    • Graduation Portfolio Modules Modules Module 1 What is GPS? Module 2 What are Performance Outcomes? Module 3 How are Performance Outcomes Connected to Our Standards? Module 4 What kind of Instruction Supports our Work? Module 5 How do I Design Performance Tasks? Module 6 How do we Design Units that Support this Work? Module 7 What makes a High Quality Unit? Module 8 How do we give Meaningful Feedback to Students? Module 9 How do we connect this GPS work to our work across the network? Module 10 How do Students Manage the Process?
    • Overview of the GPS Learning System Module 1
    • Objectives
      • Participants will be able to answer:
      • 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)?
      • 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.

      The Call for Global Competencies
    • Introduction
      • How does the Graduate Profile help our students know what is expected of them?
    • What is the Graduate Portfolio System?
      • The GPS helps schools set clear expectations for students and teachers about what kind of work students should complete to demonstrate they are college ready and globally competent.
    • Graduate Portfolio System
    • Rubrics Graduate Portfolio System Performance Tasks: Demonstrate a student’s knowledge and thinking in relation to the GPS performance expectations. Tasks are designed to be seamlessly embedded in the curriculum taught by the teacher Curriculum Frameworks Units Performance Tasks Formative Summative Expectations Performance Outcomes Graduate Profile
    • Philosophy and Vision Clear expectations with a focus on 1) college readiness and 2) global competencies helps students and teachers succeed
    • Global Leadership Performance Outcomes
      • There are Performance Outcomes for:
      • Global Leadership
      • Mathematics
      • Social Sciences
      • English Language Arts
      • Arts
      • Scientific Inquiry
      • Scientific Literacy
      • World Languages
    • Rubrics Accompany All Performance Outcomes
    • How does GPS connect to other initiatives?
      • When fully implemented, the GPS provides a clear understanding of what students should know and be able to do upon graduation.
      • Implementation helps align curriculum, instruction, and assessments for a global focus.
      • Students and teachers know
      • what to expect and
      • what kind of work is needed.
      Links to the Graduate Profile
    • Links to the Design Matrix
      • Vision, mission and school culture
      • Learning outcomes
      • Curriculum, assessment and instruction
      • School organization and governance
      • Professional learning communities
      • Family and community partnerships
      Implementing GPS will help pull together various elements of the design matrix:
    • How does the GPS connect to what we already do?
      • 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?
    • Classroom Follow-up
      • How will we communicate these ideas to the student?
        • Advisory?
        • Content area courses?
        • Schoolwide?
    • Online Support
