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. 

If you need help with your sched.org account, please contact Becky Vance, rvance@greatschoolspartnership.org.

The Struggle is Real!  Supporting High School Teachers and Departments to Put PBL into Action  

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

Transitioning to proficiency-based learning (PBL) may seem straightforward on paper, but getting there is hard!

In this workshop, presenters will share concrete tools, strategies, and examples that schools can use to build teacher capacity for implementing PBL in their classrooms and developing meaningful and usable graduation standards as teams. From a program that enables “early adopters” to build capacity in their colleagues, to in-house coaching and professional learning approaches, to templates that facilitate teachers’ development of proficiencies and their associated learning activities and assessments--this hands-on workshop will provide practical resources that participants can take back to their own schools. Presenters will describe their assets-based approach to helping teacher teams build on what they are already doing while shifting to proficiency-based content-area standards that emphasize transferable skills aligned with the Common Core and NGSS.

Participants will have a chance to try out and discuss some of these tools, and will walk away with access to all of the materials shared.
