Research suggests students learn best when working collaboratively. In this session, participants will explore how you can use open-ended, written-response style questions along with the cognitive expectations framework as a tool to collaboratively promote student learning, problem-solving, and higher order thinking skills. Templates and examples in Science 8, Science 10, Physics 20 and Physics 30 will be provided. Participants will learn how to create one-ended written response style questions to promote student learning. They will explore how peer feedback can be used to promote higher order thinking skills. Templates will be provided for teacher to make and design their own formative assessment/peer feedback resources.
