Once upon a time, there was only one book, Delivering on the Promise, where you could find an explanation of competency-based education (although they didn’t call it that in Chugach). Now there are more resources than anyone can possibly read while still doing your day job. Below are a number of resources prepared for a panel on the Journey Towards Competency-Based Progressions with Jeremiah Newell, Mobile Area Education Foundation, Chip Linehan, Building 21, and Nate McClennen, Teton Science Schools, at the New Schools Venture Fund Summit. I always value the recommendations from practitioners and want to share them with others. I’ve also added the growing list of books on competency-based education as well.
