1 Using Learning Goals and Proficiency Scales in Drama Year 7 Drama Storybook Drama Exploring Indigenous Perspectives By Diane Pashen Holland Park State High School

2 About the session… 0 The focus is on: 0 Marzano as an instructional strategy within the Drama classroom; and 0 Using Learning Goals and Proficiency Scales. 0 Sample work is framed around: 0 Indigenous Perspectives in picture books; and 0 Year 7 Drama students. 2

3 About this session… In this session: 0 Presentation of my approach to Marzano in the Drama classroom; 0 Developing and writing Learning Goals; 0 Developing and writing Proficiency Scales; 0 Measuring Attainment; and 0 Using Data. 3

4 About me… 0 Using Marzano instructional strategy for about a year and a half at Holland Park State High. 0 School Focus has largely been on: 0 Design Question 6 – Rules and Procedures; and 0 Design Question 2 – interacting with knowledge school focus on Design Questions 3, 4, 5 – Symphony of Learning – engaging with knowledge. 0 My interest was in Design Question 1 and going beyond setting Learning Goals – because we already do it! What else? What is the point? 4

5 Info drawn from: 0 Marzano, R.J (2007) “The Art and Science of Teaching: A comprehensive framework for effective instruction”. Hawker Brownlow Education. 0 …And from my own “trial and error” 5

6 Focus Unit 6

7 7

8 The Unit 0 Based around the text: ‘Where the Wild Things Are’ 0 Using supporting Indigenous texts. 0 Use information from Elders (Aunty Peggy). 0 Create a class performance. 0 Characters informed by qualities of Indigenous animals. 0 Storyline for class performance based on Indigenous history, White settlement etc. 0 Class performance to expand and explore key moments. 8

9 DQ1: What will I do to establish and communicate learning goals, track student progress and celebrate success? 3 elements to Learning Goals: 0 Communication of the goal; 0 Tracking student progress; and 0 Providing feedback and celebrating success. 9

10 Starting point: Learning Goals Goals: Statement of what students should know or be able to do. 0 They are the focus point for the lesson; 0 Starting point for making decisions about attainment of knowledge; 0 Learning goals can go across multiple lessons and be broken down into smaller ‘chunks’. 10

11 Writing Learning Goals 0 Must be: 0 Clear; 0 Specific; 0 Address one skill only; 0 Measurable; 0 Referred to throughout the lesson; 0 Reviewed and reflected upon at end of lesson. 0 Usually simple statements starting with: 0 Students will be able to… 0 Students will understand… 0 I can… 11

12 EXAMPLES… Year 10 Students will be able to understand and demonstrate use of the element: Human Context (Role) – Purpose, Status and Attitude in performance. Year 7 I understand ‘Role’ and can create a character with Indigenous qualities. 12

13 What did I do with LG? 0 Within a 10 week unit, broken down skills and elements needed to complete assessment task or key concepts. 0 Based on 3 X 70 minute lessons per week; 0 Used each week to focus on one area – EOD; 0 Larger EOD ‘chunked’ into smaller sections for each lesson (3 aspects) 0 Proficiency in each element measured at end of week - One formative assessment piece. 0 Only assessing the element as it related to the LG for the task – not all developed skills. 13

14 What does that look like for 7s? Handouts: 0 Week 3 lessons on Focus; 0 Learning Goal listed for each lesson; 0 Developed across the week; 0 Time for reflection included; 0 Formative Task: Abstract performance; 0 Complete Proficiency Scale – both Teacher and Student. 14

15 Lesson Plans 3 09/02 Focus LG: To develop and understand Focus (Performers and Framing the action) Warm up: Two headed monster – one word story about object – via improv.  Explain element of Focus (of actors)  Activity: Actor to talk on a topic whilst another tries to distract them  Note the importance of actor focus.  Shifting focus: Discuss fractured fairy tales Eg. Wolf and 3 mean pigs or Burglar Goldie Locks  Create 2 scenes and flip it: o Real fairy tale in a minute o Fractured fairy tale in a minute o Prepare and present  Apply to “Wild Things”: o Select moment. o Play scene then flip it to change focus o Rehearse and Present  Last two groups present simultaneously (will be loud and messy)  Brainstorm: What can we do to allow both to have focus? Create a list on board  Merge groups of 2 and apply brainstorm ideas for scenes to run simultaneously. o Present LG: Able to draw Focus using Gesture & Voice Warm up: Charades – film titles  Review previous lesson – ways to gain focus of a scene. Explain gesture and voice.  Clumps (Still Images): o Person lost in crowd (5) o One happy person (4) o Family portrait with naughty kid (4) o PM giving speech (6)  Bring scene to life: o Select group’s favourite o Use mime and one key phrase each o  Short rehearsal and perform  Using pictures and text from narrative: o Recreate scene – freeze frame o Bring to life with symbolic gestures o Use choral speak for line of dialogue (SDW p.76) – manipulate text from literary source into aural experience using: sound, song, repetition, emphasis, man voices, volume o  Longer rehearsal time needed o  Teacher assistance within groups  Perform – Audience firstly listen only to the performance and then watch  REFLECTION - Class tableaux o Image of ? o Add movement o Add voice / sound LG: Able to manipulate areas of Focus – actor, gesture, voice and Contrast Warm up: Improv. “Say Again” (using negatives/opposites) – may need to skip or reduce  Discuss natural contrasts? o M & F, Light & dark, Loud and soft  Role-play: Run-away children: o Students devise a 3 scenes with dialogue o Requires message about running away o  Longer rehearsal time to get detail o Perform  Flip the action changing only the voice so it is adults who are running away from children: o Manipulate voice to show contrast o  Short Rehearsal time o Perform  Abstract performance: o Ask: How could we create the same message (dramatic meaning) manipulating focus, choral speak and contrast o  Longer rehearsal o  Teacher assistance within groups o Present  REFLECTION: How does focus create / add to dramatic meaning?  Scale: Ability to: create, manipulate and maintain focus; incorporate gesture, voice and contrast for dramatic effect/ affect. Teacher: Record student score on class rubric. Student: Own reflection – indicate score in book. 15

16 Measuring Attainment of LG There are multiple ways to check for understanding during lessons: 0 Thumbs: up, down, or sideways; 0 Recording in book next to LG a score; (private) 0 Indicating by show of hands; 0 Coloured Post-it notes; 0 Heads down and indicate (private) 0 Offer multiple ways – private and public. 0 More formal: Proficiency Scales. 16

17 Proficiency Scales Handout: 0 Week 3 Proficiency Scale Proficiency Scales: 0 Involves formative assessment task; 0 Specifically designed scale for the formative assessment piece; 0 Will address a single goal; 0 Will use a rubrics – not points or letters; 0 Will also require charting of progress. 17

24 Measuring Attainment 0 Student Evaluation: 0 Complete formative task; 0 After reflection, complete scale based on own perceived ability; 0 Teacher Evaluation: 0 Teacher gives score based on ability demonstrated during formative task. 0 Verbal feedback also given at time of task completion. 0 Chart to keep record. 0 Compare student score with teacher score. 24

25 Charting Progress 25

26 Why use the data? 0 Easily identify ‘at-risk’ students; 0 Highlights specific learning area requiring assistance; 0 Allows for timely intervention; 0 Students have a clear idea of their learning level – ‘no surprises’; 0 Allows for grouping of students based on ability; 0 Students see development of skills and learning; 0 Provides clear areas for reflection (student and teacher) 26

27 How do you use the data? 0 Create charts and maps to identify students; 0 Make student intervention plan and strategies; 0 Use to make groupings: 0 Mixed ability groups – learn from others; 0 Same level groups – Work out the problem together; or 0 Same learning area - focused instruction; 0 Use with seniors for ‘selective update’ 0 As a basis for conversation – difference between perceived ability and actual ability. 27

28 Activity 2 Your turn: Look at the data given on this sample Year 7 class. 0 What does the data tell you? 0 What students are ‘at-risk’? 0 What activities would you create to help? 28

30 Mapping Assessment to Scales Week 8 0 Students are given a sheet with ‘feedback’ that has been mapped to the assessment criteria and scales and is based on a rehearsal (as formative task). Same process for a written task. Week 9 0 Students complete a self-appraisal sheet based on the summative performance and feedback from rehearsal. This can be used by students to compare with final grade awarded. 30
