Workshops 6 and 7

That would never 
work here

What does assessment reform actually look like? Workshops 6 and 7 will follow the stories of Barbara, a math teacher in Whittier, California, and Scott, a science teacher in Fairdale, Kentucky, as they share their efforts to incorporate assessment into their teaching practice. In workshop 6 we will focus on ways in which these teachers "go public" with their work by exchanging ideas with colleagues in their schools and by using the support of other teachers in developing their practice. In workshop 7 we will learn of strategies used by Barbara and Scott to involve students in assessing their own work and that of their peers.

AISR LogoThese workshops, produced by the Annenberg Institute for School Reform (AISR), at Brown University, provide an opportunity to observe Scott's students, as they investigate the Mars Pathfinder mission, and to see the ways in which Barbara's students work collaboratively to develop their understanding of algebraic functions and their graphs.
