Workshop 2-The Art and Architecture of Effective Mini-lessons

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
Within the workshop model, the mini-lesson is only 10 minutes (or less), but its potential is transformative. In this session, participants will explore how to best structure a mini-lesson, common obstacles (and how to avoid them!) that turn these lessons into maxi-lessons, and various tools for developing effective mini-lessons based on current student practice. Megan will model how to teach into students’ intentions — thinking about context, being active meaning-makers for students, and targeting student needs. Participants will gain: a strong understanding of how to format mini-lessons, tools (rubrics, charts, mentor texts, etc) for differentiating during workshop time, and various resources to aid in developing unique mini-lessons.
