Common language glossary rationale
Common Language GlossaryRationale

At Newport Schools, we want all our staff to realize maximum results. One of our first steps towards this ultimate goal was the creation of a Common Language Glossary . The main three purposes of this resource are:

1. To provide agreed upon descriptions of the essential terms most commonly used.

2. To invite all teachers to share a common language and understanding of the terminology, purpose and processes involved in successfully implementing all aspects of SB1.

3. To open the door for everyone to hold quality instructional conversations with colleagues and to maximize the learning and teaching success of our students and staff.

Knowledge rating activity
Knowledge Rating Activity

  • Post the “Knowledge Rating” chart on the wall.

    Using your individual “Knowledge Rating” sheet completed prior to today’s training, do the following:

  • Mark the enlarged poster using one sticker for each vocabulary word.

  • Look at the completed chart.

  • Using our compiled “Knowledge Rating” chart, what are the implications?

Top 10 words to know
Top 10 Words To Know

Common Core Standards – provide a consistent, clear understanding of what students are expected to learn, so teachers and parents know what they need to do to help them. The standards are designed to be rigorous and relevant to the real world. The “core” helps students effectively inquire and make sense of important but complicated ideas, knowledge, and know how; a bridge to findings and explorations.

  • Formative assessment – generally carried out throughout a course. Formative assessment is used to aid learning and provides feedback on a student’s work and would not necessarily be used for grading purposes.

Learning Targets - Statements of what we want students to learn and be able to do. Your learning targets should clearly state what you expect students to know and be able to do as a result of the lesson.

5 types of Learning Targets:

  • Knowledge Targets

  • Reasoning Targets

  • Skill Targets

  • Product Targets

  • Dispositional Targets

  • Instructional Relevance - a teacher’s ability to facilitate learning experiences that are meaningful to students and prepare them for their futures.

  • Learning Climate - a safe environment supported by the teacher in which high, clear expectations and positive relationships are fostered; active learning is promoted

Scaffolding – specialized teaching strategies geared to support learning when students are first introduced to a new subject. Scaffolding gives students a context, motivation, or foundation from which to understand the new information that will be introduced during the coming lesson. (see glossary for list of strategies)

Summative Assessment - assessment generally carried out at the end of a course or project.

  • Monitor- Obtaining reliable and ongoing information for making continuing adjustments to instruction, based on identified academic and behavior

  • Assessment FOR Learning – assessments that happen while learning is still taking place. Conducted throughout teaching and learning to diagnose student needs, plan next instructional steps, provide students with feedback they can use to improve the quality of their work, and help them feel in control of their learning.

  • Assessment OF Learning – assessments that happen after learning is supposed to have occurred to determine if it did.

Activity ~ “I Have, Who Has?

Presenter will provide directions for this activity.
