  • Start with the “Hit the target” activityLarge eight targets printed around the roomThe objectives of the day printed on the back of two of themHave people try and hit the correct targetsFlip the two targets that are our objective for the day
  • These objectives come from Pearson (Assessment Training Institute)Mention they are part of the Danielson Rubric
  • This will summarize what they have done regarding our first objective of clear targets.With the “KUD”, reference how formative assessment ties in with the Differentiation training we got last year.
  • ExamplesTell teachers to jot down one activity / lesson that they love and create learning targets for the lesson.This needs handout
  • Add three examples
  • Participants should pull out the key ideas in this statement/Participants translate slides into student friendly language/target.
  • Theirs should look something like this. Now look at your learning targets for your original lesson/activity. Are they in student friendly language?
  • Participants should pull out the key ideas in this statement/Participants translate slides into student friendly language/target.
  • Hand out Bloom’s guide sheet now.Refer to your original lesson and learning targets that you came up with. Write a Level I through Level VI goal on the handout. Turn targets over while participants are writing their levels on the handout.Then pick tables to write on targets (flipped with levels on back). Explain rules-participants will walk as a table to each level/target and put a star next to the ones that are student friendly and a question mark next to the ones that are not.Discussion
  • Share and discussKeep visible for lesson

    1. 1. Hitting the Target Kimberly Karzen, Nancy Schwerin, Annette Orrico, Marie Gillespie, Maribeth Coffey-Sears, Jeremy Vrtis PLT Formative Assessment Team
    2. 2. ONTARGET Objectives I will create a clear and understandable vision of the learning target for my students. (Strategy 1) I will be able to design lessons to focus on one learning target or aspect of quality. (Strategy 5) Seven Strategies of Assessment for Learning, Pearson Assessment Training Institute
    3. 3. ONTARGET Agenda Getting Started Opening Activity Objectives and Agenda Designing One Target Narrowing your Objective Activity Creating Clear Targets How to….. with Bloom’s Activity Visible Targets
    4. 4. ONTARGET
    5. 5. ONTARGET What is a Learning Target? “Statements of intended learning” that captures what we want students to know & be able to do.  (Also called an essential outcome.) (Chappuis, Stiggins, Chappuis, & Arter, 2012, p. 42) Chappuis, J., Stiggins, R., Chappuis, S., and Arter, J. (2012). Classroom assessment for student learning: Doing it right-Using it well. Boston: Pearson.
    6. 6. ONTARGET Have you ever… • taught a lesson and then had a student ask “what is the point?” or “why do we need to know this?”
    7. 7. ONTARGET When our learning targets are clear to us as teachers, they are also clear to our students. Learning Target (Essential Outcome) Student friendly learning target KUD
    8. 8. ONTARGET Design lessons to focus on one learning target or aspect of quality at a time. (Strategy 5) Seven Strategies of Assessment for Learning, Pearson Assessment Training Institute
    9. 9. ONTARGET • Describe one activity or lesson you love to do with your students. • Create the learning targets for that lesson. Prompt
    10. 10. ONTARGET 1. In what ways does the activity or lesson have one target that is clear for you and the students? 2. In what ways is the activity or lesson unclear for students? (no target, no clear target, too many targets, other distractions) Questions
    11. 11. ONTARGET Mathematics Students are given two parallel lines cut by a transversal. They then must label each angle pair. Students will then give me examples of each of the angle pairs. Finally students will then determine the value of each angle. Target: Make the distinction between the angle pairs. Writing One Learning Target
    12. 12. ONTARGET Art Define iconography and chronology. Identify iconography in a work of art. Use this knowledge of the iconography and chronology to apply to a specific artwork to understand it. Hypothesize why the artist made the work and what they were saying to the audience with the piece. Target: Explain the role of analyzing iconography and chronology in decoding the meaning of an artwork. Writing One Learning Target
    13. 13. ONTARGET Reflect on elements of your activity that can be improved to achieve one target that is clear. Reflect
    14. 14. ONTARGET Provide students with a clear and understandable vision of the learning target. (Strategy 1) Seven Strategies of Assessment for Learning, Pearson Assessment Training Institute
    15. 15. ONTARGET Formative Assessment Diagnostic “There is a diagnostic aspect to all formative assessment, and diagnostic information can inform both students’ studying and teacher’s teaching. The key is having a concept of the goal or learning target, which originally is the teacher’s, but which ideally the student will internalize, eventually setting his or her own goals and monitoring progress toward them.” (Sadler, 1989; Gipps, 1994)
    16. 16. ONTARGET Convert the definition into student-friendly language I understand that formative assessment is a tool used by both the teacher and student to monitor progress.
    17. 17. ONTARGET Benefits of Clear Targets for Students Provides an understanding what they are responsible for learning. “I will be able to…”
    18. 18. ONTARGET Essential Outcome: Explain the role of analyzing iconography and chronology in decoding the meaning of an artwork. Student-friendly targets: I can define iconography and chronology. I can identify iconography in a work of art. Essential Outcomes→ Learning Target→ Student-friendly targets Example in Art
    19. 19. ONTARGET Essential Outcome: Identify the five methods of proving triangles congruent. Learning Targets: I can distinguish all of the triangle congruencies. I can recommend the proper triangle congruency given visual information. Essential Outcomes→ Learning Target→ Student-friendly targets Example in Geometry

    22. 22. ONTARGET Writing Learning Targets Directions Write one learning target for each of the Bloom Levels, this does not need to be all for the same lesson, unit or class We will then write the levels on the posters around the room We will then do a gallery walk and star the clear targets and question marks on the unclear targets
    23. 23. ONTARGET Star Questioned Gallery Walk What learning targets do you think are clear? What learning targets do you think are unclear?
    24. 24. ONTARGET Do You Keep Targets Visible For The Entire Lesson? Other Suggestions?
    25. 25. ONTARGET Teach students to self- assess and set goals. Engage students in self-reflection, and let them keep track of and share their learning. Use examples and models of strong and weak work. Offer regular descriptive feedback. Teach students focused revision. Provide students with a clear and understandable vision of the learning target. Design lessons to focus on one learning target or aspect of quality at a time. 7 Strategies of Assessment of Learning
