Making Superb Decisions: Understanding Patterns in Running Records to Inform Instruction
Online Professional Learning Session – This session was recorded and available for repeat viewing until August 31, 2022.
Presented by: Dr. Shari Worsfold
Running Records have the potential of effecting an upward trajectory of learning for an individual student. The power of running records is in the teachers’ knowledge of how to analyze and interpret the pattern of behaviours that have been recorded. Too often we want to teach everything, every day. Running Records help us to understand the student’s decisions, prioritize our teaching and assess the learning. In this session Dr. Worsfold will share one way of determining a pattern of response so that we can make the superb decisions that Marie Clay talked about.
