  • NOTES TO THE TRAINER:
    For more details, see the Field Guide
    Welcome participants.
    Provide a brief overview of the module.
    Description: Presentation of the design and components of the GPS Learning System provides participants the basic understanding of the importance of high-quality, college ready work and how to incorporate expectations for global competencies.
  • Review session objectives.
    By the end of the session, participants will be able to answer the following questions: Activate Prior Knowledge
    How does the GPS connect to what we already do?
    How does the GPS connect to other ISSN work?
    What is the Graduate Portfolio System (GPS)?
  • Use the following activity to allow participants to process the quote on the slide.
    One option for leading the discussion:
    Place participants in groups of 4.
    Ask participants to read the quote on the slide and jot down 3-5 words or phrases that come to mind.
    Ask participants to share one idea at a time around the circle. Tell participants to hold off on discussions until all words/phrases are shared.
    Participant 1: 1st word/phrase
    Participant 2: 1st word/phrase
    Participant 3: 1st word/phrase
    Participant 4: 1st word/phrase
    Participant 1: 2nd word/phrase
    Etc...
    Ask participants to discuss any interesting ideas or ideas that were repeated.
    Circulate throughout the room and share key ideas with the group at large.
  • Give participants an opportunity to review the graduate profile.
    In small groups, ask participants to discuss the following question:
    How does the Graduate Profile help our students know what is expected of them?
    Note that the participants’ level of familiarity with the Graduate Profile will determine how much time to invest in this section of the training.
  • Tell participants they will now have an opportunity to discuss the first driving question of the training What is the Graduate Portfolio System?
    The GPS is a system of assessment used to help students and teachers track global competencies and college readiness.
  • At the core of the GPS is the concept of helping students graduate Globally Competent and College Ready
    The GPS brings together
    A balanced instructional model
    Performance Tasks and Engaging Units of Study
    Formative and Summative Assessments
    Student Centered Learning
  • The graduate profile and the performance outcomes help clarify expectation for students.
    Based on those expectations, teachers use the results from the assessment tasks to give students feedback about their work.
    These results from the assessment tasks inform the curriculum and help teachers make decisions about how to move through curricular frameworks and select units most appropriate to student needs.
  • The Performance Outcomes and the Rubrics are related.
    The graduate profile provides a summary of the expectations for students to be college ready and globally competent.
    The performance outcomes emerged from the graduate profile with more specific details about how the profile looks in each content area.
    The rubrics provide teachers and students more specific information about how the student work or performance indicates the student’s proficiency in the performance outcomes.
  • Here is an example of a performance outcome. Note that each performance outcome has key elements and additional details within the key elements. The global leadership performance outcome may be used by all teachers, regardless of content area.
    Subsequent modules will focus specifically on the performance outcomes in all content areas.
  • Rubrics for each performance outcome identify college ready and global competency skills.
    Rubrics can be used to provide qualitative feedback on both large projects or smaller performance tasks.
    Each content area has different scoring dimension based on the need of that content area.
    This is an example of a section from a language arts rubric.
    If time permits, ask participants to review the rubric from their content area.
    Tell participants to identify any criteria on the rubric that is similar to what they currently assess and any criteria that is new or that may be specific to the GPS.
    Let participants know that one of the subsequent modules will focus specifically on the rubrics.
  • Tell participants they will now have an opportunity to discuss the second driving question of the training How does GPS connect to other work?
    Activate participants prior knowledge and/or let them know about the following resources
    Design Matrix
    Graduate Profile
    Sessions or experiences from the national conference
    Performance outcomes
    Rubrics
    International benchmarking
    Remind participants that they are part of a national network of schools and that they will have opportunities to share best practices and ideas around the GPS.
  • Note linkages between the ISSN Graduate Profile and the Graduate Portfolio System.
    Ask participants to examine the Graduate Profile and review the information about each of the four attributes.
    Display four pieces of chart paper around the room. Each piece of chart paper should be labeled with one of the four attributes from the Graduate Profile.
    Ready for College
    Knowledge Required in a Global Era
    Skilled for Success in a Global Environment
    Connected to the World
    Place participants in four groups. Ask each group to rotate from station to station identifying their current practice related to developing each attribute. After the last rotation, ask each group to share out the findings for the attribute at their station. Ask participants to identify patterns of strength in current practice across attributes. Ask participants to set goals for professional growth to further develop attributes.
  • The design matrix helps describe schools who successfully implement curriculum and instruction that supports college ready and globally competent students. The design matrix aligns with the GPS implementation plan including the graduate profile and performance outcomes.
  • Tell participants they will now have an opportunity to discuss the third driving question of the training How does the GPS connect to what we already do?
    In small groups, ask participants to discuss the following questions:
    What do we already do to set expectations around graduation?
    How do we currently collect “showcase” student work schoolwide?
    Where do we go from here?

    5. 5. Despite America’s status as an economic, military and cultural superpower, we risk becoming narrowly confined within our own borders, lacking the understanding of the world around us that is essential to our continued leadership role in the world community. The day has long passed when a citizen could afford to be uninformed about the rest of the world and America’s place in that world.
