In collaboration with representatives from the Kentucky Department of Education, Future Ready Assessment Team, Expeditionary Learning Fellows and the Appalachian Leadership Lab, the Kentucky Valley Educational Cooperative has committed to supporting the implementation of the state science assessment system. A major component of this system is through course tasks. In this first video of an upcoming series, Johnny Belcher and Katrina Slone facilitate a conversation with Chris Bentley and Teresa Emmert of KDE about their work across the state with science through course tasks. Teachers and administrators will find the discussion helpful before and even if they have already started this year’s pilot.
A second video on Frequently Asked Questions has also been posted that can work as a companion to the Getting Started Video or it can stand alone. We hope these initial videos can serve to help all of us as we pilot through course tasks for the first time this year. During the month of February we plan to collect footage of teachers and students involved in the Planning, Facilitating and Post Task Analysis phases of the implementation process. With this footage we can work to offer additional videos in a series aimed to help us all look closer at each phase of the process and learn from each other as we move forward.
