Judson Welcomes Rick Wormeli to Speak at the Spring A Day at Judson Event on March 7
(ELGIN, IL – February 10, 2016)
Judson's Division of Education will host its semiannual "A Day at Judson" seminar on Monday, March 7, in the Lindner Campus Commons (1151 N. State St., Elgin) from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
The biannual event is co-hosted by Dr. Steven L. Layne, co-chair of Graduate Programs in Literacy Education, and Professor Joy Towner, chair of the Division of Education.
The spring guest presenter will be Rick Wormeli, author of “Fair Isn’t Always Equal” and “Differentiation from Planning to Practice.” Wormeli was one of the first nationally board-certified teachers in the United States.
This esteemed educator, consultant and author will explore the theme of “Standards-based Assessment and Grading: What 4-12 Literacy Teachers Need to Know.”
“Join me for a provocative look at assessing and grading in today’s literacy classrooms, including conversations on: evidence for mastery, red-do’s, homework, grade books, formative/summative/common assessments, special education reporting, grading scales, the end of averaging, and more. Candid and practical, this is the day to get your questions answered,” Wormeli promises participants.
Twice a year, “A Day at Judson” seminars invite hundreds of area educators to come and interact with leading experts in the field of education. Attendees earn six PD hours, network and enjoy lunch and other refreshments.
NOTE: This event is at capacity.
