CLTA-WA invites you to join us for our 2017 Summer Workshop:
Standards-Based Assessment Integration in the Mandarin Classroom
Date: Saturday, August 26, 2017
Time: 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM
Venue: Kirkland Library (308 Kirkland Ave, Kirkland, WA 98033)
Cost: Free, all are welcome!
Presenter: Jeremy Smith, Middle School Mandarin Teacher at the Westside School
Appropriate Levels: K-16 The workshop will be conducted in Mandarin Chinese and English. In this workshop, we will look at methods and techniques for designing and integrating standard-based assessments into novice through advanced level curricula. This workshop will provide hands-on, guided experience in how to:
1) backwards design your curriculum using authentic, standards based assessments
2) how to introduce the concept of standards-based assessment into your classroom by developing student ownership in your curriculum.
This workshop will be a three-hour working session. By the end of the workshop, participants will leave having designed their own model instructional unit with corresponding standards-based formative and summative assessments. Participants will be asked to build their model curriculum and assessments per ACTFL designated proficiency standards. It is recommended that you bring your laptop, as all the discussion and design will facilitated digitally. In the second half of the workshop, participants will be given the chance to share their unit and assessments during the follow up discussion and review sections.
