Before our training begins, please complete the following:
“Knowledge Rating Handout”
Directions: Make a checkmark in the appropriate column based on your knowledge of the each word.
Our training today will include the following broad topics:
How do you think the focus on college and work readiness will change schools in Kentucky and your school in particular?
Nuts & Bolts of SB1
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.
Using your individual “Knowledge Rating” sheet completed prior to today’s training, do the following:
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.
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:
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.
