School’s out, summer’s begun, and you find yourself looking for reading materials for the beach, a lazy summer afternoon on the deck, or for that long ride to visit family this summer. We’ve got you covered! Here is our “MTC Five” list for you.
After 125 years, it’s time to reimagine the high school curriculum for the 21st century and to encourage teaching and assessment of the skills and dispositions that matter most. Our students deserve a more accurate measure, and they shouldn’t have to wait another century for their transcripts to better reflect their accomplishments.
“We arrived excited about the possibilities that MTC offers, and left not only encouraged, but inspired by the collective potential of the thinkers and educators in the room,” wrote two educators from an MTC member school, after attending our recent Site Director meeting.
During a recent MTC Advisory Council meeting in Houston, a panel of four Site Directors from MTC member schools, who are preparing to pilot the Mastery Transcript in 2019-2020, shared insights from their journeys to mastery learning and feedback about early interactions with the Mastery Transcript prototype.
“The Mastery Transcript can help us even better identify the students who are really going to light this place up,” said Liz Cheron, dean of admissions at Northeastern University.
Michelle Lyon, assistant head of school at MTC member school Parish Episcopal High School, shares how the school community transformed the way it was “doing school.” For your school’s toolkit, Lyon also shares journey maps that showcase the change process for student engagement and teaching and learning.
