The Grid Method Framework
The Grid Method is a student-centered, competency-based framework, created at the classroom level and designed to fit any teacher’s style, within any curriculum, in any classroom.
Most importantly, it was built to reach all students…not just some.
Explore The Grid Method Mastery Framework in the Teach Better Academy.
The Free Academy Course paints an overview of the framework, its design, and the effect on student growth and success.
The Full Academy Course Workshop Bundle provides Educators an in-depth deep dive into the framework - walking you through the design and implementation process with a detailed workbook. Conclude your course with a fully designed, student ready grid.
The "Building a Grid LIVE Series" was originally aired as a live production in 2021 with Grid Method creator Chad Ostrowski. During each session, he was joined by a classroom educator from 1:1 coaching and feedback. You can access each discussion in a FREE Course in the Academy.
