Co-constructing Success Criteria Workshop

with Mary Jane O'Connell and Kara Vandas

Co-Constructing Success Criteria Workshop

Corwin’s new Co-constructing Success Criteria workshop is available in a one-day format, with the option for additional support days. This highly engaging, hands-on workshop will provide educators with the methodology to co-construct criteria with students, giving them a voice and deep understanding of how to meet the learning intentions.  As a result, students will be able to confidently answer:  Where am I going?, How am I doing?, and Where to next? (Hattie, 2011). In addition, students will be empowered to develop personalized learning goals and track their own progress toward their learning goals.

Coaching & Implementation Support

Co-constructing success criteria with students is like other effective teaching strategies in that it takes practice, trying different methods, asking for feedback from students, and adjustment to master.  For this reason, coaching is available to support educators as they work to implement this powerful practice into their classrooms.
