Recognizing the difference between “I taught it” and “They learned it” is one of the most important challenges that a teacher faces. Consistently and effectively Checking for Understanding allows teachers to both uncover and respond to student misunderstandings.
Join Doug Lemov, Colleen Driggs, Hilary Lewis to prepare to deliver high quality training on Check for Understanding. Ensuring all students master rigorous content requires that teachers engineer their classrooms to Check for Understanding systematically and effectively. This workshop will help leaders equip teachers to intentionally expose student misunderstandings and productively respond to error.
WE WILL ANALYZE AND PRACTICE:
- Gathering data effectively through Teach Like a Champion 2.0 techniques including Standardize the Format, Tracking Not Watching, Show Me, Reject Self Report, Targeted Questioning, and Affirmative Checking.
- Creating a safe and productive environment in which students reveal their misconceptions by creating a Culture of Error via Normalize Error, Withhold the Answer, Manage the Tell, and Praise Risk Taking.
- Responding immediately to student misunderstandings through Plan for Error, Show Call, and Own and Track.
