Instructional Model

At Kavod, we believe that the child must be the center of all learning.

It is a rigorous and challenging, yet affirming, educational model that consists of the following components:

Rotating Schedule: As children all learn best at different times of the day, Kavod implements a rotating schedule that allows students to learn each subject at the time of the day when they learn best.

Growth Mind-Set: Kavod encourages students to recognize that learning is a process and that mistakes are a part of that process. Embedded into our program are strategies that help students overcome challenges and explore new ideas.

 Mindfulness: Kavod encourages students to be engaged in their learning process by implementing mindfulness, meditation and even yoga strategies and activities into their daily routine.

We use the “workshop model” in order to make sure that each and every student is highly engaged and is working on materials appropriate to their specific proficiency level. The teachers circulate throughout the room to work with students in small groups and individually. Over the past decade, the workshop model has been documented as one of the most effective instructional models.

In the elementary grades there are frequently two qualified instructors in the classes to support with differentiation.

Moving into Middle School, Kavod has aligned our structure to the International Baccalaureate model. The application for Kavod to become an IB school was recently submitted.
