Reimagining Career and College Readiness: STEM, Rigor, and Equity
Sammamish High School is a comprehensive neighborhood school serving a diverse group of 1,000 students in a suburb of Seattle. Over the last five years the school has undergone a renewal process by cultivating teacher leadership and community partnerships. Teachers have been developing problem-based learning curriculum (PBL) in order to deepen learning, teach 21st century skills, and increase college and career readiness. PBL at Sammamish is defined by seven key elements: authentic problems, authentic assessments, student voice, culturally responsive instruction, developing expertise, academic discourse, and collaboration. With a shift towards this new pedagogy came an increased need for technology access. In the fall of 2014 all Sammamish students were given a hybrid PC with digital ink and OneNote Class Notebooks. The 1-to-1 program with software like OneNote has become an integral part of teaching and learning because it facilitates student collaboration, provides increased opportunities for differentiation of instruction, and increases the quality and quantity of feedback.
