Freeport School District 145Personalized Mastery

Traditional Model of Schooling

Everything revolves around the calendar

Time is the Constant

calendar

9 months 174 days to learn

Semester classes

Spelling words given on MondaySpelling words given on Monday on Friday, the test

One size fits all expect all children to be able to learn at the same rate

15

Traditional Model of Schooling

Learning is the Variable

A, B, C, D, F

The System gives students permission to advance with only partial understanding

The System gives us permission to advance to the next topic/unit knowing that some students do not fully understand.

Imagine a New Improved Educational Model

Time becomes the VariableEach student is given theEach student is given the right amount of time to learn

They move at their own paceSome students need more timeSome students need less timeSome students need less time

Imagine a New Improved Educational Model

Learning becomes the Constant

No more failures Proficiency becomes the expectation

Pre-assessments discover what the student knows and what they dont know

Focus on what they dont

Imagine a New Improved Educational Model

Students become partners in their learningtheir learning

They know what is expected (standards are transparent)

They track their learning They move at their own pace They share the responsibility They utilize appropriate
