Cultivating Deep Understanding in the Classroom
September 30th, 2015
presented by Andrew Ordover, Ed.D.
In this webinar, Dr. Ordover provides examples of how teachers can effectively provide opportunities for students to manipulate and “play with” complex, academic concepts in ways that stretch their thinking, challenge their assumptions, and deepen their conceptual understanding of academic material.
During the webinar, teachers will learn:
- Fisher and Berliner’s model of Academic Learning Time to enhance student engagement
- Specific questioning techniques for probing student thinking and unmasking misconceptions
- Instructional strategies for “changing the givens” in a problem to bring more depth and resonance to the material
