Allen Parish--July 18 and 19
In the afternoon, I am looking forward to focusing in on Understanding by Design's AMT acronym. AMT references the teaching goals and learning roles common to our practice; ultimately, we want students to Acquire information from our various content areas, Make meaning of that content, and finally Transfer it to a new and unique situation. Sounds easy enough, but if you are like me, the curriculum drives me forward, and I have to remind myself to take time for transfer. I am working on a Livebinder to share just a few Web-based possibilities for infusing all three into a technology-focused classroom. If this session is like others, I know I will have many participants willing to share their own strategies, too.

Session handouts posted below!
Last year's ASCD conference featured Differentiated Instruction, What Works in Schools, and Understanding by Design. My two sessions will discuss the connections between the UbD model of curriculum design and writing and technology (respectively). I am a strong proponent of authentic assessment and the stage 3 WHERETO mandate that we must give our kids time to reflect, rethink, and revise. For me, that is what these two presentations are all about. I hope you find them thought-provoking.
Please note: any links originally made to student work that resides on my computer will not work in the Power Point copy, below; however, all of the application links should still be live. Tip sheets reside under their own tab (above). Feel free to use and modify these resources--and if you have any to share, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Note: If you are looking for the turning woman jpeg, download the tech session Power Point and copy and paste her off of the slide. She will continue to turn (right or left--you decide!)
