Teacher Training: Assessment

A four-part teacher training workshop

As teachers we first and foremost need to know our students. Their interests, needs, goals, personalities, and learning styles are all of paramount importance for us to know if we are to be of any assistance in helping them improve their English language communication skills. But ultimately we also need to have a good grasp on the parts of speech of the English language if we hope to nurture nuanced understanding and fluent usage of them for our students. In this workshop we will take a closer look at modals, phrasal verbs, vocab strategies, and assessment, and reflect on how our teaching of certain parts of speech can be adapted to satisfy our students holistic learning needs. 

Session 4: Assessment

Okay so we’ve given our students some new material to work with and they’re having a ball with it, participation is off the charts and smiles and goodwill abound. We want this. Things are going well. It’s an idyllically interactive language classroom. But we still need to assess their individual comprehension of and facility with this new material if we hope to be truly effective in helping to ‘make it stick.’ Here’s where our formative assessment tasks and rubrics come in, and here’s where we’ll be working on them together.
