Checks for Understanding–Key Strategies for Learning Techniques, Nov. 6

Posted by The Center for Black Educator Development on November 5, 2019

The Center for Black Educator Development – Fall Professional learning Series

Have you ever graded an independent practice, exit slip, quiz, and/or homework and wondered what in the world happened?  One of THE best ways to know if students are on track to produce at a rigorous level is to use hard hitting checks for understanding AND to track this data along the way.  In this workshop, we will craft, revise, and practice several checks for understanding (e.g., white boards, student interviews).  We will also see some ways to track the data you get from checking for understanding, which can be a HUGE motivator for students.  (Please note: All School District of Philadelphia participants will receive ACT 48 credits for attending workshops hosted by The Center for Black Educator Development.)

When: November 6, 2019

Where: Mary McLeod Bethune School, 3301 Old York Rd., Philadelphia, PA (Room location: The IMC)
