Checking for Understanding

(Led by Pete Pease – Director of Learning & James Parkinson – Lead Practitioner)

Perhaps the most important characteristic of a great teacher is his/her ability to distinguish between “I taught it” and “They learned it”.  This focus group will offer concrete, engaging, and easy-to-implement techniques you can use to recognise and respond to a lack of mastery quickly (when you have 300 other things to think about).  Effective for both new teachers and veterans, Checking for Understanding comprises 10 techniques top tier teachers use to gather data quickly and act on it before misunderstandings snowball – all the while creating a culture that respects, normalises and values mistakes.
