6 21st Century Skills Tony Wagner, The Global Achievement Gap Critical Thinking and Problem SolvingCollaboration and LeadershipAgility and AdaptabilityInitiative and EntrepreneurialismEffective Oral and Written CommunicationAccessing and Analyzing InformationCuriosity and ImaginationCritical Thinking and Problem Solving: To compete in the new global economy, companies need their workers to think about how to continuously improve their products, processes, or services. “The challenge is this: How do you do things that haven't been done before, where you have to rethink or think anew? It's not incremental improvement any more. The markets are changing too fast.”Collaboration and Leadership: Teamwork is no longer just about working with others in your building. “Technology has allowed for virtual teams. We have teams working on major infrastructure projects that are all over the U.S. On other projects, you're working with people all around the world on solving a software problem. Every week they're on a variety of conference calls; they're doing Web casts; they're doing net meetings.”Agility and Adaptability: Ability to think, be flexible, change, and use a variety of tools to solve new problems. “We change what we do all the time. I can guarantee the job I hire someone to do will change or may not exist in the future, so this is why adaptability and learning skills are more important than technical skills.”Initiative and Entrepreneurialism: Taking chances and being a risk-taker. “I say to my employees, if you try five things and get all five of them right, you may be failing. If you try 10 things, and get eight of them right, you're a hero.”Effective Oral and Written Communication: The ability to be clear, concise, focused, energetic and passionate around the points they want to make. “We are routinely surprised at the difficulty some young people have in communicating: verbal skills, written skills, presentation skills. They have difficulty being clear and concise; it's hard for them to create focus, energy, and passion around the points they want to make. If you're talking to an exec, the first thing you'll get asked if you haven't made it perfectly clear in the first 60 seconds of your presentation is, ‘What do you want me to take away from this meeting?’ They don't know how to answer that question.”Accessing and Analyzing Information: The ability to know how to access and analyze large quantities of information. “There is so much information available that it is almost too much, and if people aren't prepared to process the information effectively it almost freezes them in their steps.”Curiosity and Imagination: The development of young people's capacities for imagination, creativity, and empathy will be increasingly important for maintaining the United States' competitive advantage in the future. “People who've learned to ask great questions and have learned to be inquisitive are the ones who move the fastest in our environment because they solve the biggest problems in ways that have the most impact on innovation.”Summer Leadership Institute
7 High Effect Size Indicators “The Department’s identified set of indicators on high effect size instructional and leadership strategies with a causal relationship to student learning growth constitute priority issues for deliberate practice and faculty development.”-Florida Department of Education, 2012Student learning needs and faculty and leadership development needs will vary from school to school and from district to district. However, contemporary research reveals a core of instructional and leadership strategies that have a higher probability than most of positively impacting student learning in significant ways. The indicators below link formative feedback and evaluation to contemporary research on practices that have a positive impact on student learning growth.• Research on the cause and effect relationships between instructional and leadership strategies and student outcomes address the effect size of a strategy: What degree of impact does it have?• In the context of district instructional and leadership evaluation systems, effect size is a statistical estimation of the influence a strategy or practice has on student learning. Effect size calculations result from statistical analyses in research focused on student learning where the correct and appropriate use of a strategy yields better student learning growth than when the strategy is not used or is used incorrectly or inappropriately.• In research terms, those strategies often identified as “high effect size” are those with higher probabilities of improving student learning.Classroom teachers need a repertoire of strategies with a positive effect size so that what they are able to do instructionally, after adapting to classroom conditions, has a reasonable chance of getting positive results. As school leaders and mentor teachers begin to focus on feedback to colleagues to improve proficiency on practices that improve student learning growth, emphasis should be on those strategies that have a high effect size.

14 Understanding the Rating System Hands-On Directions:Understanding the Rating SystemInstitutionalization (Level 3): No more than one Indicator is below Level 3 (i.e. 3 out of 4, or 4 out of 5, or 5 out of 6 etc.; no Indicator may be at level 0.Routine Use (Level 2): No more than one Indicator is below Level 2. No Indicator may be at level 0.Meets Certification Standards (Level 1): No more than one Indicator is below Level 1; there must be a plan in place and implemented to bring that Indicator to Level 1 or higher for the following school year.Not AVID (Level 0): Certification requirements for Level 1 are not met (more than 1 Indicator is below Level 1). There was no plan or the plan from the previous year was not implemented effectively.
15 Reviewing the 11 Essentials Hands-On Directions:Reviewing the 11 EssentialsDefine the responsibilities needed for the success of that essential.Decide what type of team member (Adm., Guidance, Elective Teacher, Coordinator, Interdisciplinary Site Team Teacher) would be suited for this task.Describe how the site team might be able to show documented evidence of this essential for the CSS binder.

27 A strong site team = A strong AVID Program One person can’t do this alone!AVID done right can allow teachers feedback opportunities, offer a venue for facilitating Professional Learning, establish clear goals and expectations for school sites, offer teachers instructional resources and strategies, and establish school base instructional initiatives.
