Marcia L. Tate, EdD, provides workshops that focus on brain-based learning. Mount Prospect Academy is proud to bring her to New Hampshire as part of a workshop, not just for our teachers, but for teachers and leaders from all over New Hampshire. The purpose of the workshop will be to learn strategies to engage students to increase their learning and to learn how to assess if they learned what you wanted them to learn. This concept ties directly into increasing students’ skills in reading, writing and math. Read more about our workshop below:
Formative Assessment in a Brain-compatible Classroom: How Do We Really Know They’re Learning? If you are waiting until after you have planned your lesson to determine how you will assess it, you are already too late! Instead, as soon as you have decided what you want students to know or be able to do, you need to define how you will know when they get there. Furthermore, for your assessment to be as effective as possible, you must take into account the different ways of learning and knowing that students have (often called “multiple intelligences” or “gifts”). This highly engaging workshop will deal with both traditional and more authentic forms for assessing learning in order to best enable a student’s success in their college or career path. You will leave this session with over 50 products and performances to help you know if they are learning, as well as the methods (i.e., checklists and rubrics) for assessing them. This workshop has been called practical, informative, and a great deal of fun!
