Core Processes & Development

Content-Specific Workshop

Content Specific curriculum development workshops are offered for K-12 vertical teams, in-district. The 3-5 day workshops provide opportunity for understanding the elements of effective curriculum and guidance on distinguishing between the ‘need to know’ and the ‘nice to know’ concepts in a content area. Topics examined will include: Why standards as learning targets is not enough; the need for both formative and summative assessments; how to create learning activities for enduring understanding; and how to use Gradual Release of Responsibility as an effective instructional strategy. Call SMCAA at (573) 635-2299 for more information.


 
Curriculum Director Training Level I

The job of Curriculum Director requires a clear understanding of the many responsibilities attached to the position. Without that understanding an individual can spend much of their time tangled-up in ‘what is’ and ‘how do I’ situations. This workshop is designed to help define curriculum leadership responsibilities by providing a review of the “process” of developing and revising an effective K-12 curriculum. Click Here for Additional Information

Why Formative Assessment?

Research in education repeatedly emphasizes the need for teachers to utilize different strategies and skills to help students comprehend content and be able to make connections to real world issues and situations. This workshop will focus on developing appropriate formative assessments and how to use the feedback to help students recognize their own learning styles and their thinking process.

 The Power of Effective Feedback

In this workshop, we will examine what effective feedback looks like in the classroom and how it can be used to enhance performance and achievement.

Participants will have the opportunity to review and evaluate feedback that is commonly used to encourage, correct and at times admonish student work. We will review how feedback is given, even when not formally attached to assessment, and the effect of that feedback. Click Here for Additional Information
