  4. 5. Hucrest Elementary Kindergarten The most important thing for me has been the review/reminder of effective teaching practices…things we’ve all known. It’s been a valid-action of things we do well, and I’ve appreciated the modeling and practice of Cary and Lee on such techniques as think time, go-around-1 protocol, etc. -Kindergarten teacher- Mrs. Biethan Mrs. Nelson, Mrs. Biethan
  5. 6. Hucrest Elementary First Grade Although many of us resisted change, I feel that my teaching has improved in several areas. I see great benefit in the private think time. This is a strategy I’ve always used and I appreci-ated the acknowledgment. The group discourse is something I resisted mostly because it can send 1st graders off in so many directions. However, I have experienced good results using this strategy this year. Going through the lesson-planning framework forced me to pre-think a lesson that is so scripted that I don’t usually put a lot of thought into the outcome I want. The information I received from the lesson was more than usual. -1st grade teacher Mrs. Lindbloom Mrs. Lindbloom, Mrs. Phelps
  6. 7. Hucrest Elementary Second Grade I really focus no on giving students time to think and share ideas. I celebrate ideas and value ideas even if they are off track. I also try to make students feel safe in making mistakes. I have learned a lot about selecting lessons, sequencing them and making sure I have a clear goal for my lesson. -2nd Grade teacher, Mrs. Price Mrs. Holborow, Mrs. Price, Mrs. Rudolf
  7. 8. Hucrest Elementary Third Grade *Private Think time-Organize Share Time *Teaching Protocols is so important so that discourse is productive *Incorporating core mathematical ideas before teaching *Doing the Math -3rd grade teacher Mrs. Ferraz Mrs. Northcraft, Mrs. Ferraz, Mrs. Cermak-Rudolf
  8. 9. Hucrest Elementary Fourth Grade I think the thing that most impacted my teaching is the go-around protocols. I really like the way it involves all the students. They each have to participate, but if they are really stuck they can get help from others’ ideas instead of being put o n the spot. The kids also each have a particular job to do, which gives them more ownership in the whole process. It can also be used in all subject areas, not just math. Another thing I appreci-ated about the OMLI experience was focusing on the actual goal for each lesson. I think we all instinctively know where we are going, but if I am purposefully sequencing with an outcome in mind I think my lesson is more productive. -4th grade teacher, Mrs. Byrd Mrs. Chavez, Mrs. Byrd, Mrs. Gore
  9. 10. Hucrest Elementary Fifth Grade For me, OMLI has made teaching math more meaningful. I now understand that creating discourse amongst the students is important in order for them to thoroughly understand a concept. Asking genuine questions of students is helpful. -5th grade teacher, Mrs. Cooper Mrs. Cooper, Mr. Hall, Mrs. Fitzgerald
  10. 11. <ul><li>Things that have made an impact on me over the years were: </li></ul><ul><li>Honoring diversity and student answers, even if they went about things differently or had the wrong answer. </li></ul><ul><li>Introducing vocabulary and using it so they understand those terms when they hear them in other classes. </li></ul><ul><li>Love the way this enables students to share with others without much nervousness, they like it. It really extends their thinking. </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>-Special Education Teacher- Mrs. Jenkins </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul>Hucrest Elementary Special Education
