Posted on: May 2nd, 2016 by admin

3-IMG_4660Bi-Cultural Day School middle school teacher Erin Hupal has recently been selected to present at the Association for Middle Level Education (AMLE) annual conference, which takes place in October in Austin, Texas. Hupal’s topic which she will be presenting is Creative Assessments for the 21st Century and she will be speaking about developing a projects-based, differentiated learning model to assess student progress and understanding rather than basic standardized testing. “This is a huge honor for me and I am so humbled,” said Hupal. “Providing the means for students to express their competency and understanding of class content through differentiated outlets is very important to me and I’m looking forward to discussing this topic with other middle-school teachers across the country.”

Hupal teaches social studies to 7th and 8th graders at Bi-Cultural. The (AMLE) is the leading international organization advancing the education of all students ages 10 to 15 and this is the 16th year of the annual conference.
