Assignment 1: Preparation for Creating Your Artifact
In the Quiz for Unit 1, you will be asked to respond to the following prompts. It’s fine for your responses to be a little rough. You might want to write your answers out in rough before submitting.
- Where your school or organization is now regarding CBE: Have people heard of it? Have there already been some experiments?
- Choose the stakeholder that will be the target audience for your conversation. This could be one person, like the superintendent of your school district, or a group of people, like your local educators’ book club.
- Think about what type of conversation you want to have. Do you want to have a serious talk with your assistant principal about doing a CBE-style experiment in your classroom? An informal chat with a co-worker about whether or not to do some CBE-related professional development this summer? Whatever it is, think about what your goal is.
If you’d like, share this assignment with someone in your school or organization. Sharing your work can help deepen your thinking about competency-based education and your context.
