SOWIC Academy Sessions 2020
Improve Behavior and Increase Learning
February 19, 2020
8:30 am - 11:30 pm
Learn strategies to help student respond rather than react. Reduce behavior problems that disrupt the learning process and increase the skills students need to learn. Teach students the skills they need to self-regulate their thinking, emotions, and behaviors. Participants will leave with strategies that can be implemented immediately in the classroom setting.
Re-Think Grading: Formative Assessment that Works!
March 9, 2020
8:30 am - 11:30 am
Effective formative assessments provide teachers vital information to ensure students are on track to meet learning goals. Learn quick easy strategies that engage students in active learning and allow your students to demonstrate their knowledge. These strategies will assist teachers in taking the pulse of the classroom before the unit assessment or homework assignment…when it’s already too late to address misunderstanding! The session will focus on pre-assessment, checking for understanding during instruction, and providing effective feedback.
