Int’l Teachers: Personalizing Learning (TTC 103)
In the non-selective admissions environment of most international schools, effective teachers strive to personalize learning that meets the needs of diverse learners. Participants in this course will develop a framework for effective inclusive instruction by gaining practical experience applying the five major conceptual keys of personalized learning: (1) Knowing our students; (2) Knowing our curriculum; (3) Knowing our assessments; (4) Knowing our pedagogy; (5) Knowing our relationships.
Participants will learn and practice how to:
Teach students to better understand themselves as learners
Create informative pre-assessments based on intended learnings
Use pre-assessment data for unit planning
Plan learning activities which include choice and varied complexity
Use data to plan personalized and differentiated learning opportunities within units
Create a differentiated assessment to meet students’ needs
