Our curriculum is described as competency-based, concept-focused. How does that translate into what we teach and assess? We'll look at lesson planning through a competency-based lens. Our engaging, hands-on practice will provide you with examples you can take with you, and we will walk you through a step-by-step process to transform your lessons to ones that will have your students learning subject-matter content in ways that provoke them, improve their critical thinking, and that are authentic and rich. No more teaching and "studenting" - let's embrace thinking classrooms!
Lisa likes to explore the interconnectedness of literacy, numeracy and assessment and how they dovetail with learning support, inclusion and indigenous ways of knowing. Lisa loves to collaborate with educators to help them find ways to enhance their own professional growth, especially with instruction and assessment, as it relates to instructional design at the middle and secondary levels.
Alexis is passionate about the use of educational technology, design thinking, standards-based assessment and lesson design.
