In coordination with our friends at the Independent Curriculum Group
Offered: October 9 - November 2, 2018
Is your school struggling with the best way to offer high level advanced courses that:
Beyond: Preparing Your School for the Journey to Independent Advanced Curriculum, offered by One Schoolhouse and the ICG, provides schools with a toolbox for developing and promoting indigenous advanced learning experiences built around their own missions and values and designed for their own student bodies. Drawing on learnings from schools already committed to “independent advanced curriculum,” the course will address the academic and pedagogical aspects of creating and sustaining advanced coursework and assessments in all disciplines as well as effective strategies for communicating about such coursework to key external audiences, including college admission offices and prospective community members
During this program, participants will spend approximately four hours on coursework for each unit and can set their own pace each week. Coursework and assignments for each unit open on Monday morning, and should be completed by the following Sunday evening. Participants will connect and collaborate with each other through several forms of interactive media, including short videos, and discussion boards. Classes are conducted asynchronously, and there is an opportunity to connect synchronously at the end of the course (this session will be recorded for those unable to attend live).
