As we listen to those we are privileged to serve, our teachers, support staff and Instructional Leaders, we are excited to partner with Marian Small to support you, your students and your learning communities. In response to identified and expressed needs for the following components of Math, please consider the following professional learning opportunity: We all make choices in how we determine whether students have achieved the required curriculum outcomes. There are choices in whether the information is gathered through observation and conversation or performance tasks or paper and pencil tasks. There are choices in the balance of data gathered in terms of skills, understanding, and problem solving. We will consider advantages and disadvantages of different sources for data but will spend much of our time focused on what assessing understanding looks like.
ALL SESSIONS WILL BE RECORDED AND AVAILABLE TO REGISTERED PARTICIPANTS ONLY!!
This learning opportunity is being offered through a grant from Alberta Education.
