L.G – To improve students ability to write an analytical essay.

the ideas are not all my own, they come from PLC and collaboration with other year 8 teachers. So thanks 

slide2
Study of ‘The Giver’
  • Fantastic discussion from a rich text, this wasn’t translating into writing.
  • Running out of time at the end of the unit to teach writing
Why???
questions
Why students forget this stuff year after year?
  • In teaching structure do you always compromise ideas?
Questions
solution
To use focused formative assessment
  • To narrow the focus of my teaching, spending time teaching TEEL
  • To teach the skill throughout the unit – 3 paragraphs in total, to acknowledge that we need practice to learn a new skill
  • To make a rubric work properly
  • To enable students to see their own growth
Solution
it s all about the hamburger
Used the same rubric/hamburger, tracks growth
  • To make this a piece of paper students were attached to I used SY’s idea of creating their own hamburger
It’s all about the hamburger.
results
All students moved up the rubric through the unit
  • Easy to teach essay writing at the end
  • The average grade for my class was higher than I have ever had for that class
  • It was easy to see who needed to be referred to PRTI
  • There was richer discussion of text
  • I think it’s going to stick!
  • If it does stick, I know where I can move from here
Results
questions unanswered
Will I need to teach this again with ‘Alice’?
  • Do we need to teach students such a rigid structure so early?
  • Will this help year 9 teachers extend students?
Questions unanswered
