Lesson study presentation

  1. 1. Lesson Study Energy TransformationsTuesday, February 22, 2011
  2. 2. First Meeting Which GLEs are What concepts do consistently the lowest students have the most in MAP scores? matter difficulty and energy understanding? What types of activities are hardest to set up and use effectively? stationsTuesday, February 22, 2011
  3. 3. Creating a Learning Cycle Eliminating Ordering Organizing Eliminated activities Ordered activities based based on -- on which would be best prior teaching for each step in 5E learning targets process Picture Source: http://web.wnlsd.ca/rocketry/teachers.htmTuesday, February 22, 2011
  4. 4. The Learning Cycle: • Engage: Making a wet cell battery • Explore: Using motor as a generator • Explain: How to illustrate an energy transformation • Elaborate: Lab stations over transformations • Evaluate: Notebooks, discussion, ticket outTuesday, February 22, 2011
  5. 5. elaborate Decided to focus on Elaborate-- Stations Most difficult part --to make learning stations productiveTuesday, February 22, 2011
  6. 6. Second and Third Meetings Backwards Design Refining Decided on what we wanted students to be PIcture source: http://www.thegreenhead.com/imgs/giant-building-blocks-1.jpg able to understand and Eliminated stations present at the end, Refined time frame then... Set up expectations for notebooks/activities Made procedures for doing the lab activitiesTuesday, February 22, 2011
  7. 7. Fewer stations-- 2 of each station students discuss after each activity and compare data/notes/ drawingsTuesday, February 22, 2011
  8. 8. First Lesson Student WorkTuesday, February 22, 2011
  9. 9. 4th Meeting: Debrief Ticket Out Discussion Questions Time Frame Adjustment to Stations Ticket Out: formative Added Discussion Time Frame: Trouble with solar car assessment of student Questions: needed more time for and lighting learning--where to go assist students in activity part next focusing when sharing eliminated cars Needed less time for individual reflection on added structure to discussion had students set panels what they did conversations up in series --heat as byproduct Picture source: http://www.etftrends.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/09/ Changes_next_exit.jpgTuesday, February 22, 2011
  10. 10. Second LessonTuesday, February 22, 2011
  11. 11. Science Students SucceedingTuesday, February 22, 2011
  12. 12. Finishing Lesson Study Making positive changes permanent Energy Transformation Learning Evaluated second lesson Cycle Discussed the effectiveness of changes we made Finished editing learning cycleTuesday, February 22, 2011
  13. 13. What Next?Tuesday, February 22, 2011
  14. 14. Next Lesson Study • Considerations • 2 hours teaching time Time 2 hours pre-obser vation meetings 2 hours post-observation Know where you are debriefing going to meet/# of • Logistics 11-12 hours plan time from start to finish meetingsTuesday, February 22, 2011
