Making Students Visible

Who are your learners? What unique ways of seeing, thinking and problem-solving do they bring to the learning? How can we be more deliberate and systematic in letting their perspectives and experiences inform our planning and instruction? In this session we will examine and discuss examples of what we can do to make our students culturally, metacognitively and academically visible. We will analyze routines that attempt to move students from the edges to the center of meaning-making processes and consider how to reconfigure old and familiar pedagogical tools such as questioning, grouping, assessing, discussion facilitation and even instruction itself to convince each of our students that their daily presence and unique contributions are an integral part of the learning.
