What is deeper learning? How should curriculum be framed to promote deeper learning? How should deeper learning be assessed? What kinds of instruction are needed to help students learn deeply? In this session, renowned educators and best-selling authors Jay McTighe address these important questions by exploring ideas from their recent ASCD member book, Teaching for Deeper Learning: Tools to Engage Students in Meaning Making. They will present three principles underlying effective design and delivery, and highlight examples of practical and proven tools and strategies to help educators actively engage students in making meaning.
