How we work

We train and coach educators in our Emergent Teaching Methodology. It helps students take ownership of their learning, with proven strategies to:

  • Set ambitious goals in partnership with a teacher
  • Work backwards to plan out steps that lead to their goals
  • Use agility, collaboration, and ingenuity to design their daily learning experience

Why we work

We all know that school does not engage everyone equally. Emergent Teaching Methodology disrupts the current educational model to change that. Our goals are to increase equity in the classroom, support student-driven learning, and improve academic outcomes for less-privileged students. With the help of innovative educators, we help amplify students’ ingenuity so they reach their full potential.

Do teachers recommend us?

“Absolutely.”

 

It’s been a great opportunity for the students. I think what it does is give them resources to see beyond high school and think about their future careers. It broadens their world beyond their neighborhood. They’re changing the way they think, even beyond the classroom.

 

—Partner teacher

“Definitely.”

 

Most methodologies start with the assumption that students need to change their behaviors or learning styles. Rêve Academy is radically different in the assumption that youth start at amazing—and with additional tools, their possibilities become amazing.

 

—Partner teacher

“It’s a perfect fit.”

 

It’s a great way to give ownership of learning back to students and better prepare them for the world outside of school. It supports teachers to think different about their practice and how it enhances or hinders a pursuit of equity in the classroom.

Thoughtful alliances

We ask partner teachers to embrace these beliefs:

  • I want to amplify the excellence of my students
  • I will fight for the highest possible good in my students
