The Successful Learner Trait Framework

The Successful Learner Trait Framework prioritizes competency based education using eight Traits identified by over 1000 teachers. The philosophical foundation of the The Framework recognizes students’ success as a product of how-they-apply-themselves, rather than what-they-know. The use of the Framework is based upon a key shift of prioritizing competencies within all learning using the Traits to explicitly teach students what leads to success.

 

  • founded on a broad base of research
  • aligned with the BC Education statements of mission and Core Competencies
  • conveyed to students in a way that is accessible and meaningful
  • implemented using Assessment for Learning strategies and applied throughout the entire cycle of teaching, assessment and reporting

An expansive view about the possibility of education recognizes that building capacity or competencies within learners is equally, if not more, important than providing students with knowledge and skills in the content areas. The Successful Learner Framework offers teachers an opportunity to foster capacity within learners using curriculum content as the context in which to do so – a subtle, yet powerful, shift.
