Assessment in Action – AfL Focus Day w/ Judy & Linda

Floating Stones - Martin Hill

Linda & Judy will spend an interactive day with us on February 17th as we explore a learning model that embeds a growth mindset into our practices and shifts us towards stronger learning orientation in our classrooms.

They will start us off with a keynote presentation that:

  • Introduces Three (+1) Key Questions For Learner Engagement
  • Describes Learning Models that Support Learner Engagement
  • Shows how the work of teachers in BC is situated in an international context

During the second part of the morning participants will have a choice of five teacher-led breakout sessions where a VSB teacher will share how they have begun to shift their practice in their subject area.  Sessions are planned for English, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies and Aboriginal Education.  Judy & Linda will be circulating during these sessions.

After lunch Judy & Linda will share their reflections from attending the breakout sessions.   As a group we will further develop aspects of our learning model.
