Earlier this week, Oxford's Bodleian Library announced that it had digitized a 550 year old copy of the Gutenberg Bible along with a number of other ancient bibles, some of them quite beautiful. Not to be outdone, the British Library came out with its own announcement on Thursday:
Competency-based learning, often called mastery-learning, at its core involves five elements:
Students advance when they master the content and skills, not because they squeaked by with a C or a D grade.Transparency about where students stand empowers them and enables educators to better tailor instruction to their individual needs.Assessment is a continual part of the learning cycle, not a final judgment at a time when a student has no hope of changing the outcome.Educators offer timely support, often daily, on any part of the required material.Students must be able to demonstrate that they can transfer their knowledge to new contexts, applying skills to challenges they’ve never seen before. This often means developing life-long habits of learning.
Usually, when we say “American slavery” or the “American slave trade,” we mean the American colonies or, later, the United States. But as we discussed in Episode 2 of Slate’s History of American Slavery Academy, relative to the entire slave trade, North America was a bit player. From the trade’s...

Teachers must read the standards and plan their lessons to facilitate how each individual student will learn and work towards his or her goals by the end of the year. The way that school leaders interpret the reading standards largely determines the kind of learning environments teachers are able to create to support the Common Core.
Also: "The case for more play in today’s kindergarten classroom is legitimate, and school leaders need to know that there is a way to integrate intentional play back into the classroom while teaching the high-level literacy skills that are found in the Common Core. Play is so important, particularly for young children, to develop long-term cognitive skills that will enable students to become “college and career ready”, in the long-term. Principals must be convinced that a print-rich kindergarten classroom that fosters language and literacy development is possible through play, rather than primarily through direct instruction."
