Students must complete “gateway assignments” which encourage the student to demonstrate their learning successes in a meaningful way.The exercises allow students to show their understanding by producing actual work that relates to the real world of the student—an essay, a lab report, a presentation, a portfolio, a drawing, a song or some other demonstration of competency.
Gateway activities give students the chance to go deeper into their learning. It also gives them opportunities for ownership of their studies and their activities. They get to know their content deeply, but they also get to activate their minds—which will last a lifetime.
