The Dalton Plan

Assignment in The High School

Assignment in High School

Central to the pedagogy of the High School is the Assignment. In all courses, teachers design Assignments to cover four to six weeks of work. The Assignment includes an introduction to the unit of study written by the teacher, suggestions regarding resources for acquiring further knowledge of the subject, and a work plan, which specifies required course work and culminating projects and assessments. Projects provide choices and vary in their academic demands. The Assignment teaches students to use time effectively and allows for the tailoring of classwork and homework to meet students’ individual needs and develop their strengths.
