EACH is different because of the meaning of personalization, individualization, and customization. EACH implies that we must take what is unique about every single student and use it to create a pathway to success. We must know who they are; where they come from; what their interest, passion, and genius are; what goals they set for themselves; and what they dream about for the future. Using what we know about EACH student will allow us to design opportunities and create experiences that give EACH student the necessary knowledge, skills, and dispositions to make it happen.
