate behaviors and follow through with no warnings. The plan for the consequence is set in place and the next moment is new and fresh. There are no additional adverse behaviors, comments, reprimands, and reminders of the behavior by adults or peers about the inappropriate behavior. The consequence for the behavior is the outcome, period. Consequences are created and negotiated by a team, continuously maintained, and consistently followed through by all school staff.
Student centered schools minimize time off task and keep students engaged in learning. Through focused energy and use of intentional words, students will be intrinsically motivated to learn.
Student centered learning impacts design of curriculum, course content, and interactivity of courses in all subjects. The emotional thread of all subjects as the teacher facilitates the content must foster self-worth to the core as a foundation for student success. Effective facilitation of the content includes control of the teacher’s energy with an intentional choice of words when spoken to the class, to the student, and to others during the school day.

Ranking School Communities and focusing on student success: you are here to focus on the dynamic emotional network of student learning
The following is from the NH Profile Website: The purpose of the School District Profile is to help anyone involved with education at the local or state level – parents, professional educators, school board members, students, business and community leaders – to learn more about NH schools. The Profiles are meant to help foster deeper conversations about the quality of schools, but numbers alone do not tell the whole story.
Test scores are important, but only if they prompt a closer look at other facets of the educational landscape. The information is available to ask substantive questions about schools, the quality of instruction, and student learning, such as:
- What are the most important educational goals for each district and school?
- Do goals describe desired student outcomes?
- How is success measured?
- What investment is being made in high-quality professional development?
- What does quality student work look like and how can instruction be provided to support it?
- How can we assure that facilities are up-to-date?
- Are parents confident that schools are healthy and safe environments?
- How have districts and schools developed a strong partnership with parents and community members?
- What investment is being made in teacher recruitment, training, and support?
- What investment does your community make in early learning?
The law requires that the Department rank order the school communities in terms of performance on the statewide NECAP (New England Common Assessment Program) tests. While there may be the urge to compare schools across communities, numbers and test scores can help focus the discussion on three simple questions:
- What should all students know and be able to do?
- How will success and progress be measured?
- What needs to happen in terms of educational programs to ensure these goals are met?
Student centered schools can focus on academics when the dynamic emotional network of student learning is balanced
Test scores are a fact of school business in today’s world. A student needs to be ready to learn and then ready to test to be measured by a quantitative test score. In reference to the three simple questions, students need to be ready to learn in order to learn what adults think they should know and be able to do. When students are ready to learn, only then can success be had by all and progress can be measured. What happens when schools determine that their student centered school is in need of dynamic emotional balance with consistent strategies to ensure students are ready to learn? What can schools do to improve the foundation of the interwoven and networked emotions that link to learning?
