K5 Assessment & Differentiation with Dr. Yeap Ban Har
This two-day workshop will focus on using the Singaporean approach to assess your students and differentiate your classroom based on your assessments. You’ll learn how to do accomplish this by using strategies that are grounded in solid research and that won’t complicate your planning or lessons more than necessary.
Contrary to popular belief, differentiation in a mathematics classroom is not the seemingly endless creation of materials, mini-lessons, and assessments for your students. This is unsustainable. As our classrooms grow to be more diverse, our teachers need the tools and resources to face the resulting challenges – tools that work. Dr. Yeap Ban Har will pave the way for all who attend.
