• What are the ways that we can engage our learners in active, meaningful learning?


• How can we structure learning experiences so that instruction, learning, and assessment are integrated?


• How do we ensure balance and appropriateness in the design, selection, and use of a wide range of classroom assessment tools?

The structure of the learning experience is based on Paula Rutherford’s use of oval to describe unit planning- clarity about expected learning, articulated criteria for success and active, meaningful learning experiences for students. The resource text Instruction for All will be provided.

Elements from ITIP are incorporated. Additional coaching support will be available to participants at no additional cost which will be discussed during the training.
