Part 1 Sarah Brown Wessling remarks; “It is not about ways of delivering content as much as it is about ways of getting students to become thinkers; ways for students to be more autonomous.”
· What evidence did you observe in Ms Wessling’s video that her students were becoming thinkers?
· How is this an example of the teacher assessing FOR learning?
Part 2 In Dylan William’s video on embedded formative assessments, he mentions five strategies for teachers to meet students’ learning needs more effectively.
· Describe what you observed from Ms. Wessling’s video that represents each of these strategies.
· Were there any that you did not observe?
· What evidence was there of Ms. Wessling’s students examining their own thinking?
· What evidence did you find to suggest she designed her instruction to meet instructional learning objectives in several areas of development (Think Bloom’s)?
· What did you see from her video that you’d like to try (remember best practices are transferable across grade and age levels)?
