Personalized Learning
Extended application is the application of knowledge and skills in the context of the student’s personal and career interests and post-high school goals. Students use knowledge and skills to solve problems, create products, and make presentations in new and complex situations.

Extended application is based upon the principles of contextual teaching and learning and brain-based research. Extended application engages students in significant activities that help them connect academic studies to their context in real life situations. By making these connections students see meaning and relevance in their schoolwork.
