OPTIONAL/DONT DO!!!!!!Whole group:Go through each question: STAND UP if you think this works in your system, crouch if youre not sure, stay seated if you doesnt think this works for your system.
Expect to hear some, Yeah, buts
Dialogue: OK, if these all have a place in your system, how might these look DIFFERENT????
Keep that filter on as we continue our work today.

Dont do:Graphic Organizer: Draw a circle in the middle of your paper and write: ROUTINE in the middle. Brainstorm the routine components YOU use. For example: Most of you create a shared vision for your classroom in order to determine rules and procedures.
10Design Question One:
What will I do to establish and communicate learning goals, track student progress and celebrate success?11Youve got to think about big things while youre doing small things, so that all the small things go in the right direction.
A learning goal (essential learning) is a statement of what students will understand and/or be able to do.For example:Students will understand direct and indirect democracies. Students will be able to do three-column addition.
What are learning goals or essential learnings?What are the criteria for essentials?Endurance (Will this provide knowledge and skills that will be of value beyond a single test date?)
Leverage (Will this provide knowledge and skills that will be of value in multiple disciplines?)Inquiry, critical thinking, inferences, problem solving
Readiness for next level of learning (Will this provide students will the tools they need for success at the next level or grade.)

Advanced Learning Press.14Whats next?Creating or Refining Proficiency ScalesCreating a proficiency scale16I have over 25 students in my class. Problem: How can I write a goal for all my students that is both challenging and attainable?
17Solution: Construct goals at multiple levels of difficulty.
I have over 25 students in my class.
It sounds simple and yet we rarely do it. Why teachers perceive the work to be overwhelming. Yet, they are overwhelmed by the different learning needs in their rooms. Proficiency Scales

Recognize or recall isolated details such as: Precipitation is one of the processes of the water cycle. The troposphere is one of the lowest portions of the Earths atmosphere.NE State Accountability Efforts
Great work! Students will be able to discuss the bodys most important dietary needs.Students will be able to recognize healthy vs. unhealthy foods given a listStudents will be able to discuss what would happen to the body if one of its needs was not met (eg. What would happen if the body received no calcium for an extended period of time?)Please place in order of complexityStudents will be able to design word problems based on given mathematical equations and find any errors.Students will be able to translate between simple word problems and mathematical equations.Students will be able to recognize accurate statements about the mathematical processes embedded in word problems.Please place in order of complexityStudents will be able to write a variety of complete sentences with fluidity.Students will be able to write compound-complex sentences in isolation.Students will be able to write a simple sentence with a subject and a predicate.Please place in order of complexityStudents will be able to discuss the key aspects of Roosevelts foreign policy during WWII.Students will be able to create a generalization about the most or least effective thing a president can do during times of conflict.Students will be able to compare the successes and failures of different presidents foreign policies during times of conflict.Please place in order of complexityAdvanced= 4.0 More complex learning goalProficient= 3.0 target learning goalProgressing= 2.0 simple learning goalBeginning= 1.0 with help, a partial understanding of score 2.0 and partial knowledge of score 3.0 content0= even with help, no understanding or skill demonstrated.

Procedural knowledgeStudents will use elements of persuasive writing in highly structured assignments. Students will be able to write a persuasive essay using appropriate sources within a format provided by the teacher.Students will select the most appropriate format for a persuasive essay on a chosen topic and use multiple sources to address an argument and any possible counter arguments.
