Growth Through Connections

Build deep relationship with students to foster success

SCHOOLS ACROSS THE COUNTRY ARE BEING CHALLENGED TO IMPLEMENT HIGHER ACADEMIC STANDARDS AND INCREASE SCORES ON MORE RIGOROUS STANDARDIZED STATE TESTS.   

In examining the characteristics of schools that have made significant gains in student achievement, researchers have verified what most educators already know to be true: the quality of the relationships within a school community makes a big difference. Although a seemingly obvious insight, building deep and authentic relationships with students is not always easy, especially when educators and learners have not shared similar life experiences.

Growth Through Connections helps educators build strong relationships with their students and provide them with engaging, culturally relevant learning experiences aligned to Colorado’s academic standards. Participants in Growth Through Connections identify, unpack and address their biases and other barriers that prevent them from connecting with each student, and develop strategies to creating rigorous, culturally relevant learning experiences that foster of a love for learning each day.
