About the Author    -   PowerPoint   -   Video Recording


MAC Reads! is a statewide assessment professional learning opportunity.  Regional sites convene and host study groups and individuals are also welcome to read and learn 

independently. Readers convene March 7, 2016 4:00-5:00 p.m. for a real time webinar with the author, Susan Brookhart.  The title, for 2016, is Formative Classroom Walkthroughs.  A study guide is provided blow to facilitate your learning, and MAC will support your efforts with resources on our website.  

Formative walkthroughs are designed to advance the learning of all parties in the school, administrators, teachers and students. They use the same research-based formative learning processes that raise student achievement by focusing on three powerful sources of evidence, knowing where learning is headed, having a clear understanding of where it is now and using up-to-the-minute evidence to decide what to do next to improve understanding (Black & Wiliam, 1998; Moss & Brookhart, 2009, 2012). The formative walkthrough process is grounded in a learning target theory of action to promote educational decisions based on what students are actually doing in their daily lessons to produce evidence of their learning. 

The highlighted book is:
