Smarter Balanced Assessments, change for the better?
In Mr. Bernia's last Daytime Staff Meeting, they discussed their new Smarter Balanced Assessments that will help students be successful after they leave their school. Some of these include:Teach kids the skill of taking notes, planning, and revising; Give students the chance to use technology; Provide real world examples in student work; and Change our interventions – less on work completion, more on learning. I think that every teacher should use this checklist to help their students be the best they can be. I will definitely keep this checklist and add Mr. Bernia to my PLN.
