Yesterday I had the opportunity to attend a full day workshop for teachers offered by the school board I work for. I enjoy taking a day off from the classroom to receive learning that will help me improve my teaching practice. The teachers at my table were interesting and we chatted about our classes, what we have done with them, and shared snippets about our teaching experience.
The focus of the workshop was on assessment and I learned of a few techniques that I had not heard of before. What the presenters spoke about yesterday was just a part of what this blended learning experience will be – we are to meet again in February and will be expected to participate in online discussions.
We were all excited to receive our resource for this series of workshops: a book focused on assessment written by a leader in this topic. Paging through the 450 page book, I see headlines that interest me and I forsee myself doing some reading this weekend!
This week I am grateful for the resource I received at the workshop I attended. It promises to be an interesting read and I look forward to learning about ways in which I can improve my assessment strategies in the classroom.
What have you been grateful for this week?
