Here are my very rough notes from a professional development day I spent with Sandra Herbst on November 19th, 2014
–Aurasma is a great app to record videos and just scan a worksheet or picture and it will bring up a video of the student talking about
-Create Success Criteria for a period of time. Don’t waist your time doing to every couple weeks.
-We need to share with parents what we see in class-are they using manipulatives, using the vocabulary, and can verify what they are saying.
-success criteria needs to focus on how to use manipulatives properly, using vocabulary properly (will change), and verify/check their work
-check if they have their capitals and period
-check if addition is right
-focus on 4 students per day to mark if they are using manipulative, vocabulary, verify
-Our purpose is for students…
- -to picture quality
- -to use language of assessment
- -to self monitor towards success
Growing Success talks about:
-Co-constructed success criteria
-self and peer assessment
-communicating learning to others
-Have on your walls samples of work
-have them in a continuum from left to right or right to left switching them so students don’t realize that they are doing badly or good.
-make sure you have one that everyone in the class can do and have one that everyone in the class cannot do yet.
-no marks or grade labelled on it
Assessment: qualify, language,
Evaluation: assign, judgement
-Having a writing continuum and get students to compare their work to another.
-models, thinking, critical thinking, self assess,
-Don’t use a rubric-kids know where the sweet spot is where we can get teachers and parents off his back.
Co-Constructing Criteria with students
-Show samples of work and sort them into groups that they think go together
-Co-Criteria with student
-Sort the criteria into sections and choose a colour to match the heading
-get the students to highlight with that particular criteria heading in their work
|I read and understand the problem
|I chose a strategy that makes sense to solve it
|I can explain how I solved it it to others
|I can have a connection outside of the math class
-Put success Criteria on Arrows. Get students to glue the success criteria arrows onto their work where they have shown that specific Success Criteria.
End of the day idea:
Create a list of words you learned in science class and then email parents the words.
Continuum for many:
