The Shadow Scholar

The Shadow Scholar

NCTE 2010 Orlando

Session: B.20 - 11:00 am to 12:15 pm 11/19/2010 Format: Panel
Room: Coronado/Cancun Room Topic: Assessment
Level(s): Elementary (K-5), Middle (6-8)
In this high stakes age of accountability, schools require teachers to test students multiple times a year. We do not believe these standardized, decontextualized measures are enough to define who our students are as readers, writers, speakers, listeners, and viewers–who they are as literate beings. This presentation will focus on ways elementary and middle school teachers can use assessment to determine differentiated instruction in reading and writing for all learners across the curriculum.
