ITEM:  Information and Resources from CompetencyWorks
Educators in competency-based schools have raised an important issue -  how to cover grade-level standards while meeting kids where they are in their learning, particularly when a student's performance is well below grade level. Chris Sturgis shares take-aways on this topic of meeting students where they are and addressing grade-level standards in a two-part blog series: Accountability Paradox<http://cl.s6.exct.net/?qs=086d15c6c0da9bb2d80edd2f90824278adcf1a380cc2d3e170c2dc9035055f22> and Academic Domains<http://cl.s6.exct.net/?qs=086d15c6c0da9bb27c0dec2646096ef4202591066fb3a0d3021bff32cf8dbc8c>. Do you know about a school that has developed strategies for meeting kids where they are? Does your district or school have effective practices to help kids build pre-requisite skills and grade-level standards? If so, please let us know<mailto:chris at metisnet.net>.
