October 2, 2012 ~ Page Keeley


Formative assessment and successful Inquiry-based science teaching and learning are two sides of the same coin- you can't have one without the other. In order to provide effective inquiry-based experiences for students, teachers need practical, easy to use tools and strategies to elicit students' preconceptions, make sense of students' ideas, adjust their instruction, and monitor students' progress toward building conceptual understanding.

In this interactive workshop participants will learn about and experience a variety of formative assessment classroom techniques (FACTs) that enhance inquiry-based teaching and support learning through change.
