With Dr. Doug Fisher, Dr. Nancy Frey, Dr. Dominique Smith.
October 3 and 10, November 8 and 15, December 5 and 12.
Imagine students who OWN their learning in these terms: “I know where I’m going, I have the tools I need for the journey, and I monitor my own progress.” Now think about the extraordinary difference this type of ownership makes in students’ progress over the course of a school year. The Visible Learning research is clear that when students know how to learn and are aware of strategies to help them learn, they are able to become their own teachers. If there is one core message in this webinar series that we want you to come away with, it is this: Assessment-capable visible learners are cultivated by assessment-capable teachers.
In this webinar series, three of the nation’s leading literacy experts Doug Fisher, Nancy Frey, and Dominique Smith will share:
- The most effective types of assessment and how each can motivate students to higher levels of achievement
- How to introduce students to the tools they will use to support their own learning, along with the know-how they need to choose the right tool for any learning challenge
- How to create a classroom culture where errors are viewed as opportunities to learn
- The learning strategies, including cognitive, metacognitive, and motivational strategies, that fuel student progress, and how to give students opportunities to use them
The six sessions of this webinar series are designed to take a deep dive into creating the conditions that foster assessment-capable visible learners.
