Creating a Do-able System for Acting on Real-Time Learning Feedback and Workable Interventions-Day 1
Facilitated by: Pam Chomsky-Higgins, Literacy Consultant
Date: June 26, 2018
Hours: 8:30 registration 9:00-3:30 light breakfast and lunch included)(6 hours recertification hours)
Target Audience: Grades K-5 Classroom Teachers & Special Educators
In this day-long session we will investigate multiple ways to integrate assessment with instruction in a variety of ways. Instead of stopping instruction to do assessments (unit tests, SBAC, etc.), we will explore ways to embed assessment within instruction. The assessment information that we will collect will give immediate feedback on our instruction and give valuable information on “next steps”.
· Review the various types of assessments and their uses regarding reading instruction
· Explore this model of embedding assessment into instruction
· Consider this model within the current year-long assessment plan that each educator works with
· Make a plan for implementing some of these embedded assessment tasks at the beginning of the next school year
· Explore possibilities for capturing student learning
· Create instructional plans for groups of students.
There will be a second (and possibly third) session on this topic in October 2018. During that session participants will bring student work (record of oral reading; sight word lists, samples of student writing, etc.) We will use these artifacts to make decisions about next instructional moves for different groups of students. How much reteaching is needed for how many students?
We will share strategies for capturing student work, including their gains as well as their next steps.
Materials will be included.
