Examples of student work and student reflections

How can Secondary teachers measure students’ understanding beyond tests and essays? Assessment in many Secondary classrooms requires a high level of English proficiency many English language learners have not acquired, preventing these students the means to participate actively in class and demonstrate their learning. Using multimodal tools, this project seeks to create culturally inclusive classrooms that document students’ thinking and learning through the use of Harvard University’s visible thinking routines and various technology tools. The presenter will share students’ learning from English as an Additional Language classrooms and Content classes. Participants will engage in workshop activities that explore thinking routines and technology tools they can use in their schools to engage and assess English language learners.
