75 STRATEGIES AND RESOURCES Keith Oswald, Assistant Superintendent Curriculum and Instruction 75

76 “THE ESSENTIALS” MIDDLE SCHOOL INSTRUCTION BEFORE THE ASSESSMENT CAO February 5, 2013

77 Essentials for Writing

78 Best Practices for Test Readiness Students write every day. Provide prescriptive feedback to students and monitor progress. Teach strategic minilessons based on class needs. Pull children together for small group instruction based on similar need. Confer with individual students. Utilize lesson plans in Learning Village as needed. Utilize the tutorial lessons and Saturday lessons as needed. 78

79 SpringBoard Writing Workshops Expand everyday writing opportunities already available within the regular SpringBoard curriculum. Integrate SpringBoard Writing Workshops into regular instruction. – 10 Writing Workshops are available for each grade level. – Use as support, extension, or intensive practice. 79

80 FY12 FCAT 2.0 Writing Middle School FY12 Palm Beach County FY12 State Mean Score Uns % 3 & above % 3.5 & above % 4 & above Mean Score Uns % 3 & above % 3.5 & above % 4 & above Note: In Palm Beach County, there was a 23 point difference between 3s a 3.5s last year. The minimum goal for students needs to remain a 4 as at least one scorer needs to believe the essay is a 4 in order to earn a

81 Qualities of Good Writing Focus (Meaning & Structure) Staying on the thread of the topic that was chosen to write about. – Planning (various methods) Organization (Structure) The order of ideas presented in the essay. Using transitions that help the essay flow Ordering ideas Having a thesis statement 81

82 Qualities of Good Writing Conventions – Capitalization – End punctuation – Comma usage – Using a variety of complete sentences – Spelling – Subject/Verb agreement Support (Details/Elaboration) Support is the crucial element in moving from a 3 to 4. – Meaningful facts and anecdotes – Meaningful definitions – Meaningful, expert advice or quotations – Meaningful vocabulary choices 82

83 Using Data to Drive Instruction If the writer is a Level 1, I could teach… Focusing closely on the topic of the prompt. Focusing closely on the topic of daily writing. Organizing by introducing the topic, supplying one or more reasons, ways, or kinds of, and concluding the writing. Adding facts or examples to elaborate. Writing sentences with a “who” & a “did what.” If the writer is a Level 2, I could teach… Focusing closely on the topic of the prompt. Organizing by introducing the topic, supplying one or more reasons, ways, or kinds of, and concluding the writing. Adding support to elaborate. Writing sentences with a “who” & a “did what.” Using end punctuation. 83

84 Using Data to Drive Instruction If the writer is a Level 3, I could teach… Taking away any extraneous parts. Organizing with 3 reasons, ways or kinds of. Making a clearer beginning & ending. Adding support to elaborate. ◦ Examples with elaboration ◦ Anecdotes carefully crafted to show how it fits with the idea Writing sentences with simple and compound construction. Spelling word wall words correctly. Using end punctuation correctly. Choosing stronger verbs/specific nouns. If the writer is a Level 4, I could teach… Crafting a strong introduction that previews the ideas to be addressed. Crafting a concluding paragraph that includes the writer’s thoughts or feelings about the topic. Eliminating extraneous parts. Organizing ideas by importance. Using effective transitions between and within paragraphs. Including anecdotes that are angled to match the thesis, and provide sufficient elaboration to create a strong connection. All of the conventions from level 3. 84

85 Using Data to Drive Instruction If the writer is a Level 5, I could teach… Further development of support and elaboration. Each reason, way, or kind of could be supported in multiple ways (definitions, anecdotes, facts, quotations, etc.). Purposeful vocabulary use. Various sentence structures. More purposeful use of punctuation. If the writer is a Level 6, I could teach… Strengthening all of the level 5 components. The piece leaves the reader without unanswered questions. 85

86 Essentials for Reading

87 Middle School Resources for ELA Lesson plans that focus on tested benchmarks, contain on grade level text, and text-dependent questions are located on each grade level ELA calendar in Learning Village. Additional lesson plans that focus on tested benchmarks are available for pull-outs or tutorials. It is important to continue instruction. Two of the most difficult benchmarks (as determined by percentage correct on the winter diagnostic) are and The scope and lesson plans on Learning Village instruct on these benchmarks in January and February. 87

88 These lessons are not located on the calendar, so they are fresh lessons for students. There is also access to the Florida Achieves site for additional testing practice and links to released practice tests. 88

89 Middle School Resources for Reading Lesson plans that focus on tested benchmarks, contain a variety of text levels, and text-dependent questions are located on each grade level reading calendar in Learning Village. 89

90 SpringBoard Resources Available on TrainU SpringBoard ELA and Math Resources available: Pacing Guides, Benchmark Correlations, Graphic Organizers, Sample Bellringers and Mini-Lessons, CCSS and PARCC Connections, Marzano Crosswalk Reading and Writing Supports: Links to 10 SB Writing Workshops per grade level, Sample FCAT stem questions based on SB reading 90

91 Reader and Task Ten Guiding Principles 1.Make close reading and rereading of texts central to lessons. 2.Provide scaffolding that does not preempt or replace text. 3.Ask text dependent questions from a range of question types. 4.Emphasize students’ supporting answers based upon evidence from the text. 5.Provide extensive research and writing opportunities (claims and evidence). 91

92 Reader and Task Ten Guiding Principles 6.Offer regular opportunities for students to share ideas, evidence, and research. 7.Offer systematic instruction in vocabulary. 8.Ensure wide reading from complex text that varies in length. 9. Provide explicit instruction in applied grammar and conventions. 10. Cultivate students’ independence. The most important concept to remember: it is not about the program; it is about the teacher. 92

93 Administrative Considerations Capitalize on teachers’ strengths. Utilize data to monitor progress. – Classroom Assessments – Core K12 – Diagnostics Focus on the curriculum and the resources available in Learning Village. Maintain a balance between instruction and test preparation. 93

94 English Language Learners All English Language Learners must have a word to word heritage dictionary from the beginning of the year to use in class and on assessments. 94

95 Essentials for Mathematics

96 FCAT 2.0 Resources for Grades 6 – 8 Algebra 1 Students Algebra 1 instruction that encompasses the grade-level benchmarks will support FCAT 2.0 preparation. Select grade-level FCAT 2.0 benchmarks not addressed in Algebra 1 need additional instructional support. Alignment charts and instructional resources are provided on Learning Village. 96

112 What Works in Algebra 1 Algebra Nation Differentiate lessons to meet needs of all students. Provide lowest 25% in Algebra 1 with additional support opportunities. Attend content trainings by K-12 Curriculum. Ensure teachers’ knowledge of the revised Item Specifications. Teach foundational skills during the first month. 112

113 What Works in Algebra 1 Utilize progress monitoring logs/benchmark seminars/data chats. Having no more than two preps for Algebra I teachers. Use – Wylie’s Warm-ups (Everglades book) – EOC-like problems for every benchmark – Core K12 assessments for tracking and remediation – Florida Achieves – Spiral review of benchmarks 113

Use – Bellringers – Sample Test – FOCUS Mini-Assessments/FCAT Explorer (FCAT-style questions) – Science Resource Chart – Pearson SuccessNet Resources 125

126 Academic Success Begins With You A study conducted by Hoy, Sweetland and Smith (2002) found that efficacy “was more important in explaining student achievement than socio- economic status.” If you can answer “yes” to the following questions, you are building teacher efficacy.

127 1.Do you believe that your teachers are capable of successfully teaching Level 1 and Level 2 students? 2.Do you identify and celebrate the individual accomplishments and successes of each teacher? 3.Do you provide appropriate feedback to address weaknesses in a non-threatening way? 4.Are you sure that your feedback to teachers has impacted instructional practices at your school? Academic Success Begins With You 127

128 According to Goddard, Hoy and Hoy, principals must intentionally help teachers develop a sense of efficacy. Model the efficacious behaviors that you want to see teachers utilizing in the classroom with their students. Academic Success Begins With You 128
