  • The reason we don’t see implementation as a result of our PD efforts is because we rarely create the conditions and provide the support for Type 4 professional development.Setting up learning teams…grade-level / content teams and providing them the time to create lessons, deliver the lessons and then discuss/refine lessons is Type 4 PD. We can’t just set up the teams, provide the time, then do nothing more. As leaders, we must attend their meetings, require products (lessons, plans for students, assessments, etc.), so that there is an accountability in place.Bruce Joyce and Beverly Showers wrote a book, Student Achievement through Staff Development; it details Type 4 PD. The book doesn’t call it Type 3…it talks about setting up peer coaching and all of the elements of what we have called Type 4.

  • I have come up with some questions etc for this activity. I was thinking ten for each one. Not sure though. Also we might want to have some cards that are not any of the above and they have to be pulled out. Add a challenging element to the game I think it is pretty straightforward now as to what is what. Doc is called game cardsRun a game with index cards that have to be sorted and arranged on a large stage one diagram on the charts. Questions are interdisciplinary

  • The chart is hard to add in. Can we just make reference to the booklet where they will have a copy and on this slide talk about why we do a checklist or self test?
  • See handout pg.

  • Elizabeth-Will add this in tonight. I also will email all of the teachers and ask about the unit they want to look at.Teachers broken up by classes.Ask your UbD groups, which unit they would like to reflect on, we print and have available on the day.Teach a reflection protocol for Stage One.

  • 13. Design Checklist-Stage One
    Assess your work on:
  • Activity Four: Wow and Wonder
    • A protocol for examining UbD work
    • 18. Purpose is to gain useful insight into our work
  • Preview of Stage Two - Assessment
    “Assessment of understanding requires evidence of the student’s ability to apply their learning in new, varied, and realistic situations.”
    Do our performance tasks do this?
    Are we assessing for understanding?
    Can students answer our Essential Questions?
    This and more coming next quarter!
