21 S CORING Usually, 7 questions per indicator (combines standards) BB/Basic Proficient Advanced or below 4.5 or below

22 22 School Scored an average of 3.4 question correctly on that standard

23 How did this make you feel? How would a student have felt? How often do we do this to students? Should we have done anything beforehand? If you could change one thing in your classroom after this experience, what would it be?

24 “K-12” Standards Summary of All (3-Years of Data) “Grade-Level” Standards Specific Standards “Unpacked” Standards

27 Each South Dakota standard is listed with a summary definition (combining standards K-12). Each grade level has different wording but similar goals. Grades K-2 are included… they have supporting standards for grades H ANDOUT : T ARGETED A REAS

28 2005 / 2006 / 2007 indicates a 3.5 or lower score on that standard A “Grade Level” Concern x05 / x06 / x07 indicates a 4.5 or lower score on that standard About 1 question difference

29 H ANDOUT : D ISCUSSION G UIDE Complete the top portion of the BLUE handout based on the “Targeted Areas” for your GRADE LEVEL (columns) SPED, Title, and other areas – choose a grade level

31 Each person has 3 dots Individually, based on your discussion of the BUILDING targeted areas, choose 3 standards you think your BUILDING should focus on this year. Stick a dot on the chart paper next to the corresponding reading standards you think should be a focus. H ANDOUT : D ISCUSSION G UIDE

35 Discuss which standards have the highest number of dots. As a group, determine which ones should be a focus for this year Based on those “ dotted ” standards, highlight the specific standards your BUILDING chose to focus on for this year for EACH grade level in your building.

39 W EB L EVELS Norman Webb–Bloom’s model but he put in terms of assessment Level 1 – Recall Example: (Identify this utensil – fork) Level 2 - Basic Application Example: (Explain the function of the fork) Level 3 – Strategic Thinking Example: Identify two examples of when a fork would not be the best utensil for a type of food and explain why. Level 4 – Extended Thinking Example: Design an investigation to determine the optimal number and length of tines for a salad fork.

41 8.R.1.2 Students are able to use reading strategies to comprehend the meaning of words and text. Teacher Speak: Students are able to use (apply in writing and/or speaking) reading strategies (skimming, scanning, word webbing, predicting, inferring, visualizing, and synthesizing) to comprehend the meaning of words and text. Student Speak: I can apply in writing and/or speaking (use): skimming scanning word webbing predicting inferring Visualizing Synthesizing combining new information with existing knowledge to form an original idea or interpretation(reading strategies) to comprehend the meaning of words and text.

42 Form groups of 2-3 (by grade level if possible) SPED, Title, other areas – pick a grade level Look at the unpacked standards for all grade levels for the highlighted focus standards Study the Verbs and Key Terms in those unpacked standards H ANDOUT : U NPACKED STANDARDS

43 Discuss or Write on Chart Paper Brainstorm how you can ensure ALL teachers address the achievement of ALL kids for that standard o Discuss the connections with the standards in the grade level previous to yours.

44 NCLB o NCLB states that all students will improve. o The students from kindergarten on up need the added support and reinforcement of every person they see during the day. o Every person in the school is responsible for student achievement.

45 NCLB How can you help build the skills in the lower grades that will support the achievement growth in the upper grades? How can Library, PE, Music, Computer, etc. assist in these areas? We’ll address these questions later when we write goals.
