Tue Session 3 [clear filter]
Tuesday, May 23

11:30am EDT

Choose Your Own Adventure: Flexible Pathways in Proficiency-Based Learning.
Student voice and choice guide what, and how, we explore content with use of the negotiated curriculum and student planning committee models. The mantra? Curriculum is a conversation, not a mandate. Practicing and applying transferable skills to content has become the mode of communicating student growth. This results in more feedback, less grading. A student panel will share their perspective from this year's units, including "Election 2016", "You Say You Want A Revolution!", and more. 

In short: A teacher should not monopolize planning curricular content. With valuable and practical transferable skills at the core of learning, the content is interchangeable. Therefore, students should be involved with every level of planning and engaging with content.

Q+A, discussion, and conversation will be built into this presentation.
