Belmont Ridge Middle School in Loudoun County is in the midst of testing a curriculum where students work at their own pace and sit on couches in class!

You may look at Belmont Ridge Middle School seventh grade teacher Jason Augustowski's language arts class and see a bunch of couch potatoes, but that's not the case.

The experiment will be assessed at the end of this marking period and could be expanded to other classes if it proves to help students learn.
