The Impacts of a School-Wide Approach to ‘Deeper Learning’

A new study by American Institutes for Research (AIR) researchers Jordan Rickles and Kristina Zeiser examines the effects of a school-wide focus on deeper learning in 16 U.S. high schools.

They join CPRE Knowledge Hub managing editor Keith Heumiller to discuss their findings, which include significant positive impacts on post-secondary enrollment, interpersonal skills, and academic outcomes.

Rickles and Zeiser also offer some key takeaways for school leaders, teachers, and policymakers hoping to understand and promote deeper learning in their own schools.
