  1. 1. VIT Full Registration by Esther Holt 2013 Thursday, 12 December 13
  2. 2. My Task I chose my RATW class *Choose a specific class and 4 - 6 week period to implement an ‘action inquiry’ on an area of my teaching. Reasons chosen, cohort description and factors affecting learning can be found on page 4 of my VIT document. Thursday, 12 December 13 Weeks 5 - 10 of Term 3: during the study of Human Rights & Religion
  3. 3. *High level literacy *Low level Literacy *High engagement *Low engagement/ motivation *English as a second language Thursday, 12 December 13

  5. 5. Specific Content Can be found on pages 8 - 13 of my VIT document, with colour coding as to the building of particular skills or areas of the curriculum Thursday, 12 December 13 Adhered to VELS requirements, and expectations of CSHS
  6. 6. Learning Outcomes and Assessment Primary questions, secondary questions, formative and summative assessment Details can be found on page 14 of my VIT document Thursday, 12 December 13 What is the importance and framework of human rights post WWII, and how has this framework shaped the second half of the 20th century and today?
  7. 7. Can be found on page 15 Question for Inquiry Changes Purpose Introduction Linking Pace Narrative Thursday, 12 December 13 Activities
  8. 8. Hypothesis... If I do this.... Then the outcome might be..... resulting in........ If I clearly explain what is required in the transition to the next activity, including the timeframe of completion, then the outcome might be that students will be more engaged and be able to discuss the topics for longer; therefore producing more within the timeframes. Thursday, 12 December 13 If I set clear expectations at the beginning of every class, then the outcome might be that students are actively listening and therefore more likely to engage further and produce high quality work.

  13. 13. Change of focus.... Page 23 To discussion and questioning If I regularly encourage and facilitate active discussion, then the outcome might be that students can ‘make sense’ of information better, forming opinions and analysing topics, and are therefore more likely to engage further and produce higher quality work. Thursday, 12 December 13 If I ask questions that encourage ‘higherorder thinking’ in students, then the outcome might be that the students are able to discuss the topics for longer, producing more within the timeframes and therefore be able to ‘synthesise’ and ‘evaluate’ more often, rather than simply ‘knowing’ and ‘comprehending’.
  14. 14. Repeat Action plan... Actions: •Prepare possible questions that are higher up the bloom’s level before entering the classroom on the topics I know we will be covering. •Create a ‘friendly’ and non-judgmental environment in my classes, encouraging students to have a ‘go’ at talking about things they believe they don’t know enough about. •Set aside and allow for specific times for discussion. More professional reading and learning Thursday, 12 December 13 Repeat of Helen Timperley model
  15. 15. Focus on Blooms Aim for here Thursday, 12 December 13
  16. 16. Reflections I found general discussion quite easy, however harder to ask questions at the higher levels. However, once debriefed with Cath McMahon, I realised that many of my questions could be improved easily with some simple re-wording. Thursday, 12 December 13 Difficult to come up with a lot of higherorder questions prior to lesson

  19. 19. Overall, I am extremely happy with the results, as they show that my inquiry was successful, yet still giving me areas to work on in the future. Areas I’m interested in for the future: Continuing to as higher order thinking questions, facilitate discussion, differentiation, Checking student understanding Thursday, 12 December 13
