Grounded Learning

“Sound and equitable solutions from within the system will address the fragmentation and incongruence

producing wellbeing and prosperity in our lives and our communities.”

 * Dr. Ivy Bonk, Every Child Whole *



The Grounded Learning System and Framework are innovations created  in partnership with our non-profit affiliate, ReThink Learning.  Education should be about providing students with sound foundations on which to build their learning. I (Bonk) use an analogy in the book of a construction site. We would not build a house on a broken foundation or a foundation that is not level and expect the house to stand or support the weight of other adjoining parts.  In keeping with that analogy, Grounded Learning could be likened to the International Building Code (IBC).   You can customize your home, outfit it with the fanciest and newest “you name it”, but there are certain standards required to sustain the structure.

We are excited about supporting schools as they move forward through uncertainty with courage to build a better future for the students they serve.  To learn more about the key strategies, visit the links under GROUNDED LEARNING in the menu bar.  If you are not a school, but would like to support this effort and see how it aligns with your work, please reach out at info “at” everychildwhole.com, we would love to connect.
