“My passionate belief is that we must hold an expansive view of education in order to recognize that building capacity within learners is equally, if not more, important than providing students with content knowledge. The Successful Learner Trait Framework offers teachers an opportunity to cultivate capacity within learners using curriculum content as the context in which to do so – a subtle, yet powerful, shift.” – Sue Bannister
