5 Using Inquiry to Uncover Understanding of Momentum Points Focus on thorny, high-leverage questions College meaningful, personal data Be self-sufficient, systematic & collaborative Pay close attention to what surprises & confounds Enlist students to get at how students “see,” understand & experience Go public - move teaching and learning from a private concern to a public interest Take action - move from insight to practice

6 Momentum Points Using Inquiry Tools for Exploring Momentum Points Collecting data Existing data (Academic Transcripts, Grade Distribution Charts, etc.) Grade Book/Attendance Roster Surveys & Assessments Interviews/Focus Groups Video Capture (Demonstrations, Conversations & Settings) Direct Observation (Classrooms, Service points, etc.) Looking at Data Gap analysis Sociograms & Graphic Organizers Protocols, Rubrics & Content Coding Schemes Content Analysis Case studies

7 Interviews & Focus Groups Las Positas College  Interviewed students about English placement process  vimeo.com/ Cerritos College  Interviewed a student to better understand how engaged he is in Math /challenging-work-and-student- engagement/

8 Using Interviews & Focus Groups to Explore Momentum Points Are there tangled issues around a momentum point that Interviews or Focus Groups could loosen up for you? Who would you interview? What high leverage questions would you ask? How might you organize interview data to “look closely” at it? Keep it meaningful, manageable and sustainable

9 Think-alouds & Read-alouds Laney College  Video taped a pair of ESL students working together to read a text in English  vimeo.com/ Mt. SAC Video taped students doing geology field observations vimeo.com/ Cerritos College  Video taped students solving pre-algebra word problems

10 Using Think- & Read-alouds to Explore Momentum Points Are there tangled issues around a momentum point that Think-alouds or Read-alouds could loosen up for you? Who would you engage in the think- or read-aloud ? What high leverage item would you focus on? How might you organize think-aloud or read-aloud data to “look closely” at it? Keep it meaningful, manageable and sustainable

11 Direct Observation LA Trade Tech College  Students shared their life stories and aspirations  vimeo.com/ Cerritos College Students used a Protocol to observe classrooms for exploring and reasoning routines DZ84oo DZ84oo wp- content/uploads/2010/10/FIN+Observ ation+Protocol-final-version-0310.pdf wp- content/uploads/2010/10/FIN+Observ ation+Protocol-final-version-0310.pdf

12 Using Direct Observation to Explore Momentum Points Are there tangled issues around a momentum point that Direct Observation could loosen up for you? Who would you observe? What high leverage moments would you look for? How might you organize observation data to “look closely” at it? Keep it meaningful, manageable and sustainable

13 Surveys & Assessments Skyline College  Surveyed students to understand the relationship between literacy and aspirations  vimeo.com/ College of Alameda  Surveyed students to better understand their engagement with content iry.net/the-process/survey-of- student-reading-strategies/ iry.net/the-process/survey-of- student-reading-strategies/

14 Using Surveys & Assessments to Explore Momentum Points Are there tangled issues around a momentum point that Surveys or Assessments could loosen up for you? Who would you survey? What high leverage questions would you ask? How might you organize survey or assessment data to “look closely” at it? Keep it meaningful, manageable and sustainable
