The Massachusetts Affiliate of ASCD (MASCD) invites you to a special professional growth experience with Jon Saphier, Founder and President of Research for Better Teaching on Friday, October 28, 2016 at EDC in Waltham from 8:00 am to 3:00 pm.
Jon will present his view of “Making Student Thinking Visible.” MSTV is a constellation of skills. It is a cluster which, when assembled together, produces robust student dialog. You hear evidence-based student talk at high levels of thinking where students take responsibility for their own learning, listen to each other, and teach each other in a climate of mutual support and non-defensiveness. Students talk more than teachers do. This allows the teacher to figure out misconceptions and/or gaps in students’ understanding.
MSTV brings together six strands of successful teaching and learning at once:
HIGH LEVEL AND CRITICAL THINKING
It is the combination of these elements that produces the documented results.
Jon will stay for lunch to network after which attendees will continue the conversation by generating sessions according to their interests/needs.
