The Big Three: Research-Based Practices That Make the Greatest Impact on Student Achievement Grades 3 to 12

August 15, 2017 | Centre County Office - 60 Decibel Rd, State College, Pa 16801 

9:00 AM - 3:00 PM | Registration begins at 8:30 AM

0 (Includes lunch and materials) 

For teachers in all subject areas at grades 3 through 12, department heads, principals, supervisors, curriculum coordinators, curriculum committee members, and special educators.

Lessen the stress of curriculum demands and state testing by focusing on three best practices:
  1. The Retrieval Routine to make learning stick
  2. Ten Percent Summary to teach content and enhance literacy
  3. Compare and Contrast Grid to build higher order thinking and multi-paragraph writing skills
You will leave this high energy workshop fully prepared to plan, assign, and quickly evaluate assignments built around our three research-based practices. Participants will receive a resource package with reproducible materials to begin using the next day and to share with colleagues.

  • Learn about three school-wide practices that every teacher can implement to improve student achievement
  • Help students develop general academic vocabulary—the kind needed for success in all disciplines
  • Improve student comprehension of informational text while learning course content
  • Give quick, clear, productive feedback
  • Employ the power of frequent formative assessment and “effortful retrieval”
  • Help students organize and structure analytical, multi-paragraph essays

This one day session provides well described, sequenced strategies that show teachers how to help students respond to TDA and other evidence-based prompts. These strategies also work for DBQs (document based questions) and the SAT essay, thereby attracting a wider range of participants and providing a unified approach for school districts.
