Inspired Learning

In traditional academic settings, the learning triangle emphasizes a primary connection of Teacher to Subject that determines the third vertex - the Student. At Hyde, we strive to focus on the relationship between the Teacher to the Student as they explore the Subject togetherThe educational focus shifts from the subject to the student. When the Learning Triangle is working, the teacher becomes more of a coach than a professor and the student becomes more of an initiator than a follower. 


This week, we gathered as a school to recognize those students who inspired with us their efforts and excellence in the academic subject areas as well as those students who showed improvement in learning efforts both in and outside of the classroom. Students were nominated, and each teacher wrote a short blurb to highlight their work. An example of this writing:


Senior Excellence in Learning (English)

This student was an exemplary student in the fall term of English 12. He is diligent, always prepared for class, and asks clarifying questions that benefit his fellow students who may be too shy to speak up. He is an insightful reader, and his writing is strong. Most of all, he wants to learn. As a result, he has profited from all constructive criticism and is showing signs that he will grow into a first-rate writer. Well deserved, Sam Bergeron '23 is our Senior Excellence in English.  M.A. Edsall


There was excitement under the chandelier as we heard the names of returning and new students in these categories, and each recipient was cheered with enthusiasm. We look forward to seeing more growth in the second trimester and hope this ceremony helped inspired everyone to test themselves in the classroom!
