Johnson Fine Arts Center Theatre

8:00-Noon

 

Using High-Leverage Practices to Support Ambitious Learning for All Students

 

Workshop description: This workshop will help participants familiarize themselves with 19 high-leverage teaching practices identified by TeachingWorks, an organization at the University of Michigan dedicated to ensuring that all students have skillful teachers. Each of the 19 practices is closely linked to student learning of ambitious academic content. The presenters will introduce the list of practices and explain where it came from and what purposes it is intended to serve, share detailed decompositions of key practices, and lead participants in examining multiple video clips exemplifying those key practices. Participants will have the opportunity to identify strengths and weaknesses in the teaching in each clip, and to consider how the teaching could be improved. There will be ample opportunity for discussion. The goals of the workshop are for participants to be able to identify the main parts of each key practice, explain how the practice is linked to student learning of ambitious content, improve their own delivery of each practice, and support colleagues and mentees in using the practices competently.

 

Graduate Credit Opportunity:  One graduate credit is available through Northern State University at a reduced cost of $40.  Those interested in the graduate credit MUST preregister by Aug. 5, 2017, by completing the Registration Form. You also can register for undergraduate credit on the form.

High Leverage Teaching Practices

Just want to let you know how excited I am to have this opportunity. My theater class tonight was very interesting. It is so great that the teachers would come to Huron to teach our classes. I am so thankful!
