Ways of Capturing Student Thinking
Strategies that Analyze, Deconstruct and Honour Student Work
Things I discovered about the expectation I'm examining & Key ideas uncovered by my research
-teacher moderation allows teachers to assess more fairly
-areas of strength and weakness are pinpointed
-good practices are shared between teachers
Teacher Moderation should also become an integral part of professional learning and school practices.
Pedagogical Documentation - using assessment FOR and AS learning strategy which has been called a from of "visible listening" using video, images, and notes to name a few
-it is an effective way to see a child's understanding of a concept, capture student learning as individuals, student and teacher accountability, provides a student voice in their work
Connections I make to my practice as a teacher & Questions I still have or ideas I want to understand better
Pedagogical Documentation is an excellent was to honour student work. I really enjoy using video and images to capture what my students are learning. One connection was during the Excellence in Eloquence Speech Competition, when I captured all of my student speeches on video. We were able to watch the videos over and over. We could pinpoint areas to improve, celebrate the great moments and laugh at the mistakes. The student found it extremely valuable, which led to us using video during Accountable Math Talks and Math Inquiry.
