Teaching Students to Self-Assess and Reflect for Deeper Learning Using Effective Feedback

with Brandy Hempen


Ever wonder how you can get kids to develop as reflective thinkers? Learn strategies to teach kids to move toward deeper reflections in their learning to better inform instruction and feedback. Participants will learn where, when, and how to implement reflection as a means of self-assessment, driving a more standards-based approach to learning and moving away from traditional assessment and grading techniques. The type of feedback that teachers provide matters. When and how feedback is given also matters. Simple techniques derived from researcher John Hattie will be shared to increase the success of you and your students. Each of these low-prep, high impact strategies will be shared in a hands-on and engaging way. Do not expect a lecture but do be prepared to participate even in this virtual workshop type of setting. Many strategies to optimize positive feedback while still focusing on making individual and group progress will be shared. The reality is this: while assessment gets all the press, it is feedback for learning that can truly transform a student's learning. Join Dr. Brandy Hempen to find out how easy these changes can be made to increase the success of your students this year and forevermore.
