  • NEED – list of outcomesActivity 1 – Give example outcomes (5 or 6 outcomes choose from across the curriculum). Elicit responses. (goal: emulate our process. “We just want you to have a sense for the type of thinking and type of work we went through in creating the Toolkits.”)Participants review each outcome Ask to evaluate the outcomes (how would you rate these?)How would you teach (prepare instruction) this outcome?How would you measure this outcome? Goal: Create measureable and accessible set of objectives, instruction, and assessment

  • 70-80% students said liked being exposed & would like to learn more online resources65 % will continue to use resources presentedWord of mouth….. I get it now… alternate mode for comprehension/thinking & processing info intellectually & kinestheticallyDeaf ODS student support alternate mode of presentation f/ Lg styles & engaging activity for deeper Lg & critical thinking
