HARTFORD, CT – University High School of Science and Engineering, in partnership with the University of Hartford, is a magnet school that focuses on academic excellence and early transition to higher education, while developing responsible citizens who demonstrate healthy integration in a diverse society.
Caryn Baseler, the Instructional Coach, has organized a yearlong Professional Learning Community centered on The Art of Learning. The teachers, counselors, and administrators at the school will meet on a monthly basis to read and discuss the book with a goal of collaboration across grade levels and curricular areas. “Many of our students are very gifted and we are challenged to find ways for them to grow to their full potential within our classrooms. Often, these same bright students are very needy and fear being wrong. We would like to help them develop the understanding that being wrong is okay and can lead to greater understanding,” explains Baseler. “We hope to gain insight from The Art of Learning to help us as we continue to strive to reach every student.”
