Well defined Learner Outcomes are a key feature to Mason’s model of Personalized Learning. Alongside traditional content standards handed to us from ODE and other bodies, we are elevating skills and mindsets for learning to round out our Learner Outcomes. You may ask “which skills and mindsets are we using?” Check out these links below:
- Check out the 16 Habits of Mind (link) we are elevating to the same level as content skills.
- Allison Zmuda has curated a great list of resources (link) for teaching for Habits of Mind on her website.
- The Habits of Mind institute (link), founded by Allison’s co-author Bena Kallick has worked on these skills for years.
