Revised Assessment in Action – April 20th – Churchill

This event has been changed and scaled down.

Unfortunately the number of teachers who have signed up does not justify the cost of having Judy & Linda come & present.

Fortunately I am very familiar with their work (and am working closely with them) and am comfortable leading a smaller session.  The session will incorporate the following:

    • Key Questions for Learner Engagement (with a brief research background)
    • Overview & Examples of Six Strategies that Support Learner Engagement
    • Time for reading & discussions short articles related to the above.

If you are interested, a small number of teachers (mostly secondary) will be meeting at Churchill Secondary on the morning of April 20th (room TBA).  We will start at 9:00 AM and finish around 11:30 AM.  Please send me a short email or text message if you plan to attend.

learning model that embeds agrowth mindset into our practices and shifts us towards a stronger learning orientation in our secondary classrooms.  Once again we will be using the David Thompson Secondary cafeteria for our learning space.

They will start us off with a review of:

  • Three (+1) Key Questions For Learner Engagement
  • Six Strategies that Support Learner Engagement
  • The work of teachers in BC (and where we sit in an international context)

During morning participants will have opportunities to:

  • Choose, read and discuss a short article about one of the six strategies.
  • Collaborate in subject groups around ways better supporting student learning.
  • Share examples and experiences, particularly ones that are new since Feb 17th.
  • Talk one-on-one with Judy and/or Linda.
