1 Catch em Before They Hit the Ground Chris Shore Great Oak High School The Math Projects Journal

2 When You Catch em … Geometry: from 1 st Progress to Semester Report Card (09-12) 12-15% 0-9% District Final improved over 3 years from 74% to 85%. Algebra Essentials: from Unit 1 to Unit 2 (12-13) 33% 3% 29 of 30 passing! Unit exams improved from 74% average to 86%. Single Digit Failure Rates are Possible!

3 The Paradigm Shift Students are solely responsible. A Coachs Mind Set

4 Who Do We Have to Teach? ALL!

5 Why Do They Succeed & Fail ? FCBA Cousin IT Answer Key

6 Why Do They Succeed & Fail ? FCBA Cousin IT Digit Casper Dracula Fencepost Beavis Copperfield Taz Barbie Natural Trudger Answer Key

7 How Do We Catch em ? Get DEMANDING: Demand Best Effort Get FOCUSED: Remediate Immediate-ly Get DETERMINED: Dial it Up not Down Get EXCITED: Motivate

8 Get DEMANDING ? Demand Best Effort Theory Practice No Options! Slacker Alerts (Make failure more painful than success) Incomplete Policy Intervention S.O.S./Name on Board Engage!Interesting Lessons (No Quiet Deals) Walk Abouts Call Outs Whiteboards Pair/Share

9 Get DEMANDING ? C. Shore, Mathematics Great Oak High School WARNING: SLACKER ALERT Your child _____________________________ has been slacking off in class this week as evidenced by: Failure to complete homework Missing one or more major assignments: Please sign and return by tomorrow.

17 Get FOCUSED ? Algebra Essentials, Great Oak High School Skill Battery Solving Equations Solving 1-Step Equations 1)Solve & Check a) x – 4 = 16 b) x + 7 = 20 c) x + 8 = 54 2) Solve & Check a) 7x = 35 b) 3x = 18 c) 9x = 21 Solving 2-Step Equations 3) Solve & Check a) 5x – 4 = 16 b) 3x – 21 = 9 c) 4x + 7 = 27

21 Get EXCITED ? Motivate Theory Practice Recognition Gnarly Stars Hope Progressive Testing Its the END that matters Best Deal on Campus

22 Get EXCITED ?

23 Motivate Theory Practice Recognition Gnarly Stars Hope Progressive Testing Its the END that matters Best Deal on Campus Most recent test or test average (whichever is higher) F C A B Higher Same or 1 lower 2 or more lower

24 But Did They Learn Any More? Work Learn Earn Work Earn External Data 25% of Geometry Freshmen scored Advanced 0% of Geometry Sophomores scored BB/FB 6% of Geometry Total scored BB/FB (2% failed course) 98% of SL Studies Seniors passed IB Exam
