Assessment: How Do We Know They’re Learning

About This Course

It stands to reason that if students are not learning from the way they are being taught, then teachers must teach them the way they learn. Whether participants refer to them as multiple intelligences, like Howard Gardner, or to them as gifts, like Marcia Tate, students come to class with many different ways of learning.

Experience 20 brain-compatible strategies for unwrapping those gifts, such as role play, drawing, music, or movement. To help identify whether or not these strategies are effective, participants also experience over 50 ways (including the use of products and performances) to determine if those strategies are making a difference in student achievement.

This workshop deals with both traditional and more authentic forms of assessment, since both forms should be included in a student’s overall portfolio.
