Every student deserves a great teacher not by chance, but by design
What if someone slipped you a piece of paper listing the literacy practices that ensure students demonstrate more than a year’s worth of learning for a year spent in school? Would you keep the paper or throw it away? We think you’d keep it.
In this institute, speakers Douglas Fisher, Kristin Anderson, Laura Besser, Sonja Alexander, and Michael Smith show how using the right approach at the right time can help you more intentionally design classroom experiences that hit the surface, deep, and transfer phases of learning and more expertly see when a student is ready to dive from surface to deep. The alignment of high-impact literacy practices, as defined by Hattie’s seminal work, with phases of learning, will get you working smarter not harder. Join Douglas and Kristin as they address the Visible Learning research; its connections to surface, deep, and transfer learning as it relates to literacy strategies; and the tools for measuring the impact of visible learning for literacy.
Join the amazing lineup of speakers for all five days for just $848 per person. Spend the first four days with Douglas Fisher, Kristin Anderson, Laura Besser, and Sonja Alexander in the Making Literacy Visible Institute and spend the last day in an intensive Text Complexity Institute with Michael Smith. Both institutes can also be ticketed separately (Making Literacy Visible Institute at $499/person | Text Complexity Institute at $399/person).
