  1. LeadingInnovative Teaching& Learningin the 21st Century Fostering innovation and excellence in teaching within an accountability environment Hug High School 2013-2014

  2. “In the future they will divide human history into Before the Internet and After the Internet.” (BI/AI) Veronica “Nicky” Silber (2013)

  3. Accreditation • Develop a process to assess both school-wide and individual student progressin achieving the expected school-wide learning results. Develop a plan of specific action to ensure that all teachers use a variety of assessment strategiesto assess student growth over time. Formalize the collection of data on student outcomes as well as data on teacher practicesin the school that lead to these outcomes. • Develop a clear process by which data will be available and regularly updated. This system and use of data will lead to ongoing meaningful analysis of Tier I, II, and III instruction as part of this process. This information should be used in the implementation of future goals and action steps that al aligned with Hug’s School Performance Plan (Focus Plan).

  4. NCCAT • All instructional staff members must use classroom assessments aligned to CCSS. • All instructional staff develops units/lesson plans based on student assessmentresults and adjusts instruction accordingly. • All instructional staff members provide students with additional instruction and intervention as needed to improve student achievement.

  5. The Problem: Critical need to assess Innovative Teaching & Learning

  6. Missing or underdeveloped in accountability systems

  7. Instructional Core

  8. Paradox: Accountability vs. Sustainable Improvement

  9. Current data indicators

  10. Where we have been…Aligning Initiatives to support School Performance Plan (SPP) • CCSS • Math Practice 3: Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others • Math Practice 6: communicate their own reasoning precisely to others using clear definitions in discussion. • ELA Shift 4: Text-based questions; rich and rigorous discussions making evidentiary arguments both in conversation, as well as in writing. • Teacher Professional Growth Standards (TPGS) • Standard 3: Instruction • Using Questioning & Discussion Techniques • Engaging Students Actively In Learning • 21st Century Skills • Effective communication • Student-centered • Self-directed

  11. Walkthrough Elements 2012-2013 • Classroom Talk • Teacher – Student • Classroom Questioning • Teacher – Student • Instructional Patterns • Teacher-directed – Student-centered • Depth of Knowledge (DOK) Levels

  14. Designing and fostering a culture of ‘Innovative Teaching&Learning’ (ITL) • What does ‘innovation in instruction’ mean? • What are some important 21st Century skills? • Why is ‘innovation in instruction’ important? • What are the conditions for supporting innovative teaching practices? • How do you lead innovative processes?

  15. What does ‘innovation in instruction’ mean? Innovative teaching practices • … are student-centered Collaboration, knowledge construction, self-regulation/assessment, skilled communication, personal relevance • … extend learning beyond the classroom Critical thinking & problem solving, real-world innovation, cross-disciplinary that fosters global awareness, 24/7 learning • … integrate Information & Communication Technology (ICT) into teaching and learning To meet specific concrete learning goals

  16. Summer ITL Work • Identified the 21st Century skills and rubrics (6 total) that we will focus on as a school. • Identified and analyzed the alignment among – CCSS, 21st Century Skills, & TPGS. • Analyzed/Developed & aligned a classroom walkthrough tool with the 21st Century skills. • Analyzed & scored lesson plans (teaching practices/learning activities) and collected baseline data. • Designed 3model action research PGPs to support ITL teams.

Designing and fostering a culture of ‘Innovative Teaching&Learning’ (ITL) • What does ‘innovation in instruction’ mean? • What are some important 21st Century skills? • Why is ‘innovation in instruction’ important? • What are the conditions for supporting innovative teaching practices? • How do you lead innovative processes?

  18. 21stCentury skills? • Collaboration • Knowledge Construction • Real-World Problem-Solving & Innovation • Use of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) for learning • Communication • Self-Regulation

  19. Three out of four employers predict that broad competencies like critical thinking, collaboration, and creativity will become even more important for job success in the near future.

  20. Percentage of Employers Rating Skill as “Very Important” SOURCE: Data from Casner-Lotto & Benner (2006). Note. Content skills in boldface.

  22. What are the conditions for supporting innovative teaching practices?

  23. Aninnovativeculture • 21st Century Professional Learning Vision 21stCentury academic and workforce readiness. • Mobilize and Prioritize Resources & Incentives Dedicate funding; Use of time; Access to PD; Instructional materials; Leadership recognition. • Collaboration & Empowerment Ownership and autonomy to make important decisions; Trust and communication centered around improving teaching practice. • Data-informed Openness (scale-up) Share data and results openly, spread ideas, create opportunities for influence, and communicate signs of success with all teachers.

  24. Professional Learning Goals 21st Century Professional Learning Goals

  25. Teacher Leaders & Innovators How do you leadinnovativeprocesses? Teacher Leaders & Innovators Learning requires receptiveness to new ideas and information, and Rogers' (1995) influential work on the diffusion of innovation: • innovators (2.5% of the population) • early adopters (13.5%) • early majority (34%) • late majority (34%) • laggards (16%)

  26. Leadership Implementation Active engagement & participation on an ITL Collaboration Collective responsibility Alignment CCSS, TPGS, 21st Century Skills, and school goals &targets Coherence Collaborative action research PGP and classroom measures aligned to 21st Century skills: Long-term commitment over school year Improve School & Classroom Measures Innovative teaching practices, learning activities, and 21st Century learning outcomes (e.g., walkthroughs, teaching practices, student work etc.)

  27. InnovativeTeaching&Learning(ITL) Teams … Alignment • Innovative Teaching & Learning (ITL) Teams

  29. Action Research (PGP) Planning Process

  30. Ideas for 21st Century ITL teams • Academic conversations in the classroom • Student self-monitoring & class discussions • AP writing on free response section of exam • Digital tools for teaching • Brain research and teaching kids in poverty • Collaborative problem-solving • ICT literacy- learning in digital networks • Pre-AP/AP vertical curriculum articulation • Problem-based learning (PBL) • Writing across the curriculum • Social Studies (Assessing DBQs) • Health Science Academy & Workforce Readiness Skills • Literacy strategies aligned to CCSS • Innovative Teaching & Learning (ITL) Teams
