Mr. Brian Patrick

The Willoughby-Eastlake School of Innovation (WESOI) is a platform school that infuses STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) curriculum and instructional practices with a focus on rigorous Design Focused Learning™ beginning in 3rd grade. Designed Focused Learning™ means that students and teachers are co-designers of the work.
The students are engaged in solving problems and developing skills through process-based learning opportunities. Teaching and learning are still centered around grade level standards while students work collaboratively across grade levels and disciplines.
Our community has taken the lead in bringing this to younger children and we hope to share this model with others!
