Most HSE test questions are at Webb’s Depth of Knowledge Levels 2 and 3. This professional development will explore how we can help our students successfully solve these cognitively challenging questions. Presenters will share teaching strategies for expanded learning and reaching learners at multi levels. In addition, it will focus on differentiated instructional strategies and goal setting to help learners find high school equivalency success. Participants will learn an evidence-based teaching strategy, the think aloud, that shows students how to think through these tricky test questions.
