Building on Useful Ideas
One of the strands of the Rutgers long-term study was to find out how
useful ideas spread through a community of learners and evolve over
time. Here, the focus is in on the teacher’s role in fostering
First-graders develop an understanding of the numeration system by
relating counting, grouping, and place-value concepts. Activities
include measuring with Unifix cubes and using base-ten blocks. NCTM
standards: number sense and numeration, measurement, connections.
Assessment in Math and Science - What'd I Get?: Scoring Tools
Workshop 2. What'd I Get?: Scoring Tools (90 min.)
'Well-designed performance tasks give teachers the information necessary to evaluate the depth of students' understanding — but how can teachers determine quality work? This workshop demonstrates how teachers can construct assessment tools for benchmarks of student understanding. The role of students in the construction of scoring tools and the process of assessment will be a primary focus. Content Guide: K. Michael Hibbard.'
Assessment in Math and Science-That Would Never Work Here, Either!
Workshop 7. That Would Never Work Here, Either!: Seeing Assessment Reform in Action, Part II (90 min.)
'Involving students in assessment is often the key to engaging them in learning. This workshop will continue to follow Barbara and Scott as they use assessment to encourage their students to improve their performance.

Applying Themes and Disciplines Workshop 4
What do we teach? Working from the NCSS themes and standards, the onscreen teachers identify approaches to integrating disciplines while teaching social studies content. Classroom video segments illustrate effective strategies for teaching across the curriculum and provide an opportunity to reflect on teaching practices. The session ends with the teachers developing a lesson plan that incorporates a variety of themes and disciplines.
Different Kinds of Smarts:Multiple Intelligences-Session 4
This program delves into Harvard University professor Howard Gardner’s theory of multiple intelligences, describing how people have learning skills that differ in significant ways. Featured are teachers who share a class of five- through eight-year-olds, including several mainstreamed special needs students, and a ninth- and 10th-grade social studies teacher, with expert commentary from Howard Gardner
Encouraging Discussion Workshop 2
