Education is changing and consequently, so should our teaching. As educators, we must create a positive, innovative learning environment which supports and empowers our students by taking an active role in their own learning. We will review the 21st century competencies, navigating various models of learning while also integrating technology (e.g. Google classroom). Our shift in instruction will support a shift in assessment practices. We will review formative assessment and descriptive feedback supporting learning goals which will guide instruction. Assessment is set at individual student needs. Teachers will be able to review their programs to design lessons supporting the 21st century learner.
