Blueprints for Learning: Ideas that Work
What We Do
Blueprints for Learning provides professional learning, curriculum, and assessment services to schools throughout the United States. We work with educators to customize an approach that better ensures students’ achievement success by understanding the strengths and needs of the school. We are careful not to attend to symptoms, but rather to help staff identify challenges and strengths.
Our work is highly specialized for each client and often begins with an on-site visit to ascertain programmatic and school-specific strengths and needs by talking with administrators and teachers, reviewing curriculum and student assessment data, observing learning, and when appropriate working one-to-one with students. Such immersion allows us to better craft a plan with educators that attends to the challenges. As a result, our work directly helps to extend, deepen, and improve student learning.
Our commitment to clients is often long term and we support the projects we develop with clients through on site work, curriculum development, and the use of Web 2.0 technologies. To begin the process, clients can request a free initial consultation by contacting us by phone, email, or with a tweet.
