Goals
Goals Washington

What does infusing some “Practices” and “Crosscutting Concepts” look like in “my classroom”?

  • Apply the practice of Developing and UsingModels to instructional design.

  • Connect the practices called Constructing Explanations & Designing Solutions, Engaging in Argument from Evidence to Developing and UsingModels and WA State Learning Standards (ELA).

  • Develop the capacity to engage all learners in classroom discourse and the public representation of their ideas.

  • Identify an appropriate student growth goal.

Grade level groups
Grade Level Groups Washington

  • K-2

  • 3-5

  • 6-8

  • 9-12



Initial thinking model
Initial Thinking - Model Washington

  • Draw a labeled diagram that describes what you think happens to an M&M in your mouth and in your hand that supports your claim.

  • Use your best scientific explanation based on your current understanding.

  • What is happening before, during, and after the candy goes from your mouth to your hand?

  • Be prepared to share your ideas.


Competing ideas
Competing Ideas Washington

  • How does your explanation differ from others’ in the room? Or is it similar?

  • What should your model include?

Adding to our model
Adding to Our Model Washington

  • What new information can you include in your model?

    or

  • Is there anything you want to change in your model?

  • Consider…

    • What happened to the different parts of the candy?

    • What is happening at the particle level?

    • What is happening to the matter and energy?


Adding to our model sticky notes and language scaffolds

Reflecting on developing and using models
Reflecting on Developing and Using Models Washington

  • How have your ideas changed?

  • Revisit the probe. Any new insights?

  • What should students at your grade band know and be able to do with the practice of developing and using models? (Appendix F p.6)

  • Link Between Claim and Evidence


Reflecting on formative assessment
Reflecting on Formative Assessment Washington

  • Reflect on the use of the Sticky-notes and Language Scaffolds, the “Gotta-have” checklist, and your small group model:

    • as an illustration of developing and modifying models

    • as a formative assessment tool

  • Reflect on the use of the probe as an assessment tool.

Reviewing key terms
Reviewing Key Terms Washington

G!

RCW 28A.405.100

  • Student Achievement: The status of subject-matter knowledge,skills, understanding or performance at a given point in time.

  • Student Growth: The change in student achievement between two points in time.

It is student growth, not student achievement, that is relevant in demonstrating impacts teachers and principals have on students.


Exhibiting collaborative and collegial practices focused on improving instructional practice and student learning


Follow a sequence
Follow a Sequence: improving instructional practice and student learning

Determine the academic needs for the pertinent group (all-grade, one class, sub-group)

Determine which of those needs are enduring or transferable knowledge or skills

Determine which of those are in your control


Smart goal process for student growth
SMART Goal Process for Student Growth improving instructional practice and student learning


Specific
SPECIFIC improving instructional practice and student learning

  • Does the goal identify a specific area of need within the content, based on a learning standard?

  • Is the goal necessary for the next level of instruction?

  • Is the goal clearly written?


Measurable
MEASURABLE improving instructional practice and student learning

  • Does the goal identify the sources of evidence/measures that will be used to show student growth?

  • Are the sources of evidence/measures appropriate for demonstrating growth for the identified area of need?

  • Are there two or more points in time indicated?


Appropriate
APPROPRIATE improving instructional practice and student learning

  • Is the goal standards-based and directly related to the subject and students taught?

  • Does the content selected represent enduring skills, concepts or processes?


Realistic
REALISTIC improving instructional practice and student learning

  • Is the goal doable, but rigorous enough to stretch the outer bounds of what is attainable?

  • Is there a good match between the goal and the level of rigor expected in the standards addressed?


Time bound
TIME-BOUND improving instructional practice and student learning

  • Is there sufficient time within the interval of instruction to determine goal attainment?

The goal is bound by a timeline that is definitive and allows for determining goal attainment.


What should our goal be around
What should our goal be around? improving instructional practice and student learning

  • What did we learn today?

    • Developing and Using Models

    • Engaging in Argumentation From Evidence

    • Constructing Explanations

  • What are some resources to assist you?

    • Public Representations

    • Ambitious Science Teaching


Supporting your work
Supporting Your Work improving instructional practice and student learning

  • tools4teachingscience.org

  • Public representations of students’ thinking (PDF)


Getting feedback
Getting Feedback improving instructional practice and student learning

  • Pass the goals around the table

  • Each participant provides specific feedback to the writer on how to improve the goal

  • Keep passing until the goal returns to the writer

  • Once the goals are back with the author, he/she rewrites them based on feedback.

  • Shares with a partner

  • All participants select their best goal, and write it on a sticky note. Post the note on the chart.

Between now and then... improving instructional practice and student learning

  • Consider how you will monitor your students’ growth based on your written goal.

  • What strategies will you be implementing?

  • What evidence will you be able to share in January at our next meeting?
