ONLINE PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT

Teaching for Deeper Learning

As we navigate today’s unique learning challenges, we still need students to retain, understand, and apply what they learn. And of course, it’s imperative that we support our students in the development of real thinking skills that help them succeed in the world beyond school.

How do we ensure deep learning for all students, no matter what the teaching and learning circumstances?
This became our essential question as we developed the Teaching for Deeper Learning program.

Based on the award-winning work of Harvey Silver and Jay McTighe – two of today’s top education experts.

“... a person's ability to thrive in the modern world is based on their ability to analyze the veracity of information, make sense of its context and perspective, draw conclusions, take responsible action (often in concert with others), assess the impact of that action, and reassess based on new information. Teaching for Deeper Learning gives teachers the tools to equip students with these critical capacities.”

Michael R. Cornell, Superintendent, Hamburg Central School District (New York)

Build the Thinking Skills That Students Need to Become Better Learners

In Teaching for Deeper Learning, Harvey Silver and Jay McTighe have identified seven skills that are the most critical to students’ real-world and academic success. Each module focuses on one of these skills and makes it easy to integrate the skill into lessons and units.

PLUS the full program includes an additional module: Framing Learning Around Big Ideas.

The 7 Deeper Learning Skills

Empowering students to think the way experts think—by organizing facts and details around big ideas and core concepts

Note Making and Summarizing
