Activity: Talk or presentation › Oral presentation › -
Challenging all students and taking into account various learning styles and preferences is not easy. This past year ten teachers of English in bilingual schools and three facilitators from HVA and ICLON have been exploring ways to enable students to follow their own trajectories, making use of differentiated tasks including formative assessment tools and scaffolds. Their starting point was the CLASSmodel, developed by Fred Janssen and designed to help teachers decide on different trajectories using a task-based approach. During this interactive workshop we introduce the CLASS model and discuss various ways in which we can differentiate. We illustrate these with examples from the designs made by participants. Some of the teachers are present, to tell you how they experienced making the tasks and working with them in their own schools.
