Building on Student Strengths
Dynamic assessment, which seeks to identify a child’s
individual skills and learning potential, can be a useful but labor-intensive
process. In this course – which is broken into six 5-minute activities – the
presenter will demonstrate how you can efficiently collect data through dynamic
assessment using the META (Match – Extend – Try it – Assess) Map tool to extend
and expand on the student’s communicative strengths. Then the presenter will
guide you through actionable steps to use the tool and reflect on the results.
You will be able to:
- Describe how to extend or expand
on what is working for a student on your caseload using a dynamic assessment
What is a micro course?
Designed to fit your busy schedule, micro courses are 30-minute courses that are broken into six 5-minute blocks, two of which are speaker-led and four of which guide you through practicing a new strategy with a client on your current caseload.
