Description:
This is a 4-day event focusing on the use of diagnostic assessment to inform instruction. Teachers learn to administer and analyze 3 distinct diagnostic assessment tools providing teachers with a detailed profile of their students’ current understandings of Number Words and Numerals, Structuring Numbers, and Early Addition and Subtraction. The Learning Framework in Number provides stages and levels that pinpoint the child’s understanding. This in-depth analysis provides the basis for designing instruction to accelerate children’s learning. Participants will examine the Classroom Instructional Framework in Early Number and use this framework to reflect upon curriculum demands. Teachers explore how to organize the resulting data and to design lessons that reflect the range of understandings of their students. Exemplary instructional settings will be discussed and incorporated into differentiated lessons. There is a mandatory two-day follow-up that will be scheduled some time in August or September.

2.0 CEU Recertification Credit will be available at no additional cost, 2.0 Colorado Mesa Graduate Credit will be available for an additional $90.

Colorado¹s District Sample Curriculum Project- Phase three

This summer, opportunities will exist to help write a curriculum unit that is differentiated for students with unique and specific needs. The curriculum samples developed through CDE this past year are being extended to demonstrate a full instructional unit that reflects an integrated approach and attention to diverse student needs. The writing of units will be a collaborative process ­ a team approach. Travel and lodging expenses will be reimbursed. We are also exploring pre-webinar experiences to establish common ground before the specific team work week.  It is our goal to provide every curriculum unit writing team with a gifted education advocate for depth and complexity of unit development.  Educators are need for each standard in every grade level and content area.  It should prove to be a rewarding professional experience. Applications are being accepted at
