Time: 9am - 11:00am (daily)
Location: Zoom link to be emailed upon registration
Target audience: New and experienced teachers
In this Summer Academy, we will explore critical elements of developing and embedding formative assessment practices throughout daily instruction. Participants will explore core topics such as:
How can we plan to effectively collect and use evidence of learning that aligns with our learning goals for instruction?
How can we strategically design our questioning to support high levels of student cognition? How can we provide feedback that helps learners develop independent success?
How can we use self and peer feedback reflection tools to support student growth and goal setting?
How can we create a culture of assessment within our classrooms that embraces mistakes, supports students to take risks and take ownership of their learning?
