Competency-Based Education: A New Architecture for K-12 Schooling A Virtual Book Study


Thursday, June 11, 4:00pm – 5:00pm


Online- Zoom Connection


This virtual book study will meet via Zoom from 4:00-5:00 on June 11, 18, 25, and July 2, 9, and 16. If you can't make a session, no worries! A recording will be posted for you to watch and respond to. Or, a time can be arranged for you to meet with Tanya individually or in a small group.

Now, more than ever, is the right time to reflect upon our learning and grading practices. Competency-Based Education by Rose L. Colby (2019) shows educators a new model for anytime, anywhere education and provides tools and curriculum resources for redesigning the traditional K–12 school system. Join us as we learn how to make performance tasks, individual learning plans, and grading systems to meet the needs and interests of all students. 

Participants will need to purchase the book, the IBSN is 978-1682531006. At the end of the course, participants earning college credit will write a summary/action plan.
