Shifting the Cognitive Load & Building Student Academic Agency
Saturday, April 4th, 2:40pm - 3:55pm - Session III
Participants in this session will explore strategies that will enable them to establish classroom conditions that build students’ capacity to process information independently. The facilitator will share cognitive routines and structures that help students think deeply, make connections, and support productive struggle. Classroom video with exemplars of teachers coaching positive academic mindset, providing expanded “processing time”, and using open-ended prompts are highlights of this session.
