Evaluation and Evidence of Learning and Application: *

Evaluation and evidence of learning will happen on a cyclical basis as we go through lesson study. Each feedback session (per and post observation) will involve a reflection of what was learned, what can be improved upon, as well as a small group collection of evidence established by teacher. The beauty of this course is that it focuses on strategies and impact on learning, application, and figuring out what makes a visible impact on student learning.
