The Power of Culturally Responsive Mastery Practices

Join the Mastery Collaborative for an active session to explore how culturally responsive education (CRE) and mastery-based teaching and learning together can empower students to own their learning, foster positive mindsets for learning (growth, value, and belonging mindsets), encourage learners to focus more on their learning than on grades, and scaffold each learner—even in a large class—to get to the next level of mastery of key skills and knowledge they need for success.

Presenters will use speed-round conversations, short videos, and collaborative discussions to delve into identifying shortcomings and possibilities, and participants will see how mastery and CRE can give learning more focus, context, traction, responsiveness, and relevance. Participants will explore the field of CRE and its three main elements, learn about mastery-based teaching and learning and its key shifts, and apply CRE and mastery shifts to create innovations that benefit and empower learners. They will leave with new awareness and new strategies/tools for enriching and focusing teaching and learning by using mastery and CRE.
