The Center on School Turnaround at WestEd’s second webinar of its Journeys project, took place on Wednesday, March 19, from 11:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. Pacific Time (2:00 p.m. – 3:30 p.m. Eastern Time).
“There is growing interest in personalized and performance-based approaches to support student learning. Personalized Mastery (also known as competency-based learning) is one such approach, focusing on students moving through content at their own learning pace. [Participants will] learn about the early challenges in implementing personalized mastery as a school improvement strategy in a small-town middle school with a large achievement gap.
School, district, and state staff will share the steps taken on their initial journey to Personalized Mastery. Topics discussed will include Personalized Mastery as a possible school improvement strategy and an overview of the hopes and challenges of the early stages of implementation.”
