  • Bell-work
  • Today’s Clear Learning Targets
  • Review CLTs
  • Unpacking Group Work
  • Making Time for Everything
  • Rocket Science
  • Review
  • Next time @ Leadership Academy
today s clear learning targets
Today’s Clear Learning Targets

Participants will…

  • know how Clear Learning Targets connect to formative, summative and statewide assessments
  • know specific strategies for remediating CLT’s as part of core instruction


  • We have invested a significant amount of time building classroom routines and procedures.
  • We have explicitly taught behavior expectations.
  • We have established a strong classroom community where students feel free to take intellectual risks.
bell work
  • You have 11 minutes to complete the Bell-work
  • Use the page provided
  • Write a total of three (3) Clear Learning Targets based on 5th grade Math CCSS
      • 1 – Independently (3 minutes)
      • With your table (8 minute)
clear learning targets
Clear Learning Targets
  • Observable and measureable statements of what students will know or demonstrate at the conclusion of a lesson
  • Capitalizes on three (3) of John Hattie’s “top 10”
  • Focus instruction towards specific actionable goals
  • Makes learning transparent for all stakeholders


self report self reflection
Self-Report / Self-Reflection

Evaluate your own work

  • Is the CLT specific? Can I teach this in 1-2 class periods?
  • Is it observable and measurable?
  • Does the CLT state what student’s will know or demonstrateat the conclusion of the lesson?


core concerns
Core Concerns
  • Why would I spend time developing and refining Clear Learning Targets? Aren’t lesson plans enough?
  • You have developed Clear Learning Targets. You taught Clear Learning Targets. There are some students that don’t understand, were absent, or otherwise require re-teaching
  • We have interventions to handle deficits in basic skills, but we don’t have a mechanism for intervening in grade level content


outcomes from september leadership academy plc
Outcomes from September Leadership Academy PLC
  • Three Question Assessment
  • Delivered Hardcopy
  • Scored in Illuminate Ed
  • Instant Results and Item Analysis


  • Most students demonstrated proficiency in knowledge of clear learning targets
  • A few students were not proficient (<20%)


next step
Next Step

Now it’s the next day. There is a small group of students that did not reach proficiency in the CLT’s of the previous lesson. Now, I need a mechanism for catching them up.


unpacking small group work
Unpacking Small Group Work
  • Who was involved?
  • What happened? (tasks and sequence)
  • How did we assess?
  • What was everyone else doing?


this is what was supposed to happen
This is what was supposed to happen…
  • Pulled students that have not demonstrated proficiency
      • Absent
      • Require re-teaching
  • Explicitly stated CLT
  • Provided guided notes
  • Required all students to verbalize the CLT
  • Cloze Reading
  • Choral Response
  • Concept Shrinking (Paragraph Shrinking)
  • Assessment


research based intervention evidence practice
Research-based Intervention / Evidence-Practice
  • Need a mechanism for intervening in recent grade level content
  • 5-10 Minute of Skills Remediation per day
  • Institute for Educational Sciences (IES) Practice Guides
  • Adaptation research based instruction from whole class activities
  • What Works Clearinghouse

  • Review start of the day


clt s
  • Basic building blocks toward aligning units and assessments


this is the game we play
This is the game we play
  • What are we measured by? What is that which our superintendents judge us and our school by? Either large or small?

State Assessments.


traditional lesson and unit planning
Traditional Lesson and Unit planning
  • Dissect State Assessment
  • Align Units and Unit Assessments
  • Write Lesson Plans to meet daily objectives.


new elements towards reaching academic goals
New elements towards reaching academic goals
  • Align Content Area Tests to reflect State Assessments.
  • Post Clear Learning Targets and show students what they need to do in order to demonstrate proficiency.
  • Allow students multiple opportunities to show proficiency and retest if necessary.
  • Adjust instruction to reflect student progress toward proficiency on Content Area Test.


wrap up
Wrap Up
  • Clear Learning Targets provide clarity and precision that pays dividends in assessment and data analysis
  • Remediation of recent grade level content is necessary and possible with clear learning targets


next time at the leadership academy
Next time at the Leadership Academy
  • Next session – January 22nd
  • Assessing and Accounting for CLTs
      • Standards-based Grading
      • Assessment Design
      • Building Consensus
