Collaboration: Building on Student Assets and Teacher Assets (FULL - only for paid participants)
Collaboration is emerging as a new norm in today’s schools. When educators plan, teach and inquire together, we model the 21st century learning skills we hope to develop in our students. Participants in this session will explore how professional collaboration supports student learning, and how WIDA’s asset-based approach can enhance co-planning, co-teaching, and co-assessing to serve multilingual learners. Together we will examine the collaboration cycle through a lens of integrated language and content learning, while also connecting collaborative practices to professional learning. Participants will also be introduced to the WIDA framework and leave with tools to initiate new partnerships and deepen existing co-teaching relationships.
