Underpinnings of her program

Manta: educate and encourage and empower girls. We do use it like a mission statement although it isn't one for us. We are using it for a framework for teaching notetaking

Another underpinning is the AASL 21st century learning standards.

Used the terminology to send out to parents in the monthly newsletter!

Pat Basset wrote a letter in Independent Schools and we used it to create some Paradigm Shifts:

move from teaching to learning....
20th cent finite and knowable
21st exexpandable so 21st cent homework....skills skills skills....useless to us!!!

The system that works for us is that the girls is at the center, ....too fast....

working on a child center scheme to plan curriculum.
