Head of School Rachel Skiffer Featured on Homeroom with Sal

Collaborative Learning, Navigating Distance, + DEI

On Tuesday, June 23, Head of School Rachel Skiffer joined Khan Lab School Founder Sal Khan on Khan Academy's daily Homeroom with Sal series. Together via livestream, Rachel and Sal discussed collaborative learning, best practices during distance learning, and how to approach talking with children about current events. Khan Lab School's model, which prioritizes mastery-based academics, growth advising, and project-based learning in a mixed-age setting, fosters a collaborative learning environment different from the traditional approach to education. Rachel and Sal also offer ideas for approaching conversations with children who are trying to make sense of the world today, including topics like racism and the COVID-19 pandemic.
