Strategies to Check for Understanding (7 hrs)
(7 Hours) This course will teach participants the value of incorporating frequent checks for understanding into their lesson plans. They will learn about three types of checks, including verbal, written and demonstration, as well as learn when they need to be incorporated into a lesson cycle. Course participants will also learn the value of collecting data from these checks, and how to use that data to inform future instructional decisions.
When and how should I incorporate checks for understanding into my daily lesson plans in order to ensure student success?
- CFU activities need to be incorporated before teaching new content, during the actual lesson, and at the end of the lesson.
- CFU activities can be verbal, written, or consist of a student demonstration.
- CFU activities may be closed, in which there is one correct answer, or more open-ended where students responses will vary and require higher level thinking skills.
- The main purpose of any CFU is to provide data for the teacher to analyze as he/she makes future instructional decisions.
At the conclusion of the course, you will receive a certificate for 7 CPE hours. Model Teaching and Action Potential Learning is a Statewide, TEA (Texas Education Agency) approved provider for Continuing Professional Education credit. CPE# 902-391
