Foreword by Chris Sturgis

Shifting to a competency-based curriculum allows educators to revolutionize education by replacing traditional, ineffective systems with a personalized, learner-centered approach. Throughout the resource, the authors explore how the components of PLCs promote the principles of competency-based education and share real-world examples from practitioners who have made the transition to learner-centered teaching. Each chapter ends with reflection questions readers can answer to apply their own learning progression.

By reading this book, K-12 administrators, school leaders, and teacher leaders will:

  • Evaluate the qualities of true competency-based schools and the flaws in traditional schooling.
  • Consider the foundational role that PLCs have in establishing the competency-based approach and promoting learning for all.
  • Gain tips for successfully implementing student-centered practices for learning competencies and performance assessment and grading.
  • Explore real school experiences that highlight the processes and challenges involved in moving from traditional to competency-based school structures
  • Access reproducible school-design rubrics appropriate for the five design principles of competency-based learning.
