In this free webinar at 2:00 p.m. (PT)/5:00 p.m. (ET), prominent math educators Francis (Skip) Fennell, Linda Gojak, Ruth Harbin Miles, and John SanGiovanni team up to offer their unique perspectives on using formative assessment to inform your mathematics instruction in a way that is doable! Research shows that teachers who continuously assess student understanding, offer timely feedback, and use the data to make instructional choices have students who receive more than one year’s worth of learning in one year of instruction (Hattie, 2009). From their varied and deep experiences, these experts will:
Highlight why it’s so important to continuously assess where students are and where they need to go next;
Share methods for uncovering mathematical challenges, misconceptions and incomplete understanding;
Guide you in how to respond by planning your next instructional steps in a timely, flexible, and manageable way.
Every day, all day long, as you teach you are monitoring the progress of your students and guiding the development of their mathematical proficiency. You use formative assessment to inform what you do – that day and every day. Now learn how to do it in the most manageable, yet effective way possible.
