Course Description

Engaged Teaching: Enabling Struggling Learners and Students With Disabilities to Succeed in Writing Constructed Response Answers

The workshop will demonstrate how to implement a Constructed/Extended Response Boot Camp within your classroom. The session will introduce a new variation on the acronym R. A. C. E. using a slightly tweaked version - "R.A. C. E. D. (Restate, Answer, Cite, Explain, & Discuss)” The goal of this conference is to show teachers how to teach ALL students including SWD's to dissect a question and determine exactly what they are being asked to answer and to create an acceptable constructed/extended response. This will be done through a rotation of stations that address each component of “R.A.C.E.D.” required in a well developed constructed/extended response answer.

Class Notes

Target Audience: Regular Education Teachers Grades 2-5

                                                 Special Education Teachers: Grades 2-8 


Learning objectives for this session are:

= Attendees will be able to incorporate an Engaged-Teaching Lesson into their own classrooms. You will be able to take this workshop back and incorporate it into your own classroom!

= Attendees will take away a clear vision of what an engaged classroom looks like.

= Attendees will learn how to incorporate small props into a class lesson and understand how this can amplify  student engagement.

Attendees will learn a guided format to follow that will assist their students in meeting proficiency levels when writing a constructed/extended response. This training will help all students, however there is a differentiated format (that will be presented as well) especially geared to training SWD's in how to answer a constructed/extended response prompt with success.
