MoStep Madness Agenda… • Curriculum Share • Xtranormal Videos • Sketchbook Prompt • Sketchbook Discussion • MoStep Four, Can I Have a Volunteer? • The Relevance of Short-Term and Long-Term Planning and How to do it RIGHT • Break • Making Sense of it All • Artifact Brainstorm • Artistic Release
Sketchbook Prompt… List your personal short-term goals for this month. List your personal long- term goals for this year.
MoStep Four…• 1.2.4 The preservice teacher recognizes the importance of long-range planning and curriculum development and develops, implements, and evaluates curriculum based upon student, district, and state performance standards.• Performance Indicators: The preservice teacher – 126.96.36.199 selects and creates learning experiences that are appropriate for curriculum goals, relevant to learners, and based upon principles of effective instruction (e.g., encourages exploration and problem solving, building new skills from those previously acquired); – 188.8.131.52 creates lessons and activities that recognize individual needs of diverse learners and variations in learning styles and performance; – 184.108.40.206 evaluates plans relative to long and short-term goals and adjusts them to meet student needs and to enhance learning.
MoStep Four Rubric…The pre-service teacher is aware of state and district knowledge and performance standards and considers those, as well as student needs, when planning lessons. Instructional planning and implementation consider individual student learning styles and are constructed to build student skills in developmentally appropriate ways. During implementation, the pre-service teacher demonstrates exemplary flexibility by evaluating and changing long-&short-term goals and/or instruction to meet student needs.
The Importance of Looking at the Big Picture… • Makes learning meaningful for students • Allows for deeper knowledge acquisition • Challenges teachers to look beyond their scope and sequence • Prepares students more adequately for the broader world
Short-Term Goals…• Short-term goals are ones students will achieve in the near future (e.g., in a day, within a week, or possibly within a few months)
The Consideration of Standards…The Top-Down Approach:• The National Standards• The Show-Me Standards• Common CORE• Missouri DOKs• Missouri GLEs• Your Local District Standards• Your School Standards
Making Sense of the Mess…Cress’ Approach to Standard-Based Planning:• Devise a planning system that works for you• Consider a larger period of time (e.g. a semester or a full year)• Map out the themes you would like to focus on within that period of time• Map out the lessons you would like to focus on within those particular themes
Making Sense of the Mess… • Map out the media exploration you would like to focus on within those particular lessons • Map out the resources and historical and contemporary artists you would like to utilize within each of those lessons • Take a close look at each individual lesson and consider which standards, GLEs and DOKs they address • Ask, “Am I doing my part?”
Let’s Look at a Concrete Example…While watching the following video jot down your notions regarding the following:• What learning occurred before this?• What learning will occur after this?• What are the short-term goals?• What are the long-term goals?
Let’s Practice…In pairs, devise a lesson plan both of you would consider implementing during student teaching. It can involve any assortment of media and technique and can be geared towards an age group of your choosing.• Summarize the lesson• Summarize your short-term goals• Summarize your long-term goals• List the National Standards you will address
Artifact Brainstorm… Now, let’s brainstorm some ways we can demonstrate our newfound knowledge.
