Learning for a Lifetime
Module 4 - Planning, Pedagogy and Assessment




Sample Activities:

  1. Teaching Approaches that Differentiate – discuss/reflect - What pedagogical approaches are we familiar with? Do we use? Do we champion? Do we want to know more about? Do we want to try? What other approaches help to differentiate?
  2. Use the Redesigned Curriculum Planning Framework to discuss how planning might work with the revised curriculum
  3. In a small group, use the Redesigned Curriculum Planning Framework to plan an area of study
  4. Bring a variety of planning templates that promote backwards design, and as a group, decide what makes sense or create your own – choose one to use for planning
  5. Use Reflecting on Action template as a commitment for something each staff or team will try (can use this to start May meeting or re-visit/reflect upon at each staff meeting.

Guiding questions for Discussions:

  • In what ways can I collaborate with my peers to support cross-disciplinary planning?
  • How can I use these templates?
  • How can I personalize a template to reflect my way of thinking and doing things?
  • What template design will support the development of assessment for and as learning?
  • How can I use the search tool to support/plan for an interdisciplinary approach
  • What rich question would excite my students and allow them to learn through their own investigation?
  • How could I use our unique location in the province to turn that inquiry into a place-based exploration?
  • How will I plan assessment opportunities that reflect a wide variety of ways for my students to show their learning?
  • How can I design assessment that gets at deep learning and understanding, and ensures that my students are involved in the process?
