Room:    C206     
Session:   1

Description:       
Participants will learn how to implement a Teach Like a Champion strategy called “aggressive monitoring” that allows teachers to address misconceptions in the moment. Teachers often walk around the room and use proximity to deter behaviors, but we need to be constructively checking in during independent work by lapping the room in a pre-planned path and efficient amount of time. Aggressive monitoring speeds student understanding by avoiding misconceptions about slow learning and allows you to maximize the amount of students you can reach. Participants will learn the three stages of aggressive monitoring and other TLAC strategies for setting high behavioral expectations.
