October 20 @ 8:30 am - 3:30 pm
It is time to rethink the relationship between teaching and learning and assess the crucial skills students need to succeed in the 21st century. Lee Watanabe Crockett asserts that educators must focus assessment on mindfulness and feedback for improvement, framing assessment around six fluencies students need to cultivate. This day-long seminar outlines scenarios, lessons, activities, and assessment rubrics from Crockett’s 2016 book on the same topic:
-Discover the essential fluencies and skills students need for success in the 21st century;
-Examine different kinds of assessments and their focuses, strengths, and weaknesses;
-Gain assessment rubrics for evaluating students skills in the fluencies;
-Access sample lessons and projects that support the fluencies;
-Employ the Solution Fluency Activity Planner to help students develop the fluencies they’ll need to succeed in the 21st century.
