Differentiation of Instruction Workshop Series Session #3 PDIH2017341

Presenter: Barbara Mammen

The demands on educators have never been greater. Fulfill the belief that all students will succeed. In every classroom, students sit beside classmates who learn differently than they do. Some may be considered gifted, others classified as special education, some struggling readers that are math wizards and others that are budding scientists, all with varying readiness levels for content and skills. In this workshop series, participants will gain an understanding of the foundational principles, the instructional strategies and the assessment techniques that can promote successful, differentiated instruction and learning.

Cost: $300 per person for the three-workshop series Or $149.00 for a single 

 Schedule of Workshops:

In this workshop participants will gain an understanding of each strategy and how to match the students to the strategies. Time will be allotted to access differentiation of instruction web sites to view resources, lesson and templates for planning differentiated activities.

March 15, 2017: Workshop 3 Questioning, Assessment and Grading- From pre-assessment to summative assessment and the instruction in-between, the questions
teachers pose to students are essential to successfully guide their learning, to enhance overall class discussion and to provide assessment data for planning differentiated lessons. This hands-on workshop will focus on the assessment questions teachers ask their students and the factors that affect the effectiveness of the questions. Do your questions reflect the diversity of your students? Please bring samples of teacher-created assessments/student activity worksheets to this workshop.

Working Leaders Series- Session #2 in Blackwood, NJ PDIH2017355

As an administrator it is very difficult to get out of district, or “escape,” for your own professional growth. Devoting an entire day is almost impossible. When you do “escape,” you need the material to be purposeful, real and delivered by someone who knows what it means to be in your shoes. Save the theory for another time, you need to walk away with tools you can use. Tools that will make you better at what you do. Welcome to the Working Leaders Series.
The Working Leaders Series workshops are delivered by working professionals - practicing what they teach. The sessions are half a day in length; either 8:30 - 11:30 a.m. or 12:30 - 3:30 p.m. Thus making the “escape” more manageable. You can be on-site for student arrival or dismissal at your school. You can make it back for that important afternoon meeting. A principal could attend the morning session and the assistant principal could attend the afternoon session, insuring building coverage, professional growth and continuity for your team of working leaders.

 Fee:$99.00 per session -  Attend one, two or all three half-day sessions ( Registration required for each date)

Working Leaders Series - Session #3 in Blackwood, NJ PDIH2017355

As an administrator it is very difficult to get out of district, or “escape,” for your own professional growth. Devoting an entire day is almost impossible. When you do “escape,” you need the material to be purposeful, real and delivered by someone who knows what it means to be in your shoes. Save the theory for another time, you need to walk away with tools you can use. Tools that will make you better at what you do. Welcome to the Working Leaders Series.
The Working Leaders Series workshops are delivered by working professionals - practicing what they teach. The sessions are half a day in length; either 8:30 - 11:30 a.m. or 12:30 - 3:30 p.m. Thus making the “escape” more manageable. You can be on-site for student arrival or dismissal at your school. You can make it back for that important afternoon meeting. A principal could attend the morning session and the assistant principal could attend the afternoon session, insuring building coverage, professional growth and continuity for your team of working leaders.

 Fee:$99.00 per session
