The workshop model of instruction provides a comprehensive structure that best supports learning according to the findings of cognitive science. The workshop model is an inclusionary approach, using a framework in which teachers can share focus lessons as well as provide guided, targeted instruction for small groups of students while other students build skills through purposeful, independent practice.
During this workshop, participants will dig into this differentiated learning time to consider how teachers can use data to plan and implement a balance of small group and independent work that will best meet the varied instructional needs of all of their students. Participants are encouraged to bring their own student data to use for planning purposes.
· review data to determine appropriate learning targets
· identify/create learning progressions
· investigate opportunities for small group instruction
· explore the process for individual conferences
· design a plan for differentiated instruction during workshop
