MBK Challenge Spotlight: Concourse Village Elementary School

We featured this MBK Challenge spotlight in our February 2018 newsletter

While researching strategies to help students better access grade-level content, Concourse Village Elementary School (CVES) Principal Alexa Sorden discovered "Thinking Maps" (shown to the right), which support a learner-centered approach in the classroom. With help from MBK grants, Sorden and her staff re-envisioned their teaching methods and developed their own curriculum incorporating the Thinking Maps. The school-wide commitment to this approach has paid off, resulting in high proficiency scores and excellent student engagement.
