When is it Best to Teach to the Test?

Thursday, February 12, 2015 - 3:30pm


Watch Jim's Archived Webinar

Jim Burke’s webinar will explore ways that we can all prepare our students for the upcoming Common Core Assessments without interrupting or undermining our daily instruction. At the heart of this webinar and approach is the idea, grounded in the research of leading scholars such as Judith Langer, that students learn best when assessment and related preparation are integrated into our daily instruction as a means of enriching and extending that instruction. Participants will see examples of how to incorporate the Common Core State Standards into assessments of writing, reading, and more specific elements of the curriculum such as argument.
