Often, in classrooms, students will sit silent when asked if they understand or may not even be aware of what they do or do not understand. Strategic, well-designed checks for understanding based on clear, student-facing learning targets can provide an opportunity for teachers to get insight into their students comprehension of content and make adjustments to their instruction.

This workshop is designed for teachers and coaches who want to build understanding around how to check for student understanding in a variety of ways to inform their instruction. This session would be a good fit for any educator, whether they are just beginning to transition to more formative assessment in their classroom, or they are more experienced and want to build ideas around varied types of assessments.
I implement varied checks for understanding to assess student levels.
