The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA)cof 2015 supports states and districts in implementing personalized learning, a student-centered approach designed to help all students develop the knowledge, skills, and abilities that will prepare them for college, a career, and life. Personalized learning emphasizes
- developing trusted and caring relationships between teachers and students;
- connecting learning to the real world;
- linking curriculum to students’ interests, strengths, and aspirations;
- providing students individually targeted instruction, practice, and support where they are struggling; and
- creating more exible learning environments.
Personalized learning requires those working in schools to rethink the ways they teach and support students in their learning.
