Chapter 6 discusses the philosophies behind High Tech High, The Met, and Francis Parker Charter Essential School. If I could choose to teach at one of these schools, I would enjoy teaching at Francis Parker Charter Essential School. I especially admire their motto of “Less is More” and “Student as Worker, Teacher as Coach”. Francis Parker Charter Essential School believes that students would benefit from learning content more in depth rather than covering a lot of content briefly. I strongly agree and have seen this work at my current school site. Students are working on Investigations where they are covering content extremely in-depth and as a result have a stronger foundation, which in turn benefits them when they encounter new content. Francis Parker Charter Essential School has a philosophy that students should do the work and the teacher should facilitate. Similarly, I have seen this at work at my current school site because we implement plenty of group tasks where students work together while I facilitate the room and assess their understanding of the content by either listening in on conversations or asking clarifying questions. I personally believe that the same intellectual goals should apply to all students and that is exactly what Francis Parker Charter Essential School implements in their school. Francis Parker Charter Essential School does not track students and have “honors” classes and I have read plenty of research that tracking does not benefit students. Therefore, I believe that all students should be held accountable for the same intellectual goals. One aspect that I admire from Francis Parker Charter Essential School that my current school site does not have is personalization! We have so many students on campus that it is difficult for teachers to be familiar with all the students. Therefore, I make an effort to get to know as many students as I can by interacting with Math Club, Math Circles, and other sport related activities. The values that Francis Parker Charter Essential School stands for are values that are aligned with my teaching philosophy, especially democracy and equity.
