Gordon Brown“<br />We ALL Know this at the Middle Level….“Programs don’t change kids, relationships do…nothing matters more to a child than a one-to-one steady relationship with an adult who cares about that child.”William E. Milliken, President and Founder Cities In Schools Incorporated<br />Our Goal as Teachers“The goal of teachers is to meet all students at their starting points and to move each one along a continuum of growth as far and as quickly as possible. Learning has no ceiling.”Tomlinson & Kalbfleisch, 1998<br />In other words, It is the job of ALLteachers to provide learning opportunities for every child!<br />The Top“7” Needs of Middle School StudentsMust socialize & move often—active learning2.Must feel safe—need routine & consistency3.Must use their ownway of learning & have success at initial tasks<br />More of the Top“7” Needs of Students4.Must express their emotions-argue/challenge5.Must learn to cooperate and to make good decisions6.Must believe they are normal & are an important part of the school—they belong! <br />The most important characteristic…7.Must have adult role models who understand & love their unique characteristics!<br />If These Are Middle School Kids, Ask Yourself…Does your teaching (and your school’s program) reflect knowledge of the characteristics of your students and successful schools for the 21st century?<br />As Rick Dufour tells us…“Don’t tell me you believe that all kids can learn--tellme what you’re doing about the kids who aren’t learning.”<br />“5” Key Words for Reaching ALL Learners in the 21st CenturyDifferentiationChallenge the best studentsMotivate & engagethe middle studentsMake our at-risk students believe they can do11<br />“5” Key WordsScaffolding (tiered instruction)Take students from:What they know (prior knowledge) trip, swap TOWhat they are acquainted with--journey, trade TOThe unknown (academic vocabulary) expedition, barter12<br />“5” Key Words3. Literacy is communication!Ensure that students receive explicit and systematic instruction in ALL content areas on:ListeningSpeaking ReadingWritingNumeracy Technology13<br />“5” Key Words4. Metacognition—thinking about thinkingAll content teachers must think aloud and model their thinking so students can learn to think like they do.Students must have the opportunity to share their thinking. 14<br />“5” Key Words5. Professional LearningCommunities—PLC We must talk about AIC: Assessment tells us what our students need to know and be able to do and it must guide our instruction. What Instructional strategies work best to increase student achievement?What curriculum works best with those strategies? <br />The “5” Keys to Success for ALL Students Are:1. Differentiation 2. Scaffolding3. Literacy4. Metacognition5. Professional Learning Communities (PLC)<br />'In order to transform schools successfully, educators need to navigate the difficult space between letting go of old patterns and grabbing on to new ones.' Deal<br />We Must Always RememberGood teachers can overcome bad curricula, but good curricula cannot compensate for poor teaching!<br />And Never Forget…“We all need someone who inspires us to do better than we know how.”Especially middle school kids!!!!<br />“The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing!”Walt Disney<br />As a wise lady once said…“Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending.” Maria Robinson<br />Middle Level Educators Must Never Forget…YOU Make the Difference!Thanks for joining me today.<br />North Carolina Middle School Association + Follow <br />38 views, 0 favs, 1 embed <br />Related<br />Watch WEC 52 live stream l Faber vs Mizugaki live mixed ma… 35 views <br />Game Me 897 views <br />watch wec Takeya Mizugaki vs Urijah Faber live stream 8 views <br />watch wec Takeya Mizugaki vs Urijah Faber free stream online 10 views <br />watch wec Urijah Faber vs Takeya Mizugaki online 12 views <br />watch wec Takeya Mizugaki vs Urijah Faber live online 9 views <br />watch wec Urijah Faber vs Takeya Mizugaki fights live stre… 6 views <br />watch world extreme cagefighting Urijah Faber vs Takeya Mi… 5 views <br />watch wec Urijah Faber vs Takeya Mizugaki fight stream onl… 10 views <br />watch world extreme cagefighting Urijah Faber vs Takeya Mi… 10 views <br />watch wec Takeya Mizugaki vs Urijah Faber ppv live online 3 views <br />watch wec Urijah Faber vs Takeya Mizugaki fights live stre… 7 views <br />watch wec Takeya Mizugaki vs Urijah Faber free stream online 5 views <br />watch world extreme cagefighting Urijah Faber vs Takeya Mi… <br />watch wec Takeya Mizugaki vs Urijah Faber live stream 5 views <br />watch wec Urijah Faber vs Takeya Mizugaki online <br />More by user<br />Time Well Spent 5 views <br />Schools to Watch Showcase: McGee’s Crossroads Middle Sch… 4 views <br />Increase Student Achievement through Differentiation and R… 48 views <br />Muscles Neurons Learning 6 views <br />Need More time to teach 14 views <br />Building the Relationship Between Administrators and Teach… 15 views <br />View all presentations from this user <br />About this presentation<br />Usage Rights<br />© All Rights Reserved<br />Stats<br />0 Favorites<br />0 Comments<br />0 Downloads<br />35 Views on SlideShare<br />3 Views on Embeds<br />38 Total Views<br />Embed views<br />3 views on http://ncmsa.wikispaces.com<br />Accessibility<br />View text version<br />Additional Details<br />Uploaded via SlideShare <br />Uploaded as Microsoft PowerPoint <br />Flagged as inappropriate Flag as inappropriate <br />Top of Form<br />Flag as inappropriate <br />Select your reason for flagging this presentation as inappropriate.
