Capstone Project Title
The research question addressed in this project was, how to assist teachers and students in the creation and use of learner profiles to support struggling readers at the middle school level? It covers the topics of personalized learning, learner profiles and struggling readers. The project discusses components and elements of personalized learning as laid out by The Institute for Personalized Learning, while connecting the information to support for struggling readers. The core of the project is centered around learner profiles; what they are, information to include, as well as how to go about creating them. The project involves three parts, with the first part providing different tools teachers and students are able to use to begin creating learner profiles. The second part is professional development for teachers to help them understand what learner profiles are, how to use them, and how to work alongside students to create them. The third, and final part of the project, includes an introductory lesson for students on learner profiles, as well as what steps will be employed after learner profiles are created.
