Sarah Brown Wessling remarks; â€œIt is not about ways of delivering content as much as it is about ways of getting students to become thinkers; ways for students to be more autonomous.â€
- What evidence did you observe in Ms Wesslingâ€™s video that her students were becoming thinkers?
- How is this an example of the teacher assessing FOR learning?
In Dylan Williamâ€™s video on embedded formative assessments, he mentions five strategies for teachers to meet studentsâ€™ learning needs more effectively.
- Describe what you observed from Ms. Wesslingâ€™s video that represents each of these strategies.
- Were there any that you did not observe?
- What evidence was there of Ms. Wesslingâ€™s students examining their own thinking?
- What evidence did you find to suggest she designed her instruction to meet instructional learning objectives in several areas of development (Think Bloomâ€™s)?
- What did you see from her video that youâ€™d like to try (remember best practices are transferrable across grade and age levels)?
