Formative Assessment (4-hour online, self-paced training)
Registration Closed
DESCRIPTION: The general goal of formative assessment is to collect detailed information that can be used to improve instruction and student learning while it’s happening. Formative is used to “inform” what a teacher will do next according to the data received from the students. What makes an assessment “formative” is not the design of a test, technique, or self-evaluation, but to inform in-process teaching and learning modifications. There are a wide variety of methods for teachers to use. This training will take you through the formative assessment maze and show participants how important formative assessment is when used to make sure “all” students are on the road to mastery. NOTE: Once registered, Barb Preston will send you the online training link and directions. Questions? Email Barb at prestonb@roe39.k12.il.us

Mindset and Learning Online (3-hour online, self-paced training)
Registration Closed
DESCRIPTION: Educational Growth Mindsets are beliefs about learning and school. Teachers and students who hold growth learning mindsets are more motivated to challenge themselves with new concepts and persist in setbacks. These mindsets help students achieve higher levels of educational outcomes. Helping students develop a learning mindset will support growth in intelligence, ability, and performance. This online-self-paced 3-hour training will revolve around Carol Dweck’s Mindset and reveal some ideas for classroom activities that maintain growth mindsets in learning and give educators some ideas to grow their own mindset.

Accountable Talk Training (Online & Self-Paced)
Teacher talk should be 20% of class time. Student talk should be 80% of class time. These are not exact percentages for every class, but the brain needs to talk about learning. Students are social beings and need to discuss with peers learning that has taken place inside the classroom. Accountable Talk will support this effort. Accountable Discussions empower students to draw up arguments based on evidence. Students learn how to respect the views of their peers while strengthening their communication skills. They get practice in being good conversationalists, participating in conversations in a polite manner. This training highlights the “how to” of getting students discussing in a manner that promotes learning. NOTE: Once registered, the online training link and directions will be sent to you. Questions?
