The Kaleidoscope Collective for Learning is a cohort-based approach to spreading Deeper Learning throughout the Commonwealth.
Kaleidoscope has two primary means of influencing student achievement.
First, we partner with schools through a cohort model to:
Kaleidoscope pairs convenings for participating schools with ongoing support for instructional leaders.
Second, we provide a toolkit of exemplar tasks and professional learning modules for teachers and leaders. Based on our work with our initial cohorts, we will develop a broader, open-source toolkit for the field.
Other Kaleidoscope Collective for Learning projects include proposing policy and practices to promote Deeper Learning in schools. This includes work on possible new forms for the fifth and eighth grade science MCAS. We are also working to accelerate accurate and widespread discussion of Deeper Learning, including the soon-to-be launched Deeper Learning Ambassador Fellowship for teachers.
