  2. 2. Name Position Part I: Power UpDirections: Write your name and position at the top of this sheet. Use the next 4 minutes to write aboutone non-teaching practice that you do well (i.e. golf, piano playing, writing, etc.). What three specificpractices contributed to your success or improvement over time? How did you know you needed toimprove? Why did you take the necessary steps to improve? 2
  3. 3. Part II : Deliberate Practice and YouDirections: Read the passage below, and answer the questions.Talent Is Overrated: What Really Separates World-Class Performers from Everybody Else By Geoff Colvin “Chapter Five: What Deliberate Practice Is and Isn’t” For starters, it isn’t what most of us do when we’re ‘practicing.’Deliberate practice is characterized by several elements, each worth examining. It is activity designedspecifically to improve performance, often with a teacher’s help; it can be repeated a lot; feedback onresults is continuously available; it’s highly demanding mentally, whether the activity is purely intellectual,such as chess or business-related activities, or heavily physical, such as sports; and it isn’t much fun. Thestory of the Polgar sisters is a particularly dramatic illustration of deliberate practice because it highlightsthese principles so clearly.Laszlo Polgar, a Hungarian educational psychologist, formed the view in the 1960s that great performersare made, not born. His research persuaded him that the greatest performers had all been made to focusand work on their field of eventual achievement from an early age, and he believed he understood theprocess well enough that he could make it happen himself. He wrote a book about how to do it. He andhis wife Klara, a Hungarian-speaking school teacher in the Ukraine, had three girls and devoted their lives toan experiment—to turn their children into champion chess players.The Polgars had three daughters: Susan, Judit, and Sophia. Susan was four when the experiment began. Allthree daughters were homeschooled—the parents quit their jobs to devote themselves to the work—andthe schooling consisted largely of chess instruction. The family accumulated a library of ten thousand chessbooks. A giant pre-computer-age filing system of index cards cataloged previous games and potentialopponents. The daughters learned other subjects as well; the Hungarian authorities insisted that they allpass regular exams in school subjects. But chess was the main thing—hours and hours of it every day. Theresults: At age seventeen, Susan became the first woman to qualify for what was then called the Men’sWorld Championship. She qualified but was not allowed to compete because of her gender. When Susanwas nineteen, Sophia fourteen, and Judit twelve, they competed as a team in the Women’s Olympiad andscored Hungary’s first-ever victory against the soviets, becoming national heroes. At age twenty-one,Susan became the first woman ever to be named a grand master, the highest rank in world chess. Soonthereafter, Judit became a grand master at age fifteen, the youngest person of either sex ever to win thedesignation, beating Bobby Fischer’s previous record by a few months. As of this writing Judit is the world’snumber 1 woman player, and for years she ranked consistently in the top ten of all players worldwide. 3
  4. 4. Writing Directions: Read the questions, and answer all of them in sentences or bullet points.1. According to Colvin, what is deliberate practice? What does it entail? What is it designed to do?2. How did Lazlo and Klara Polgar use deliberate practice to separate their daughters from everybody else?3. How do you think deliberate practice in school-wide consistency will shift Dibert’s school culture from good to great? 4
  5. 5. Efficiency and Dibert’s Morning RoutinesDirections: After several observations of Dibert’s morning routine, it was observed that not all classes during firstblock begin on time. Determine the amount of instructional time wasted weekly, monthly and annually if classesbegin 5 minutes late, 10 minutes late, etc. INSTRUCTIONAL TIME WASTED TIMEFRAME ROUTINE Daily Weekly Monthly YTD (Minutes x1) (Daily x5) (Weekly x4) (Monthly x8) Checkpoint/Breakfast/Recess 5 min 8:10-9:30 /Beginning of 1st Block (Late starts 8:15) Checkpoint/Breakfast/Recess 10 min 8:10-9:30 /Beginning of 1st Block (Late starts 8:20) Checkpoint/Breakfast/Recess 15 min 8:10-9:15 /Beginning of 1st Block (Late starts 8:25) Checkpoint/Breakfast/Recess 20 min 8:10-9:15 /Beginning of 1st Block (Late starts 8:30)If classes begin late, it is usually the result of ___________________________________________________ .Now review the list of morning routines below that have an effect on instructional time.Explain what needs to happen to ensure that our classes begin on time. 5
