Presentation

What Do You Notice? What You NOTICE Affects Your Teaching

As teachers, we only see what we know to look for. What should you pay attention to? How do you really know if students are learning? Where do you look? What do you see? What does it mean? What decisions are made because of what you see? In this session, we will discuss the implications of Professional Noticing and use video to hone our skills.
