Rigor, Relevance, and Relationship embedded in Experiential Learning support and challenge TAGOS learners.
A LEARNER-CENTERED FRAMEWORK
TAGOS Leadership Academy is a student-centered academic environment in which Personalized Learning Plans guide each individual’s learning goals and post-secondary plan. The main vehicle by which students achieve their goals is project-based learning. Due to the personalized learning approach utilized at TAGOS and the staff’s ability to build a culture supportive of social and emotional needs, the school is able to take highly at-risk and disenfranchised students and change their life trajectory.
PROJECT FOUNDRY AT TAGOS
"Project Foundry is not only the warehouse of project proposals and credits for TAGOS students, but also the home to student Personalized Learning Plans and crucial learning data. The data collected from student time logs is a vital resource in assessing student projects while also holding them accountable for their daily habits and production. Staff learned early that Project Foundry is a valuable tool that needs to be at the heart of personalized and project-based learning.
"TAGOS being a part of the Project Foundry Network is valuable to our staff and students as it provides unlimited resources for our school to improve and our students to succeed. The network of educators working together, to not only use Project Foundry, but to build Project Foundry, has helped us to learn and grow at a faster pace as individuals and as a school." - Nic Manogue of TAGOS
