Workshop 2

I. Welcome and Introductions

II. Reviewing and completing Section 1 (begun during workshop 1) – The Learning Context

  • a brief statement of the purpose, objective, or focus of the learning experience;
  • the entire wording of the learning standard(s) and the specific performance indicator(s) being assessed;
    • NY Learns: http://www.nylearns.org/standards/browsestandards.asp
    • Tip: Highlight and copy the selected Standards, Key Ideas, and Performance Indicators into notepad (PC) or simpletext (Mac). Then paste the information into MS Word. This will make the text much easier to format in your Word document.

  • a discussion of what students need to know and/or be able to do to succeed with this learning experience
