KORCOS18 IEC has ended
We are here: Compassion, Creativity, Change.  

Let’s come together as a community of educators to reflect, grow and connect, empowering each other to create change agents for tomorrow.  What does it mean to be compassionate? What does it mean to be innovative? What does it mean to teach? To learn? To care?

We can’t wait to host you at GSIS for the Korea Council of Overseas Schools International Educators’ Conference 2018 (#KORCOSIEC18).  We are excited to make connections with the vision to create a better tomorrow.  That begins with the idea of a "We" being in the moment together, with the commitment to be our best selves for our students.  

Let’s do this.

Session Objectives:
1. Get a peak at your students’ thought processes using formative assessment to drive instruction and improve student understanding
2. Learn new strategies for deep classroom discussion that involve all students

Session Description:
Peek into your students' thought processes using formative assessment to drive instruction and improve student understanding. This session is mainly for middle and high school science teachers; however, some of these strategies can be used in elementary levels and all math levels, too!

Participants will gain skills on effective formative assessment use, specific formative assessment questions (probes into students’ thinking about content), methods to increase student participation in activities and classroom discussions, and a basic understanding of a guided 5 E model of inquiry-based instruction. This session is grounded in affective inquiry, coupled with hands-on science investigations and engaging formative assessment strategies. Participants engage in all aspects of learning during this session...actually modeling what their students will do when these strategies are implemented in the classroom, the most effective way of insuring new ideas and strategies will be replicated.
