Pair up, share out• Name?• Where do you teach/what grade level?• What experience do you have with standards based reporting or grading?
What are standards?• Each discipline/course level teacher collaborated to create overarching skills• Over the course of the year, students would demonstrate ability in these specific skills• Students would be asked to reflect on their progress in developing these skills• Twice per year, teachers give feedback to students on their progress in developing these skills
Math Standards• A- Computation and Operations- Students can perform computation and operations to the appropriate level of the course.• B- Visual- Students can visually represent mathematical situations.• C- Verbal and Written Communication Skills- Students can clearly communicate mathematical processes.• D- Problem Solving- Students can choose and apply various problem solving strategies to model and solve a wide variety of problems.
Where Does Evidence Come From?• Standards-Based Grading on Assessments• Re-takes/re-assessments of standards throughout quarter• Projects
Social Studies Standards• Sources: Effectively analyze a variety of primary source documentsExample: Primary source analysis sheets• Research: Research independentlyExample: Annotated Bibliography
Social Studies Standards• Perspective: Express the impact of perspective and bias in historyExample: Unit centered around defining “war”• Discussion: Meaningfully contribute to classroom discussionsExample: Discussion groups & discussion guides• Content: Evaluate the connections between the modern world and historyExample: Unit on slavery with a project on modern-day slavery
Small Groups: Shuffle• 1) You have some form of standards based grading or reporting, and you would like to tinker.• 2) You do not use standards, but you are interested.• 3) You want to expand standards to a whole department or school.
