Educational perspectives meeting

Deborah Loewenberg Ball will discuss the practices of teaching that are particularly "high-leverage" for beginning and early career teachers. A "high-leverage practice" is an action or task central to teaching. Examples include recognizing common patterns of students' thinking, conducting a whole-class discussion, building relationships with students, choosing representations and examples, and assessing students' learning.

Educational perspectives meeting

Participant will be able to provide feedback to this effort; a draft white paper will be circulated to participants prior to the meeting.
