Personal Learning Plans

Personal Learning Plans (PLPs) are developed jointly as a partnership between student, family and teacher in order to identify a student’s academic strengths and areas of focus, multiple intelligences, interests and abilities. Strategies are planned to enhance or help to improve their academic and non-academic growth and development.

Middle School students’ Personal Learning Plans (PLPs) are developed and implemented through Project Based Learning (PBL) and self-selected interest driven electives.

Academic strengths and weaknesses are obtained by evaluating numerous formal sources of information such as NJASK (New Jersey Assessment of Skills and Knowledge) and/or PARCC (The Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers) results, multiple intelligence assessments (Gardner’s Multiple Intelligence Inventory), DRA (Diagnostic Reading Assessment) results, and interest inventories.

Additional anecdotal information is obtained from parent and student surveys. After collection of the data, students evaluate the assessment and target areas that they choose to address. They develop projects in coordination with teachers, including strategies to produce desired outcomes. A rubric is developed for each project to allow student participation, ongoing reflection and final assessment.
