Voices from the Field

“Students are not only learning relevant content and how to express themselves, but they are guided to apply their learning to make the world a better place, or their community a better place. It's about getting students to be 21st century-ready, to really work independently, to be broadly literate, and to really contribute to society.”

– Sacramento County Unified School District Instructional Coach
