YATST fosters engagement in learning by increasing rigor, relevance, relationships, and shared responsibility (the 4 “Rs”) in educational settings. This is the research-based framework for learning, engagement, and school transformation.
Schools are supported through high-impact facilitation on-site and off-site coaching, facilitation training, resource development, documentation and evaluation, and development of a professional learning community.
In YATST, we use Participatory ACTION Research (PAR) to understand issues that we care about from multiple perspectives. Through PAR, we gather insight and ideas from others that are interested in the same issue and invite them to participate in what we care about.
