• Graphic Organizers: Participants will learn the components of graphic organizers, how to use graphic organizers within classroom routines to assist students in organizing and retaining information. For example, they will see how the use of a sequence diagram can help students represent sequential processes of an algorithm and solve a mathematical problem. Research indicates that use of Graphic Organizers is effective for helping both middle school and secondary students organize and remember content area information, help students develop higher level thinking skills and promote creativity.
• Assessment Strategies: Participants will be engaged in discussions and activities that address formative classroom assessment designed for both individual tasks and cooperative group tasks. These assessment options are designed to (1) increase students' understanding of concepts through verbal interaction with peers, (2) provide feedback to the instructor on the cognitive processes students use to answer questions, (3) reinforce the classroom learning environment, and (4) model a variety of assessment methods. Because group work is targeted, additional strategies for forming groups quickly and efficiently and, at the same time, to vary the composition and sometimes the size of the groups throughout a lesson will also be addressed in this academy.
