Description

Visible Learning for Literacy (for SIG school leaders, coaches, and teachers)

Facilitated by Olivia Amador-Valerio

Provided resource: Visible Learning for Literacy

This workshop demonstrates how using the right approach at the right time helps you more intentionally design classroom experiences that hit the surface, deep, and transfer phases of learning. The workshop covers Visible Learning research; its connections to surface, deep, and transfer learning as it relates to literacy; the best approaches to use in each stage of learning; and the tools for measuring your impact on student learning. Participants will:

  • Apply the principles of Visible Learning research to the literacy classroom
  • Understand the three phases of learning and the unique importance of each: surface, deep, and transfer
  • Learn which literacy practices have the greatest impact on student growth (and which have the least) to maximize teaching time
  • Strategize what practices to implement when in a student’s learning, while keeping rigor in mind
  • Assess the impact of one’s teaching on one’s students—and what to do next as a result
