BRIGHTON ACADEMY'S NEW ACADEMIC SCHOOL MODEL

In EL schools, students learn by conducting “learning expeditions” rather than by sitting in a classroom being taught one subject at a time. EL works on developing the character — as well as the intellect — of students. More than 150 schools in 30 states use this model— including Syracuse City School District’s own ELMS.



 
 

EL Learning Model

1. Learning targets in student-friendly language

2. Interdisciplinary projects (relating to more than one subject)

3. Demonstrating learning through high quality student work
