Teaching, Measuring, and Observing Critical Thinking - 21st Century Survival Skills

$119

with EdAdvance Staff

Calendar Apr 1, 2020 at 8:30 am

This session will focus on the use of a standards-aligned critical thinking rubric to provide a coherent framework for setting expectations and providing consistent communication, evaluation, and effective feedback for teachers and students. This work has supported districts in measuring the high-leverage skill of critical thinking in K-12 students. The implementation of a critical thinking rubric through a process of social construction has contributed to a common understanding and an increase in the reliability of skill-based assessments throughout a school/district. Building a coherent framework for student assessment and effective feedback moves student achievement forward in a consistent manner aligned to teacher student learning objectives/goals.

Includes continental breakfast and lunch.

Audience: Teachers, Instructional Coaches, Administrators
