Kamloops quality teaching may 2014

  1. 1. Quality Teaching in Inclusive Classrooms and Schools Kamloops   Performance  Network  Series   May  16,  2014   Faye  Brownlie  
  2. 2. Learning Intentions •  I  can  explain  UDL  and  BD.   •  I  can  idenGfy  powerful  feedback  in  my  pracGce   and  can  see  how  to  provide  it  to  all  students  in   each  class.   •  I  can  plan  with  ALL  in  mind.   •  I  have  a  plan  to  try  something  new  to  me  in   my  classroom.      
  3. 3. The teeter totter kids kids curriculum
  4. 4. Universal Design for Learning MulGple  means:   -­‐to  tap  into  background  knowledge,  to  acGvate   prior  knowledge,  to  increase  engagement  and   moGvaGon   -­‐to  acquire  the  informaGon  and  knowledge  to   process  new  ideas  and  informaGon   -­‐to  express  what  they  know.                        Rose  &  Meyer,  2002  
  5. 5. Access not accommodate or adapt
  6. 6. Backwards Design •  What  important  ideas  and  enduring   understandings  do  you  want  the  students  to   know?   •  What  thinking  strategies  will  students  need  to   demonstrate  these  understandings?                      McTighe  &  Wiggins,  2001  
  7. 7. Feedback •  Read  the  following  4  quotes   •  Choose  the  one  which  resonates  with  you  the   most   •  Talk  to  a  partner  about  your  choice  and  why   you  chose  it   •  Describe  what  this  looks  like  in  your  class  
  8. 8. Effec%ve  feedback  occurs   during  the  learning,  while   there  is  s%ll  %me  to  act  on  it.       Jan  Chappuis   Feedback  is  not  advice,  praise,  or   evalua%on.    Feedback  is  informa%on  about   how  we  are  doing  in  our  efforts  to  reach  a   goal.       Grant  Wiggins   The  most  powerful  single   influence  enhancing   achievement  is  feedback.   Dylan  Wiliam   The  primary  goal  of  feedback  is  to  improve   the  future  possibili%es  for  each  individual   learner  and  for  the  learning  community.       Peter  Johnston  
  9. 9. •  Quality  feedback  is  needed,  not  just  more  feedback   •  Students  with  a  Growth  Mindset  welcome  feedback   and  are  more  likely  to  use  it  to  improve  their   performance   •  Oral  feedback  is  much  more  effecGve  than  wri[en   •  The  most  powerful  feedback  is  provided  from  the   student  to  the  teacher  
  10. 10. “Know thy impact.” Visible  Learning  for  Teachers     Maximizing  Impact  on  Learning     John  Ha`e,  2012 Is what you are doing, getting you what you want?
  11. 11. Do your students receive individual feedback from you in every class?
  12. 12. Powerful feedback to build a sense of agency •  What  do  you  know  how  to  do?   •  Where  are  you  ge`ng  stuck?   •  How  does  that  connect  to  what  we  did   yesterday?  Or….?   •  What  do  you  remember  about…?   •  Bri[any  Stockley,  gr.  11/12  math,  Centennial   Secondary  
  13. 13. •  What  angle  (between  0  and  360)   – is  in  the  second  quadrant  and  a  sine  =  0.23?   – Sketch  the  quadrants  and  tell  me  what  you  know.   – Which  is  the  second  quadrant?   – What  do  you  know  about  the  second  quadrant?   – What  do  you  know  about  sine?  
  14. 14. Powerful feedback to build a sense of agency •  I  see  you  know  how  to  write  the  beginning  of   that  word….   •  Can  you  show  me  a  word  you  took  a  risk  at   spelling/using?   •  Circle  your  2  most  powerful  words/phrases.   •  I  bet  you’re  proud  of  yourself.   •  Which  part  are  you  sure  about,  and  which  part   are  you  not  sure  about?  
  15. 15. Increasing engagement and oral language •  Heritage  Woods  Secondary  with  Lauren  O’Leary  in  grade  11   physics   •  Groups  of  4   •  Building  background  knowledge:   –  QuesGon   –  Spring  scale   •  Created  definiGon  together   •  Think  aloud  with  formula   •  One/two  class  pracGce  problems  with  think  aloud   •  Try  more  pracGce  problems  in  pairs  or  independently   •  Individual  feedback   •  Ticket  out  the  door:    Learning  outcome  for  closure:    I  can   apply  Fg  =  m*g  and  explain  my  thinking  
  16. 16. •  What  is  mass?   •  What  is  weight?   •  What  is  the  difference  between  the  two?  
  17. 17. •  Mass     –  Ma[er  –  how  much  stuff  we  are  made  up  of   –  Scalar  (no  direcGon)   –  Constant   –  Measured  in  kg   •  Weight     –  Vector  (has  direcGon)   –  Depends  on  where  you  are  in  the  universe  -­‐  force  of   gravity   –  Measured  in  Newtons  
  18. 18. PLO:   Solve  a  variety  of  problems  involving  the   relaGonship  between  mass,  gravitaGonal  field   strength,  and  force  due  to  gravity.   Learning  Goal:  Understand  the  conceptual  side   and  apply  it.   Teaching  Goal:    Make  lesson  accessible  and   interacGve.  
  19. 19. Fg  =  m*g   Expand  the  sentence.   Think  aloud  with  your  reasoning.  
  20. 20. A Primary Writing Prompt: the grab bag •  4  items  in  a  bag,  kids  with  a  paper  with  4   boxes   •  Pull  out  1  item  at  a  Gme,  explore  how  it  might   be  used  in  a  story   •  Kids  draw  how  the  item  might  be  used   •  Repeat  with  each  item  with  kids  drawing  both   items  in  2nd  box,  …   •  In  4th  box,  either  draw  all  4  items  or  begin  to   write  their  story

  29. 29. Big Ideas of the PNS – Teaching  counts!     •  Our  instrucGonal  choices  impact  significantly  on   student  learning   •  We  teach  responsively   – All  kids  can  learn  and  we  know  enough  collecGvely   to  teach  all  kids!   •  An  unwavering  belief  that  everyone  has  the  right  to  be   included  socially,  emoGonally,  and  intellectually  
  30. 30. Your  Plan  –  20  minutes  team  planning   •  What  will  you  try?   •  Who  will  you  work  with?   •  How  will  you  know  that  what  you  are  doing  is   making  a  difference?
