Penn State York Summer Literacy Institute Presents
Keeping Assessment in Perspective
June 20–24, 2016
The Pullo Family Performing Arts Center
Discover what educational leaders have to say about keeping assessment in perspective and students at the heart of our instructional decisions.
The year’s best week of professional development!
Featuring six keynote presentations and eighteen breakout sessions from leaders in literacy from across the country.
Attend the week for three graduate credits or attend one or more days for Act 48 hours.
Do you feel a connection between required assessment and your reading and writing work with students? Whether you are a faculty member, an administrator, a para-professional, a coach, or an assessment coordinator, the topic of assessment is one you discuss almost daily. Throughout this week, teachers will learn how to keep assessment in perspective by learning about the power of data analysis and how assessment and instruction are inseparable, by learning a variety of reading and writing conferring techniques, by hearing about the power of formative assessment, and by using language to change lives. The Penn State York Summer Literacy Institute provides an opportunity to explore the latest research, collaborate with experienced educators, and offers time to create a research-based action plan for the 2016–17 school year, around the topic of assessment.
