Mission Statement: Students will have consistent opportunities throughout the school year to become proficient in concrete connections between the paper world and computer world of assessment.
Objective Statement: The Content 2 Computer seminar will provide teachers with activities that teach students how to effectively utilize scratch paper and the online tools on the day of the assessment through continued use of the hands-on strategies throughout the school year.
Materials: Teachers do not need to bring any items in which to be successful in the inservice. All materials and manipulatives will be provided, including a 100+ page handout and several take-away manipulatives.
Abstract Overview: Content meets Computer, and they fall in love! Language Arts has a new life and excitement as we forge into the era of online assessment.
Teach BIG provides real-time applications so that students and teachers have confidence as they tackle STAAR 2.0. Learn how to use online assessment tools such as selecting and highlighting text evidence, striking-through distractor answers choices, and using the built-in notepad for annotating. We will take all of the available tools on the online STAAR 2.0 assessment and learn how to utilize them to the fullest by first experiencing them visually and kinesthetically through using hands-on manipulatives easily found in the everyday classroom!
Expected Outcome: Teachers and students will become familiar and confident with the available online tools as well as the on-scratch-paper strategies that will lead to successful test-takers for STAAR 2.0 and beyond.
