We are excited to try a new program to help you plan your experience at the 2016 NESSC High School Redesign in Action Conference. PLEASE NOTE: That all sessions are on a first-come, first-serve basis. Adding a session to your personal agenda does not ensure yourself a seat in the session, but rather a way to help you plan where to head.

From Principles to Practice: Making Meaning of the Ten Principles of Proficiency-Based Learning

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Proficiency-based learning can take a wide variety of forms from state to state, school to school, and even classroom to classroom. And yet, certain beliefs and practices tend to be held in common across even diverse proficiency-based learning systems. To better define this shared pedagogical foundation, upon which schools can build their proficiency-based learning work, the Great Schools Partnership created the “Ten Principles of Proficiency-Based Learning,” which describes the features found in the most effective proficiency-based systems.

But what do these principles look like in the classroom? How do teachers make them meaningful for themselves, students, and colleagues?

In this workshop, participants will examine specific, purposefully implemented practices that various teachers use in their mastery classrooms to bring the ten principles to life. Through this exploration, participants will deepen their understanding of how these practices, when used for purposefully, can have positive effects on student achievement. In small learning groups, participants will add to the presented collection of practices. They will be able to transport these concrete strategies back to their schools, with an understanding of how each supports at least one of the ten principles.
