A Shift in Teaching and Learning

The Texas Perspective

•Working at your table and using the items in the envelope marked, “The Texas Perspective on the Shift in Teaching and Learning,” categorize the items under the headings DECREASE and INCREASE.

•Be prepared to discuss as a whole group.

C/I/A-14


A shift in teaching and learning

Decrease

•Isolation

•Learning is other-directed

•Sort and select students

•Student differences are masked or acted upon when problematic

•A relatively narrow sense of intelligence prevails

•Whole-class instruction dominates

•Tests for pieces of learning

•Learning bits of information

•Time driven

•A single form of assessment

•Assessment most common at end of learning

Increase

•Collaboration and communication

•Learning is self-directed

•All students will learn

•Student differences are studied as a basis for planning

•A focus on multiple forms of intelligences is evident

•Many instructional arrangements are used

•Assess for continuous improvement

•Learning is relevant and connected to life and other disciplines

•Results driven

•Multiple forms of assessment are used

•Assessment ongoing and diagnostic

A Shift in Teaching and Learning

Texas Perspective on the Shift in Teaching and Learning

—Adapted from various Texas Education Agency documents

C/I/A-15


Curriculum instruction assessment

3-2-1 Strategy

Curriculum instruction assessment

Lesson Attributes

  • Objectives and Goals

  • Engagement and Motivation

  • Connections and Relevance

  • Questioning and Inquiry

  • Feedback and Reinforcement

  • Monitoring and Assessment

  • Application

C/I/A-17


Curriculum instruction assessment

Lesson Attributes

Objectives and Goals

The teacher knows what he/she wants the students to know and be able to do at the end of the lesson. Objectives are clear, specific, and include basic knowledge/skills and central themes/concepts of the discipline.

C/I/A-18


Curriculum instruction assessment

Lesson Attributes

Engagement and Motivation

Research makes it clear that all information taken into the brain must first pass an “attentional” threshold. The student must be engaged and interested in the new learning in order to be self-directed/intrinsically motivated and successful in learning.

C/I/A-19


Curriculum instruction assessment

Lesson Attributes

Connections and Relevance

New learning must build on prior knowledge, the “hook” on which to hang the new. Teachers will be most successful when they can connect new information to prior knowledge and to various disciplines, as well as make the learning relevant to the lives and interests of the learners.

C/I/A-20


Curriculum instruction assessment

Lesson Attributes

Questioning and Inquiry

The key to “minds-on” learning and a strong check for understanding is effective questioning and inquiry, both by the teacher and by the student. Instruction should be student-focused, inquiry-based, and directed to students as thinkers and problem solvers.

C/I/A-21


Curriculum instruction assessment

Lesson Attributes

Feedback and Reinforcement

Timely, specific, quality feedback helps students understand why they are successful or unsuccessful in learning and results in a higher level and frequency of student commitment to the learning. Students are then able to repeat their effort and succeed or make adjustments in order to be more successful.

Reinforcing prior learning helps students retain knowledge and extend learning as they apply skills in multiple contexts.

C/I/A-22


Curriculum instruction assessment

Lesson Attributes

Monitoring and Assessment

Effective monitoring enables the teacher to have a conscious awareness of where each student is in relation to the learning objective.

Formative and summative assessment takes place during and after the teaching of the lesson objective to provide data regarding mastery of the learning to both the teacher and the student.

C/I/A-23


Curriculum instruction assessment

Lesson Attributes

Application

Brain research supports the opportunity for students to apply new learning, thus making stronger connections and driving the knowledge into long-term memory. Many of the TEKS/TAKS skills require the application of learning.

C/I/A-35


Curriculum instruction assessment

Change in Terms

  • The names of six major categories were changed from noun to verb forms.

  • As the taxonomy reflects different forms of thinking and thinking is an active process verbs were more accurate.

  • The subcategories of the six major categories were also replaced by verbs

  • Some subcategories were reorganized.

  • The knowledge category was renamed. Knowledge is a product of thinking and was inappropriate to describe a category of thinking and was replaced with the word remembering instead.

  • Comprehension became understanding and synthesis was renamed creating in order to better reflect the nature of the thinking described by each category.

Change in Emphasis

  • More authentic tool for curriculum planning, instructional delivery and assessment.

  • Aimed at a broader audience.

  • Easily applied to all levels of schooling.

  • The revision emphasizes explanation and description of subcategories.

What Is Meant by Differentiation?

Differentiation of instruction is a way of thinking about teaching and learning that advocates beginning where individuals are rather than following a prescribed plan of action.

It is a teacher reacting responsively to a learner’s needs.

“The teacher does not try to differentiate everything for everyone every day. That’s impossible, and it would destroy a sense of wholeness in the class.”

Adapted from Tomlinson

Role of Assessment

“Assessment isn’t something that comes at the end of a unit to find out what students learned; rather it is today’s means of understanding how to modify tomorrow’s instruction.”

“Assessment always has more to do with helping students grow than with cataloging their mistakes.”

—Tomlinson (1999)

—The Differentiated Classroom

C/I/A-84

Begin with the End in Mind

Thinking First as an Assessor

Thinking Then as a Designer

  • Based on the state assessment, what are the students needing to learn and at what level?

  • How will I differentiate to meet varied needs and characteristics?

  • What performance tasks will best support learning and focus the instructional work?

  • What would be the evidence of student learning?

  • Against what criteria will I evaluate the work?

  • How will I be able to distinguish between those who really understand and those who don’t?

  • What misunderstandings are likely? How will I check for those?

  • What would be interesting and revealing activities to help assure this learning?

  • What resources and materials are available?

  • What will students be doing in and out of class? What assignments will be given?

  • How will students earn a grade (and can it be justified to their parents)?

  • Did the activities work? Why or why not?

Doctrine of No Surprises

“Deep alignment is a comprehensive approach to teaching and learning that goes beyond any single measure of the curriculum taught or learned. . .is based on what we call the doctrine of no surprises, that is, children will not be taken by surprise with any form of assessment because alignment is an integral part of the instructional program, not an add on.”

Curriculum instruction assessment

“Curriculum and assessment alignment is a moral issue. If the adults don’t do what needs to be done … the consequences of their negligence fall most heavily on those students who are most dependent on the school as their source of academic learning—namely the children of the poor.”

—Lawrence Lezotte
