Page Keeley – Uncovering Student Ideas and Practices: Implications for 3-D Teaching and Learning

Combining research on learning and the experiences and wisdom of practitioners, participants will examine what it means to teach for conceptual change and identify ways to make profound changes in their own practice. They will also gain experience with strategies through modeling and discussion for eliciting students' and teachers' ideas. This will enable the participant to make informed instructional decisions based on where students and teachers are in their thinking at any point during an instructional sequence. Participants will be guided through the use of a formative assessment framework that links assessment, instruction, and learning targets. Throughout the workshop, core disciplinary ideas, cross-cutting concepts, and scientific practices will be used.

Where: Pleasant Hill Recreation Center, 147 Gregory Lane, Pleasant Hill, CA 94523

When: February 15, 2017, 8:30 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.
