About the Course

Language of Instruction: English

Course Description

In a world that has traditionally enabled students, we must teach our kids the power of meta cognitive awareness. Students who have improved insight into their learning and can better communicate what they know excel in school. Moreover, they learn to advocate for the help they need to attain even greater heights.

Reflection is the key tool in this process. In this webinar, Starr Sackstein will share her knowledge and experience as a high school teacher who helps students self-assess their work. Starr guides them to look for evidence from their own learning to support where they are against standards. She will discuss how this is a crucial step for teachers to take in moving away from traditional grading.
