  • This slide is for display to the audience to show them how they will vote on your polls in your presentation. You can remove this slide if you like or if the audience is already comfortable with texting and/or voting with Poll Everywhere.Sample Oral Instructions:Ladies and gentlemen, throughout today’s meeting we’re going to engage in some audience polling to find out what you’re thinking, what you’re up to and what you know. Now I’m going to ask for your opinion. We’re going to use your phones to do some audience voting just like on American Idol.So please take out your cell phones, but remember to leave them on silent. You can participate by sending a text message.This is a just standard rate text message, so it may be free for you, or up to twenty cents on some carriers if you do not have a text messaging plan. The service we are using is serious about privacy. I cannot see your phone numbers, and you’ll never receive follow-up text messages outside this presentation. There’s only one thing worse than email spam – and that’s text message spam because you have to pay to receive it!

    14. 14. UBD REVIEWWhat does addressing Essential Questionsand Enduring Understandings “look like” inthe MCL classroom?
    15. 15. Enduring Understandings• EUs focus on what we want students to “understand and be able to use several years from now, after they have forgotten the details” (Wiggins & McTighe p. 342)• NOTE!!! A unit can have overarching and topical EUs and EQs
    16. 16. Enduring Understanding,Yes or No?• “The ability to express one’s feelings increases one’s feeling of self worth and the value of his/her opinion.” “Strong and positive relationships and friendships require work.”• An important part of communication is to connect on a personal level through describing ones family and how one lives.
    17. 17. Enduring Understanding-Yes or No?• Shopping is a cultural experience. For example-- waiting in line, entering a shop, where an individual shops—all reflect culture.• Negotiating is an important part of shopping in many parts of the world.
    18. 18. Essential Questions• Promotes inquiry and uncoverage. There is not one correct answer to an EQ.• Naturally arises in everyday life, and/or “doing” the subject• Can be re-asked over time, and as a result of further learning
    19. 19. Essential Questions—Yes or No?• What do I need to know in order to describe what happened?• How do I describe what things were like? How do I talk about what I used to do?• How do I explain why I could not do something?• How do I report what someone said?• Why is it important to talk about the past?
    20. 20. Essential Question --Yes or No?• Why does a person feel it necessary to express his/her opinions, disagreement and complaints?• Why do people seek out suggestions from others and why do people want to share their suggestions?
    21. 21. Essential Question—Yes or No?• How are legends in the target culture different than those of the United States?• What are the main themes and morals of the readings?• What do the readings explain about the target culture?• What skill do I need to know in order to read in another language?
    22. 22. Essential Questions-Yes or No?• Where do the people who speak this language live?• Why do we think they settled there?• What are the main geographic features of the country?• What historical and economic consequences are due to the geography of this country?• Why do the people live where they do? What can we learn about the target culture from its geography?• Has the geography influenced the language?
    23. 23. Today’s Goal:• In response to the new teacher evaluation model, how do I connect what is happening in the classroom with Essential Questions and Enduring Understandings on the OCG?
    24. 24. Key Vocabulary• Vocabulary for each unit only includes the key vocabulary that students will acquire as a result of the unit and not an exhaustive list of every word they will learn.
    25. 25. Knowledge and Skills• Knowledge and Skills of each only includes the key knowledge and skills that students will acquire as a result of the unit and not an exhaustive list of everything that they will learn or do.
    26. 26. ACTFL Performance Standards• Time permitting…..• 10:00-11:30• You will be working with a group on Stage 1 of an upcoming unit/units. Go to the OCG. One teacher in your group will have an OCG log-in. As a group, add or edit EUs and EQs for that unit. If time permits, add knowledge, skills and key vocabulary.

    29. 29. 2:00-2:30• Post-test: Poll everywhere• Think about the responses this morning - what are our responses now?• Sit with your colleagues from your building: Share edits on OCG• Exit slips about today’s development: • One nagging question • One new learning
