1 School Culture in the Middle School Presented by Sergio Chavez Robert Sortino Maureen Vass, Ph.D.

2 “Positive learning can only take place in a positive culture. A healthy school culture will affect more student and teacher success than any other reform or school improvement effort currently being employed.” -Gary Phillips

3 How do teachers determine the impact of their teaching on the learning of students?

4 Activity: Practice Sort Hattie researched the 10 most often used practices/innovations used for instructional purposes. 1.Privately rank their effectiveness, with 1 being the most effective and 10 being the least effective. 2.At the signal, please compare your rankings with your group.

5 Here is a list of some of the innovations/practices. First, rank their effectiveness on your own, with 1 being the most effective and 10 being the least effective. At the signal, compare your rankings with your group. ___ RTI___ Class Size ___ Classroom Discussion___ Summer School ___ Homework___ Web-based learning ___ Ability Grouping___ Concept Mapping ___ Feedback___ Teacher-Student Relationships

6 Effect Sizes o Best way to the question, “What has the greatest influence on student learning?” o An effect-size of 1.0 typically means… Advancing learners’ achievement by one year Improving the rate of learning by 50%! A two grade leap in grades (like from a C to an A)

7 Hinge point = 0.40 If the effect size is above 0.4, the influence has a positive effect on student learning. Half of the influences on achievement are above this hinge-point and half are not!

8 Activity Sort Part 2 So five of these practices have a positive impact on student learning. Highlight your top 5 Do you want to change any of them???

10 Reflections What surprised you? Which of the top 5 practices are you currently using? How? What if you used influences that were all at or above an effect size of 0.40?

11 “Engage Students Hearts and Their Minds Will Follow” - “Chip” Anderson 1)How does the teacher prepare themselves personally and professionally to accomplish this?

12 Personal Preparedness Mind. o Meditation. o Visualization. Body. o Exercise. o Diet. o Sleep. Soul. o Attitude. o Perspective. Spirit. o Positive self-talk about self/kids. o Debrief/problem solve with someone about helping students.
