#RethinkCurriculum: A Model That Increases Learners’ Engagement and Success with High-Quality, Culturally-Relevant, Competency-Based Learning Experiences

Breakout Session - October 25, 2021 | 3:40-4:00pm ET

Access to engaging learning materials that develop key competencies and critical consciousness, alongside a profound connection to community, is particularly scarce for a significant majority of learners. This session presents a new curriculum model that addresses this inequity, supporting learners as they undertake deep, self-directed learning that works in remote, hybrid, or in-person contexts.

Session Learning Outcomes:

  1. Explore a future-looking reimagining of the K-12 Scope and Sequence.
  2. Examine a prototype for a new approach to curriculum design that provides access to engaging, competency-based, and relevant learning experiences.
  3. Explore the three tenets of learner-centered curriculum: rigor, relevance, and agency.
