The Dalton Plan

Assignment in The Middle School

Assignment in The Middle School

The Assignment provides an organized plan for teaching and learning. When Assignments are presented and discussed in any discipline, teachers help students identify what skills are needed to complete the various tasks, where the resources might be located to research a topic or advance a level of learning, and what timetable should be followed to meet the expectations of the Assignment. As students progress through the grades, Assignments increase in complexity and grow to encompass up to six-week units, providing greater opportunities for students to select options for learning within each assigned topic and area.
