Rodriguez Elementary and Socially Mediated Learning
My principal has done a fantastic job of displaying socially mediated learning at my campus. She has brought a number of volunteer and paid mentors. Our literacy and math coaches work with the students on a consistant basis. In addition, college students from the local university aid in helping our students too. We support a reading PALS group that comes wekly in addition to parent volunteers. Although my campus is low socio-econmic you would never know by the all hands on deck approach.
She also maintains a strict monitoring system that requires both students and teachers to become accountable for their hard work or lack of. This gives the faculty a weekly check-in system.
