Marshall Road teachers are continuing to utilize strategies from Responsive Classroom.  Responsive Classroom is a research-based approach to teaching that focuses on the strong link between academic success and social-emotional skills.  Click here to view a short but informative video clip introducing Responsive Classroom.

To learn more about the approach as it is taken at Marshall Road Elementary, please visit this page.  At the January 2016 PTA meeting, first grade teacher Ms. Gomes spoke on Responsive Classroom techniques and practices at school and home; you can view her presentation to learn more.



Project-Based Learning (PBL)

Marshall Road teachers are beginning to introduce Project-Based Learning (PBL) into their classrooms as a means to better engage students and develop their critical thinking skills.  At the January 2017 PTA meeting, fourth grade teacher Ms. Kraus spoke on Project-Based Learning methods and provided examples of how it is being implemented at school; you can view her presentation to learn more.



Positivity Project 

Marshall Road uses the Positivity Project to help build relationships between students, teachers and the community. Why relationships? Because they are the cornerstone of health, happiness, and resilience…and (according to experts) many jobs of the future. That is why the Project developed a strategy that schools use to inspire positive relationships (student-to-student and student-to-teacher) and cultivate a school-wide #OtherPeopleMatter Mindset.
