Personalized learning is a progressively student-driven model of instruction that amplifies student voice, co-creation, social construction, and self-discovery. In this useful guide, authors Allison Zmuda and Bena Kallick explain the four attributes of personalized learning, provide tips to build student readiness in the classroom, and describe the seven elements of progressively student-driven learning. The true goal of personalized learning is for all students to become self-directed learners who design and manage the development of their own learning experiences. This guide will show you how to get there.

When students are engaged in appropriately challenging work that they find compelling and interesting, they learn more. In this teacher-friendly guide, author Mike Anderson helps teachers across all grade levels and content areas learn how to use choice effectively as a tool for differentiated learning, positive engagement, and powerful learning. This teacher-friendly guide offers a step-by-step process and many practical strategies for teachers to help students who are bored, frustrated, or underperforming come alive to learning through the fundamental power of choice.
Based on their exciting work in the field, Kallick and Zmuda map out a transformative model of personalization that puts students at the center and asks them to employ the set of dispositions for engagement and learning known as the Habits of Mind. They share the perspectives of educators engaged in this work; highlight the habits that empower students to pursue aspirations, investigate problems, design solutions, chase curiosities, and create performances; and provide tools and recommendations for adjusting classroom practices to facilitate learning that is self-directed, dynamic, sometimes messy, and always meaningful.
This guide’s tips, strategies, sample questions and statements, and peacemaking tools will help teachers successfully use restorative practices in their classrooms.
