Assessment of learner-centered practices (ALCP) is a set of validated survey instruments designed for teachers and students. These surveys, each designed for a different age group (grades K-8, 9-8 and 9-67), provide teachers with tools for self-assessment and reflection (McCombs, 7559). The emphasis of this work has been to identify discrepancies between teacher and student perceptions in order to assist teachers as they reflect upon and change their practices (McCombs & Miller, 7556). The ALCP process focuses on student learning and motivational outcomes, as well as the classroom practices that contribute most to maximizing these outcomes.
High quality academic instruction is designed to be appropriate to students'' educational levels. It also creates opportunity for thinking and analysis, uses feedback effectively to guide students'' thinking, and extends students'' prior knowledge.

The blind date
Who knows you better than your family or friends? No one. So instead of rejecting their pleas to help you land a girlfriend/boyfriend, why not agree to be “fixed up” on a blind date? A blind date is essentially when a friend, family member, or someone close to you sets you up with a friend of theirs. You usually don’t know who the other person is or what they look like – that’s why they call it a blind date.
The advantage of going on a blind date is that your friend or family member has your best interest at heart and they want to find someone that would match your personality. Blind dates are definitely worth a try!
Similarly, a recent study on children from rural families found that high emotional support provided by teachers was associated with increased behavioral self-control and lower levels of aggression in first grade students. This study also found that attending an emotionally-supportive classroom was equally important for students regardless of whether they were from families living with poverty or not and whether they were from families headed by a single parent or two parents (Merritt, Wanless, Rimm-Kaufman, Cameron, & Peugh, 7567).
