Task 2 Identifying Goals - Steps to completing your Goals Booklet - Literacy and Numeracy sections 1. 2. Handout PAT Test Data remind student not to keep it neat needed for folio Teacher discussion with students reviewing this data using strength based language see teacher guide information 3. Ask students to look at the evidence specifically the students scale score 4. Draft a baseline statement based on the scale score only (baseline identifies where the students starting point is) e.g. After reviewing my 2016 Term 1 PAT R Comprehension Test I note this reveals my current scale score stands at 137.8 5. Draft your SMARTER Goal e.g. I want to improve my PAT R Comprehension Test scale score from 137.8 up to 143.5. I aim to reach this 0.6 points improvement by the end of term 3. I will trial and review my progress fortnightly evaluating my learner dispositions in how I am going and what changes I need to make to succeed. This approach will help me grow my comprehension skills for all my literacy based subjects. 6.
To complete the strategies section work through the following steps Ask students to explore what are learner dispositions - start by brainstorming and defining what makes a good learner? Whole class Put ideas on paper pin up in room. 7. Ask students to think pair share select from the learner disposition list sheet. Make use of the habits of the mind and learner Profile to assist in this process. Put these ideas around the room and ask students to share back with the class. 8. Now list 5 key Strategies adding the detail to each of what this looks like sounds like (So where do I get these strategy ideas from? look at the Learner disposition lists REPEAT Process for Numeracy Goal Continue to complete the form. (left hand side only) 9. NB This is a comparison for printing purposes it has no baring on student level of achievement. Baseline Statement evidence Target 123.7 The data suggests the student has some challenges across the four areas and need support in each area. This will be worked on during English class because its a PAT- R Comprehension Test Have a strength based conversation with students
Focus on the students strengths skills, acknowledging their challenges and identify the type of support they may need. REMEMBER the goals focus is on the Evidence to draft the baseline statement Explain to students In Mentoring we will focus on the students learner Dispositions/learner behaviours not specific subject areas as learner behaviours are the strategies that directly impact the growth and skills development of the student in each area. Summary of a Strength Based Approach IS focusing on what the student can do (their strengths and abilities) rather than what they cant do describing learning and development respectfully and honestly building on a students abilities within their zones of proximal and potential development acknowledging that students experience difficulties and challenges that need attention and support (the problem is the problem, which isnt minimalised the student is not the problem) identifying what is taking place when learning and development are going well, so it can be reproduced, further strengthening skills and teaching approaches what the student will one day be able to do, (grow & develop from their strengths & abilities) Teacher Guide
is NOT only about positive things a way of avoiding the truth about accommodating bad behaviour fixated on problems about minimising concerns one-sided a tool to label individuals Attempting Strength Based Statements Statements need to tell the student what learning and development has taken place and what strategies have been used to support the students learning and development. Teacher Guide Strength Based Conversations When chatting with students about their PAT Tests identify their scale score and target. Use strength based language see definitions and example How to Encourage Students. Remember the focus is on the students
