About the Session

Does that stack of written assignments sitting on your desk ever get smaller? It can if you’re able to understand how to connect sound assessment practice through the lens of fostering student efficacy. In this session, participants will explore: -principles of intentional lesson and unit design to maximize opportunities for formative assessments, -sound assessment practices that will position students to be at the centre of the learning process, -classroom processes that will empower students to have a clear understanding of how to self-assess, reflect and improve their ability to navigate through learning goals. Spend less time grading summatively and more time looking at student work formatively to inform your practice. You’ll leave this session with practical ideas and manageable processes for your English Language Arts classes to motivate students in becoming active learners!
