DESCRIPTION

This workshop will provide an overview of how teaching through a genre and text type lens helps students become more reflective about their reading and writing habits and enhances their awareness of the skills and strategies they use to deepen meaning and produce different forms of writing.

Assessing how students do this is an ongoing process that provides teachers with windows for informal and formal data collection. During this workshop, join our consultants as they discuss different ways to capture data and build profiles of students as readers, writers, and thinkers.

Topics for discussion:

  • Using the appendices in our units of study as assessment opportunities
  • Effective use of the Student Performance Checklists
  • Interpreting and using rubrics
  • Using the Readers' and Writers' Notebooks as a form of assessment
  • Getting the most out of "kid-watching"
  • Analyzing and comparing student drafts and published pieces
  • Using conversation as a form of assessment
  • Ways to learn more about your readers and writers

During the administrator session, learn more about how to encourage teachers to be data collectors in meaningful ways and how you can actively participate in the process of data analysis. Helping teachers develop consistent and sustainable practices with formative assessment will not only enhance instruction but also help you understand how well your teachers modify their instruction to meet the diverse needs of their students.
