Session Location:
Enmax Centre CWB Lounge 2510 Scenic Drive S, Lethbridge, AB
About the Session:

This session is open to all teachers K-12. While it builds upon the Foundation Day workshop, this Core Workshop illustrates important principles and related strategies for designing ongoing, formative assessments for conceptual understanding. These assessments, paired with positive feedback, are essential in providing information to both teacher and student about progress and insight into what to do next. Teachers will learn more in-depth strategies of facilitating learning transfer and draft another complete lesson series, along with formative assessments, to implement. 

Learning intentions:

  • Recognize and use the key building blocks of authentic assessments.
  • Harness the power of formative assessments in the learning journey.
  • Design lessons that build learning transfer.
K-12 Teachers, Superintendents, District Leads, School Administrators, Learning Leaders,and Educational Assistants who have previously attended a session with Julie Stern are encouraged to attend
