Share and build some easy formative assessment tools with your colleagues to take back and use in your classrooms tomorrow. Using a strength-based approach, this workshop will encourage you to help your students recognize their potential and self-reflection skills. Knowing where they are, what's next and how to get there will be the focus of the assessment strategies and this workshop. Games, illustrations, digital tools and more will be demonstrated. Join us and please bring an idea or ideas to share with the group. Please bring a charged device as some of the activities will involve digital tools.
Please bring a formative assessment idea or strategy that you use in your classroom currently. Also please bring a charged device to use during the session.
