3 Professional Teaching Standards Standards addressed at Professional Competence in this workshop include:3.2.1: Identify and articulate clear learning goals that reflect important conceptual understandings of the content/discipline(s) taught.3.2.10: Use student assessment results to evaluate teaching and learning programs and inform further planning.6.2.1: Reflect critically on teaching and learning practice to enhance student learning outcomes.
4 Module 1 Teaching and learning During this session, you will:reflect on the Assessment for/of learning phase of the Process for explicit and systematic teachingconsider comprehension in your school and a Comprehension learning sequence to determine starting points for teaching comprehensiondevelop a Class learning plan for comprehensionReflect on the role of teacher professional learning and its implications for students and teachers.

6 A process for explicit and systematic literacy teaching Focus for this sessionAn introduction to quality literacy teaching (2009) Curriculum K–12 Directorate, NSW Department education and Training, Sydney, NSW.
7 Assessment for/of learning The focus will be on assessment for/of learning to find our starting points for teaching comprehension.What types of information do you use to inform planning in your classroom?Brainstorm what you currently do to assess comprehension.
8 Reading texts Comprehension Vocabulary knowledge Aspects of writing Aspects of speakingPhonicsPhonemic awarenessConstrained skillsConcepts about printUnconstrained skills
10 What are the ‘threads’?Within each aspect, threads indicate areas of knowledge and skills within an overall aspect. For example, the Comprehension aspect includes the following threads:strategies/skillsInferringperspectives/opinions/discussing making and confirming predictionsmultiple texts/sources/purposes comparing/ contrastinginfluence/positioningevidence accuracy/credibilityfeatures (ways ideas are presented)main idea/key ideas, central theme, retell, summary.

13 TaskLinking the learning sequence for comprehension with the Class learning planLocate where you believe the majority of your students would be located on your class learning plan, e.g. Mid stage 2.Read through the markers and highlight the key words.
14 Using the continuum Task Mid Stage 2 Interprets text by recognising and discussing the difference between literal and inferred meaning in relation to facts, qualities, characteristics, events.End Stage 2Responds to and interprets text by discussing the difference between literal and inferred meanings.
15 PlanningTask1. Think about how you might support all students to achieve the learning expected at their stage level, e.g. supported reading, etc.2. Think about grouping to enhance learning.3.Similar goals: Different teaching.
