    Improving student engagement and mathematical understanding Improving student engagement and mathematical understanding Presentation Transcript

    • Improving Student Engagement and Mathematical Understanding
      Suzette Nielson
      Amanda Tame
      ECU 521
    • Target Question
      Can we improve student engagement and mathematical understanding through the use of varied instructional strategies and student reflection?

    • Research
      Instructional Strategies:
      Complex Instruction
      Structured groups
      Group-worthy tasks
      Assigned roles
      Student responsibility
      Group empathy
      Teacher as facilitator instead of expert
      Student Reflection
      Meta-cognition of learning process
      Creating learning goals
      Recognition of growth over time
      Personal accountability

    • Pre-Intervention Data
      Previous chapter test score
      Overall grade
      Student checklist of classroom behavior
      Teacher observations
      Other Algebra 1 teachers’ comments
      Current teaching practices
      Lack of group-worthy tasks
      Lack of student reflection
    • Examples of pre-intervention data
      Teacher observation list of “Student C”
    • Examples of pre-intervention data
      Classroom behavior and attitude reflections
    • Examples of pre-intervention data
      Other teachers’ comments on shared students behavior and attitudes
      Student B:
      “Last year, even in the midst of a chaotic class, he would sit up straight in his chair and tell me that he was listening.”
      Student C:
      “Last year, he couldn’t sit still in his seat and was always disrupting other students.”
      “This year, after 2 months, he was kicked out of the math support class.”
    • Action Plan
      Create:
      Group-worthy task
      Rubric
      Student self-assessment of group participation
      Classroom behavior/attitude reflection
      Task reflection of mathematical understanding
      Intervention Implementation:
      Assign task
      Timeline:
      2 days: work on problem
      1 day: make poster
      1 day: presentations
      1 day: self-assessment and reflections
      1 day: summative assessment (chapter test)
    • Post-Intervention Data
      Task grade by teacher
      Self-assessment of group participation
      Classroom behavior/attitude reflection
      Task reflection of mathematical understanding
      Teacher observation
      Chapter test
      Cumulative grade
    • Examples of post-intervention data
      Poster – Student C
    • Examples of post-intervention data
      Poster – Student B
    • Examples of post-intervention data
      Poster – Student A
    • Examples of post-intervention data
      Classroom behavior and attitude reflections
    • Examples of post-intervention data
      Table of pre and post scores
    • Summary
      Question: Can we improve student engagement and mathematical understanding through the use of varied instructional strategies and student reflection?
      Answer: Yes.
    • Next Steps…
      Further definition of roles within groups
      Clearer questions in checklist and task reflection
      Separation of pre and post assessments
      Student involvement in rubrics
      Clearer expectations with regards to poster presentation
