6. Unfinished Learning: How will we know where to begin?

Program: Monroe Accountability, Assessment & Reporting Services

Audience: Teacher Leader, Curriculum Leaders, Teachers, Instructional Coaches, Administrators

Dates: 7/21/2020

Starting Soon
Based on the necessary adjustments to instruction educators made throughout the spring of 2020, we know gaps in student knowledge are inevitable, and in the fall of 2020, instructional agility will be more important than ever. How are we going to know what skills, knowledge, and concepts students have learned and maintained in order to deliver Tier 1 instruction in September and to make instructional pivots as needed to continually move all students forward? There are many things to consider when making decisions about how best to gain evidence of what students know rather than what they don't know. The evidence yielded will be most meaningful to teams of teachers prepared to collaborate this summer to make decisions about how to best assess where students are in their path toward mastering the necessary learning that could have gone unfinished last school year. We have created this class to provide a structure to help guide teams of teachers as they begin this important work. We will model what questions teams might think about and what collective agreements can be reached. Participants will leave with a presentation ready tool, resources, examples, guiding questions and materials to use when working with teacher teams back in their districts. *This session is a repeat from that on July 14th. It will also be repeated next week*
