In this interactive session, you'll experience a new, low-lift peer feedback strategy & how to use it to help your students prepare for the AP exam. We’ll try out 3 free activities that you’ll be able to use with your students the next day using GSuite tools & a new tool called Short Answer, then brainstorm how to apply them in your classroom.
In the process, we’ll learn how comparative judgment can be used to increase engagement, develop important SEL skills, and (most pressingly) get your students ready for rapidly approaching AP exams. The session will be useful in any AP course but will be most relevant to natural sciences and humanities-focused courses. (i.e English Language and Composition, English Literature and Composition, Comparative Gov & Politics, European History, Human Geography, Psychology, US Government & Politics, US History, Modern World History, Biology, Environmental Science, & World Languages).
The session will be led by Adam Sparks, a former AP US History Teacher. Adam recently finished his master's degree in Learning Design & Technology at Stanford where his work focused on improving formative assessment pedagogical practices through peer feedback. He is the co-founder of Short Answer.
