Int’l Teachers: Curriculum and Assessment (TTC 101)
As teachers in international schools, we often find ourselves in the position of developing curriculum and assessments. It is important that teachers understand the essential elements of a quality curriculum and how to align assessments that empower students as agents of their own their learning.
Participants will learn and practice the following skills:
Write learning outcomes that will form the curriculum
Write each part of a unit plan or scheme of work
Use models of excellence to support student understanding of what “meeting standards” looks like
Develop classroom assessments and rubrics that exhibit characteristics of effective design
Align assessments with intended learnings from the curriculum
Provide feedback to students that supports a growth mindset
Develop practical methods of grading which support rather than inhibit learning
Identify and cultivate conditions for student learning
Implement core instructional strategies in the classroom
This course is suitable for certified teachers working in international schools.
