Observations and Inquiry Writing Assignments Comparative Analysis 4

5 Group Norms What do you need to feel comfortable and productive in the classroom? Things to Consider: professionalism side conversations cell phones respect timing breaks 5

6 Table Tents FRONT OF THE CARD Name # Years Teaching Content Area
Personal Logo—A picture that represents your passion for teaching BACK OF THE CARD Name School Location A speed limit sign representing your processing speed One goal to meet during this Institute

7 Get Acquainted! Using your table tent, introduce yourself to the other participants at your table. Include one unique fact about yourself. Allow one minute for each person to introduce him/herself so the whole table has time to share. 7

8 Interactive Notebooks Introduction
Let’s Get Started Interactive Notebooks are a great way to provide support to your students, enabling them to stay organized and achieve success in the science classroom. 8

9 Interactive Notebooks
Interactive Notebook Cover and Page #s Your cover includes: Science 1 Your name Courses you teach Four illustrations with color Number ALL pages Start with inside cover as page 0, making sure all right pages are odd numbers. 9 9

10 Team-Building Activity
Helium Rods Get into groups of four and obtain a wooden dowel that has been soaked overnight in helium Stand in pairs facing each other Hold your pointer fingers out like fake guns at waist level Balance the dowel on all 8 fingers Without EVER letting the rod lose contact with any finger, lower it to the ground

13 Brain Processing Activity
Brain Processing of Information Auditory Cortex Visual Cortex Temporal Lobe Occipital Lobe Hearing Words Seeing Words Broca’s Area Wernicke’s Area & Frontal lobes Parietal Lobe Describe the regions of the brain and what part of our environment they process. Note that there is overlap like to speak you must process words that were heard or seen. In learning, topics that are processed by multiple parts of the brain will be retained longer than others. “Are you conscious of every sound in the room, or have you tuned some out? Ie projector fan, airconditioner, my voice ” Frontal Lobe Speaking Words Processing Words 12

15 Mission of AVID AVID’s mission is to close the achievement gap by preparing all students for college readiness and success in a global society. 14

16 WICR and the Brain WICR strategies utilize multiple brain regions, thus reinforcing learning and long-term retention. 15

17 WICR – The AVID Way HO pg. 1 16 17

18 Email/FaceBook/Twitter/Restroom Break
Move this slide if you need to… Try to work in 2 breaks per day, about every minutes 19

19 Is it Science or is it Magic?
Watch the demonstration that I perform. Is it science or is it magic? If your answer is “science,” you should be able to duplicate the demonstration yourself.

20 Huddle Up! Collaborative Review
AVID Mission and WICR AVID’s mission is to close the achievement gap by preparing all students for college readiness and success in a global society. Huddle Up! 3 WICR strategies you already use: 1. 2. 3. 2 Ways to Support Site Team: 1 Topic for Socratic Seminar and 1 Philo. Chairs 7 17

22 Interactive Notebooks
HO pg. 2 “Interactive Notebook: What Is It and Why Use It?” Read the first paragraph quietly to yourself and number all the paragraphs. 20

23 Interactive Notebooks
What I know about Interactive Notebooks… Interactive Notebooks Write what you know about Interactive Notebooks at the top of page 9. 9 21

24 Interactive Notebooks Jigsaw
Expert Groups Number off at your home group table from 1–5, repeating if there are more than five people at your table. The assigned number represents your expert group. Join others with your number at the assigned tables for expert groups. # Title of Section Assigned: 1 History 2 The What and the How 3 The Student Perspective 4 The Teacher Perspective 5 Differentiating for Student Populations 22

25 Expert Groups At your expert group table:
Silently read assigned portion of the text. Highlight important statements within the passage. As an expert group, discuss highlighted portions, and decide on the top three highlighted statements that best represent the main ideas of the section. At your home group: Share the top three statements with the group, having them highlight as you summarize why they are most important. 23

26 Script for a one-minute movie preview explaining key notebook points
Movie Posters On page 8, create a Movie Poster addressing the Big Ideas below: Essential components of the Interactive Notebook Value to teacher Value to student How it uses WICR Benefit to differentiation Your poster should include the movie’s title, an advertising sketch and a one-minute movie preview. Movie Poster Movie Poster Title Artwork Script for a one-minute movie preview explaining key notebook points 8

27 Daily Homework Points Movie posters and one-minute previews checked by the presenters during break Possible methods of daily Interactive Notebook check: (Usually done while students are engaged in other activities) - Stamps - Signatures - Initials - Write score onto notebook, then into grade book Discussion: How can you do a quick check in your class? 26

28 Cornell Notes- Focused Note Taking
HO pg. 13 We will now learn about Focused Note Taking 27

31 Summary Prepare a summary (bottom of page 11) using
one of the methods below: Make a Venn diagram to compare and contrast observations from any two segments. Create a concept map for the video. Write a quickwrite on the topic, “convection.” Write a cause and effect statement about the addition of the divider in the video. 32
