Common language elements and indicators






In order to be an effective Instructional Coach in the ETO, you have to be able to speak the language of ETO.

Eto acronym challenge
ETO Acronym Challenge


I will display a commonly used ETO acronym and the first person to identify what it stands for will receive a prize.

Then we will talk about what each of the acronyms represent and the purpose of each.

Acronym 1
Acronym # 1


What is the education transformation office eto
What is the Education Transformation Office (ETO)?

  • Established in Miami by Assistant Superintendent Nikolai Vitti with the S.I.G. funds provided by the federal government to turn around the “chronically lowest performing schools.”

  • Build Instruction Leaders

  • Ensure High Quality, Effective Teaching

  • Use Data to Make Decisions on Instruction, Interventions, and Enrichment

Next Generation Sunshine State Standards (NGSSS)

Define the content, knowledge, and abilities that a K-12 student is expected to have mastered at the end of each grade level or course.

Provide guidance to teachers when setting instructional goals by clarifying the depth of knowledge expected.

Provide a framework for textbooks and other instructional materials.

Connect: Write about 3 new things that you learned today and how this will help you as an instructional mathematics coach.

Connect:Why is having a strongplan for interventions/enrichment such an important part of your role as an instructional math coach?

BELL RINGER: Make an appointment.

BENCHMARK: Interventions


  • Access prior knowledge: What is Intervention?

  • Who Goes to Intervention?

  • What Types of Intervention?

  • Intervention Materials

  • Getting Started

    • Selecting Interventionist

    • Setting Up for Interventions

  • Your Turn (Activity)

  • Journal Reflection: How does this affect teacher performance and student achievement?


Today we will examine the role Interventions and Enrichment play in our work to improve student achievement by identifying it’s purpose, reviewing materials used for interventions, and looking at how to develop an effective intervention routine.


Review today’s lesson and develop your next steps to share this information with teachers at your school


Why is having a strong plan for interventions/enrichment such an important part of your role as an instructional math coach?

What is an essential question eq
What is an essential Question (EQ)?

  • Overarching, higher order questions that yield inquiry and argument, and are intended to result in conclusions drawn by the learner.

  • Designed to provoke and sustain student inquiry.

  • Address conceptual foundations of an objective.

  • Stimulate ongoing, rethinking of big ideas, assumptions and prior lessons, and may raise other important questions.

    • Understanding by Design, 2004

Common language elements and indicators

Webb’s Levels of Cognitive Complexity

  • Low Complexity relies on the recall and recognition of previously learned concepts and principles

  • Moderate Complexity involves more flexible thinking and choice among alternatives

  • High Complexity requires students to engage in more abstract reasoning, planning, analysis, judgment, and creative thinking

Higher order thinking and rigor
Higher Order Thinking and Rigor

  • Promote critical, independent, and creative thinking

  • Inquiry methods and questioning strategies promote deeper understanding

  • “Think Alouds”

  • Use of adequate “wait time”

  • Accountable talk

  • Students use a variety of methods to communicate ideas and/or procedures.

  • Discussion is promoted

Differentiated accountability da
Differentiated Accountability (DA)

  • The Florida model for Differentiated Accountability (DA) aligns and integrates federal and state accountability systems to allow implementation of school improvement strategies that will have the greatest impact on low-performing schools. The model differentiates among schools based on school grade and percent of Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) criteria met.

Common language elements and indicators

Prevent I – Schools graded A, B, C with > 80% AYP criteria met

  • School directs intervention

  • District provides assistance

  • State reviews progress (monitors/reports)

    Correct I – Schools graded A, B, C with > 80% AYP criteria met

  • School complies with district determined measures

  • District directs intervention and provides planning

  • State provides assistance, monitors and reports

    Prevent II – Schools graded D or F with < 80% AYP criteria met

  • School complies with district determined success

  • District directs intervention, provides planning and assistance

  • State provides assistance, monitors and reports

    Correct II – Schools graded D or F with < 80% AYP criteria met

  • School complies with the state-directed interventions

  • District complies with state-directed interventions

  • State directs intervention, monitors and reports

Intervene designated schools
Intervene Designated Schools

  • Is a category in Florida's school accountability system

  • Means that there will be heightened level of district and state support for academic and behavior programs

  • Exiting intervene requires a school to meet AYP, through one of the options, in at least one subgroup for reading and one subgroup for math.

What is adequate yearly progress ayp
What is Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP)?

  • Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) measures progress of all public schools, and school districts toward enabling all students to meet the State’s academic achievement standards.

  • Measurements target the performance and participation of various subgroups based on race or ethnicity, socioeconomic status, disability, and English proficiency.

Ways to meet ayp
Ways to Meet AYP

  • Meeting the goals set by the State

  • Ninety-five percent of all students and all subgroups must participate in the state assessment program in order for a school or district to make AYP.

  • Safe Harbor-schools must show an increase of 10 percent of the non-proficient students from the year before.

  • In addition, all schools must demonstrate a 1 percent improvement in the percentage of students proficient in Writing and high schools must also demonstrate a 1 percent improvement in its graduation rate.

Elements and indicators activity
Elements and Indicators Activity

  • At each of your seats, you have a playing card with a number. When I say go, you will meet with the people that have the same # as you. That is your indicator #.

  • In your group, you will work together to describe the indicator and share what it would look like in the classroom. Write this on the chart paper provided.

  • You will be given 10 minutes to complete your chart and be ready to present.

  • Your group will have about 3 minutes to present out on your specific Indicator.


  • How does speaking the “ETO Language” and knowing the Elements and Indicators help drive your work as a coach?
