Join us Tuesday, April 17, at 3:30 p.m. (Mountain Time) for a conversation about student presentations of learning. The webinar will be conducted in the CoLearning Network space on AdobeConnect. Sarah Park (Director of Mapleton Early College, Denver, Colorado) and Michael Soguero (Director of Professional Development at Eagle Rock School, Estes Park, Colorado) will lead the conversation.
At Mapleton Early College and Eagle Rock, presentations of learning provide students a powerful opportunity to reflect and report on their growth as learners and members of a community of learners. During their years at these schools, students make multiple presentations to groups of students and teachers (and, at Eagle Rock, to a panels of observers from outside the school community). The presentations serve as benchmarks, thresholds, and celebrations. Followed over the years, they both documents and promote tremendous mental and emotional growth.
Topics the webinar will explore include:
- the purposes and values of assessment;
- the curricular role of student presentations of learning;
- assessment of skills and habits of mind;
- building an intentional positive school culture;
- agonies and ecstasies of communities of learning;
- promoting academic achievement and human potential.
