At the J. Graham Brown School, students will develop their JCPS Graduate profile Success Skills, and grow as Self-Directed Learners (SDL) in order to help students attain key academic, cognitive, social, and self-management skills.
The Digital Backpack is a virtual space, or platform, where students will collect evidence of their JCPS Graduate profile Success Skill development. Each student will have a variety of learning artifacts every step of the way. Artifacts will include student reflections of the learning experience, and will be “tagged” to the Success Skills that most closely align to the work.
In addition, each student will be asked to defend his or her readiness at the key transition points of second grade, fifth grade, eighth grade, and graduation. Students will discuss and show their readiness to transition using evidence from their digital backpacks to a panel.
5th , 8th, and 12th grade students will present a culmination of their learning and growth to a panel consisting of Brown School staff, and community member volunteers.
