Big Picture Learning School Distinguishers

Big Picture Learning schools are unique environments where students can flourish as individuals within a community of learners. There are many elements within our learning design that are uncommon and distinct, and set Big Picture schools apart from most schools. We call these common characteristics ‘distinguishers’, as they distinguish the Big Picture Learning design from other learning designs or models.

Big Picture Learning’s School Distinguishers, listed below, exist as a comprehensive whole. They are interrelated and inform one another – none work in isolation. It is the seamless integration of reflection-based action and the distinguishers that result in the powerful success of the Big Picture Learning design.

The Ten Distinguishers are:

Learning In the Real World: LTI
One Student At A Time: Personalization
Authentic Assessment
School Organization
Advisory Structure
School Culture
Leadership
Parent/Family Engagement: Adult Support
School/College Partnership: College Preparation and Support
Professional Development
