How Do Teachers Help Students Develop Self-directed Learning through Project Work?

Self-direction includes a set of skills that students can learn through project work.  However, teachers must explicitly plan and teach students to set criteria, make decisions, plan, and self-evaluate their work.  Teaching for Intellectual and Emotional Learning (TIEL) will provide a framework for teaching the thinking and social emotional skills that students develop through project work.

Participants will learn how to:
• Set criteria with students
• Plan a project over time
• Teach students to use criteria to evaluate a project
• Use the TIEL framework for teaching a wide range of thinking and social emotional processes through project work

Learning that matters!
The participants will develop an understanding of what authentic learning is and what does it look like in the Early Childhood classroom. Teachers play a major role in creating classroom environments that invite experiential learning opportunities that support real-life experience inside and outside of the classroom. This approach necessitates planning and reflection that targets the connection between subjects. Participants will also explore the assessment tools and strategies most relevant to authentic learning. This exciting and interactive session will have participants experience authentic learning and take away strategies and understanding that they may apply in their own classrooms.

Pedagogical Leadership Teams: A Key Lever to Improving Learning
Research tells us that there is no greater school-related impact on student learning than a teacher in the classroom. The second greatest school-related impact on student learning is school leader effectiveness.  This research has implications for how school leaders support teacher growth and feedback and focus the work of pedagogical leadership teams on learning.  The objectives of this institute are to clearly define what 21st Century learning looks like and identify concrete ways in which a pedagogical leadership team can support learning.  School leaders will walk away with three key levers to promote critical thinking, problem solving and a joy for learning and bring about instructional change and improvement that they can implement in their schools immediately after the session.
