Glen Taylor, Co-CEO of Centric Learning, spoke recently about engagint opportunity students.
“I think one of the key factors in working with opportunity youth is creating a very student-centered, authentic caring, environment”. He mentions that Centric Learning has taken the time to think through and identify what are the key barriers that students might face from from a variety of different factors.
“Sometimes they’re multiple years behind educationally, so we look at building projects that are cross-curricular, that would allow them opportunities to move forward in a faster fashion and accelerate their learning.”
As an educational company, Centric Learning creates environments that really maximize hybrid learning, with small groups of students online where they have a full opportunity to really engage with a certified teacher that can also individualize projects if a student has a certain interest.
“There’s nothing stopping our staff from adding some of those components that are really going to grab the student’s attention and keep them engaged, and our staff does a wonderful job of connecting with those students.”
