MAPPING OUR JOURNEY MLPP: THE NEXT CHAPTER SESSION #2 Barb Mick COOR ISD Jackie Fry COP ESD Hattie uses the dial to help us understand the effect size John Hattie reminds us Know what works best and the explanatory story of why it
works best Our profession Why are we in a profession where everything works? Our research comes from our experienceit has worked for us. No teacher says, Im below average
We love to talk about the things that dont matter and its killing us as a profession. There are many aspects of education that are important, but Hatties work only focuses on student achievement. Hattie says, The only goal of education should be to help students exceed their own expectations.
Know Thy Impact Almost everything works. Just because it has a low effect doesnt mean it couldnt have an effect with the right training and attention to feedback. Its not about curriculum or resourcesits about the
teacher. Accept the evidence! The question should be why it works or doesnt workthe STORY. Check the effect size of what youre doingthen do it BETTER! Rethinking
Assessment How do we use data? We need to RECLAIM and REINVIGORATE the term classroom-based instruction. We need to be empowered by data and assessment, not bogged down by it. We need to be more purposeful about what we DO with the data we collect.
This is the goal of The Next Chapter to review and better understand the reason for the assessments we are giving, and then to improve our skills for what comes next. Know Thy Impact The secret is knowing when to switch from one method to another. Ex: I can be the best reciprocal teacher on the planet, but if one of my students isnt learning that way, he needs something else. I am responsible for the achievement of ALL of my students. Diagnose, feedback, interventions, etc
By the wayIf a kid cant read by age 8, they are OUT! This is based on meta-research from all over the world. Implications? The Winners Student expectations 1.44 Piagetian programs 1.28
Classroom discussion .82 Comprehensive interventions for LD students .77 Teacher clarity Feedback .75 .75
FEEDBACK: 0.73 effect size Feedback from student to teacher is directly correlated to AssessmentCapable Learners (effect size: 1.44) Who is most responsible for your learning? Elementary students answered I AM! High School students answered MY TEACHER
Feedback thrives on error You only learn something when you dont already know it. Reframing errors Error management Productive failure Desirable difficulties Impass driven The PIT of CONFUSION The Pit of Confusion Teacher Clarity .75 effect size Remember, these
innovations are all interconnected This is why posting the learning targets is so important. The most powerful single influence enhancing achievement is feedback Quality feedback is needed, not more feedback
Much of the feedback provided by the teacher to the student is not valued and not acted on Students with a GROWTH MINDSET welcome feedback and are more likely to use it to improve their performance Oral feedback is much more effective than written
The most powerful feedback is provided from the student to the teacher Assess your buildings culture regarding feedback before you expect classrooms to utilize feedback effectively. You cant give what you dont have. Are all of our teachers and administrators assessmentcapable learners?
A Four-Step Process 1. Collect the data 2. Analyze the data 3. Interpret the data and establish a goal 4. Create an action plan First, lets redefine data Its not just numbers and letters, but the actual stuff a student produces: sticky notes running records
notebook entries writing samples book logs etc. Can you name others? Five Lenses and Tools for Assessing Reading & Writing * Reading engagement * Reading fluency * Print work/decoding * Reading comprehension * Conversation
Turn and Talk What MLPP Assessments go with each of these lenses? What other assessments are you using that go with each lens? Reading engagement Reading fluency Print work/decoding Reading comprehension
Conversation A word of caution Throughout the year, you will do many assessments. Be careful not to assume what the results mean. We sometimes: focus heavily on the most salient observations, falsely
assuming that because its the most obvious, its the most important realize that the work youve collected and used to form goals didnt really provide the depth you thought it did find that we are making excuses for students, explaining away their lack of progress with something that really was unrelated to the work they were doing in the classroom Things to remember:
Your job is to notice and name elements of your students work. It is most helpful if you do this with a colleague or two, at least at the beginning. Speak aloud, listing what you see. Be as precise as possible. Consider if what you see is evidence of a strength or a need. List observations on a chart, naming strengths and potential areas for growth.
Make sure that the potential areas of growth are linked to the students strengths. Teaching possibilities come from noticing something that is already a strength for the student. The Zone of Proximal Development (ZPD) is related to the Gradual Release of Responsibility is related to building a sense of AGENCY REMEMBER THIS FROM THE 1ST SESSION?
HAPPY PEOPLE ARE BETTER LEARNERS Fundamental human needs: - autonomy - sense of competence - belongingness - meaningfulness Its all about building AGENCY! Turn and Talk With your elbow partner, talk about the intersection of ZPD, GRR, and Agency. What does this all have to do with MLPP?
Lets practice analyzing our data Use your Reading and Writing Interviews to discuss your Case Study students at your table. Talk about things you notice that your students have in common; what do you notice that is different?
Fill out the Summary Analysis Record for each of your students. Be ready to share your impressions with the group. Now lets add 2 more Engagement assessments to the mix: Classroom Engagement Inventory Reading Log
Turn and Talk What would we learn from these two additional assessments? How fast can a child move to the next level? It depends How much time does the child spend reading in school each day?
How much time does the child spend reading at home? Does the child read on the weekends? Vacations? Is the student engaged during reading workshop? Does the child read just right books?
Does the child get helpful, explicit instruction? Is the child an English Language Learner (ELL)? Does the child have any learning disabilities? Its not a perfect science, but Level months to move?
A/B How many - 1 month per level C/D/E/F/G 1 1 months per level H/I/J/K/L 2 months per level M/N/O/P/Q/R/S/T/U V/W/X/Y/Z
3 months per level 3-4 months per level When a reader needs to move, what can we do? 1. Get to know the level (what are the features of this level?) 2. Get to know the expectations of readers within that level (what are the Common Core Standards for readers at this grade?) 3. Get to know the reader (assess and evaluate) 4. Teach! Its not a wait-and-see
game Start with a clear goal Strategy lessons Guided reading (one-on-one or in a group)
Text level introduction groups Get child in a series, release scaffold across series Give the support of a book club Oral Running Record As a table, talk about the annotation key. Make
sure everyone at your table understands the markings and when you would use them. Talk at your table about when you use an ORR DRA2 What can we learn from a DRA2? Talk about which level(s) of readers you have in
your classroom. What do you do about the outliers? Follow along on the DRA 10 recording sheet while you listen to the assessment being given. As a table, score this reader. As a table, look at the teaching points and
decide what is next for this reader. QRI Look over the handout for the QRI. What can we learn about our readers from a QRI? When would we use a QRI?
Your assignment: For next time, you will gather a Reading Log for your case study students, as well as do an Engagement Survey for your class (first names only on the chart please!) You will also administer a DRA on your 3 case study students.
Bring all of this data with you to the next session. Our next session is Understanding the Landmarks (well go deeper into comprehension). Ticket Out the Door Please fill out your 3-2-1 ticket and put it in the middle of your table when completed.
Leave your nametag in the middle of your table. THANK YOU FOR YOUR PROFESSIONALISM! See you at the next session!
