    SUMMARY

    The Instructional Agility Professional Learning Institute (PLI) session takes participants back to the core fundamentals of classroom assessment. Rather than creating assessment events that require teachers to stop teaching in order to conduct their formative assessments, the focus will be on the more organic process of infusing assessment experiences into any activity or strategy. Specifically, participants will come to know the two, non-negotiable characteristics that make an activity a formative assessment experience as well as some practical strategies that can be used for assessment purposes.

    KEY AUDIENCE: Teachers, Teacher Teams, Teacher Leaders, Coaches, Instructional Leaders

    SUMMARY

    Project Based Learning (PBL) is a research-based instructional approach that allows teachers to incorporate authentic learning experiences that provide students agency and complexity in their learning. PBL allows teachers within a discipline and across discipline to design learning experiences where students connect conceptual understandings. Using PBL, teachers are able to offer students a wide degree of voice and choice while ensuring that students master essential disciplinary content and skills. This training targets teachers from Grade 4 through Grade 12 and will focus on classroom-based strategies that empower learners to inquire and master essential content.
