VTLFF Youth-Adult Partnership Rubrics: A School Self-Assessment Tool for Dialog and Change
that the educational environment should reflect principles of social justice and environmental sustainability, and that schools should be joyful places for young people. Twenty-first-century learning should empower young people with voice and choice in their learning.
To achieve this goal, we have developed a set of research-based guidelines on best practices, with associated rubrics designed to support the movement toward a strong, personalized learning environment in which youth and adults enjoy collaborative relationships. This should not be considered a comprehensive set of indicators, but a work in progress to which you are invited to provide feedback and suggestions that will aid other educators in making these necessary changes.
We hope that you find this a useful tool in the self-assessment of your progress toward these goals!
