1 Milwaukee Public Schools: Another Way to Differentiate: Parallel Tasks March Academic Coach-Math Training March 15, 2013 Presented by: Bernard Rahming Cynthia Cuellar Rodriguez

2 Prime Leadership Framework “Math education leaders need to assume and exercise professional responsibility and accountability for their practice and the practice of the teachers they lead.” What is my progress on the PRIME indicators for Teaching and Learning Leadership? Use the handout to reflect on your progress.

3 Learning Intention Success Criteria We are learning to advance our PRIME Teaching and Learning Leadership. We will know we are successful when we can actively plan for and integrate into practice two strategies to make differentiation manageable.

4 Unofficial Professional Practice from February Review the Open Question created last month. Discuss the work you have done around differentiation as you modeled lessons and/or worked with teachers. Transfer the Open Question to the modified Lesson Planning template.

5 Parallel Tasks Read pages (pages11-13) Focus Questions: How would the use of parallel tasks lead to valuable discussions about the underlying mathematics of a situation? What role does questioning play in parallel tasks?

6 Questioning Blooms Resources on MMP PBS Questions sheets Question rings

7 Theory into Practice All open questions must allow for correct responses at a variety of levels. Parallel tasks need to be created with variations that allow struggling students to be successful and proficient students to be challenged. Questions and tasks should be constructed in such a way that all students can participate together in follow-up discussions.

8 Turn and Talk What are some benefits of differentiating with Open Questions and Parallel Task? Teacher Student Open Questions Define 5 strategies Parallel Task Define Besides creating the parallel task, why must we also be prepared with follow-up questions?

9 1 Approach for 2 Strategies Three-Step Process Review Examples Create the Question or Task Plan for Follow-up

10 Writing Parallel Tasks Goal: Complete the modified Lesson Planning template Option 1: Create Parallel Tasks that matches the area of focus of the Open Question created last month. Option 2: Create Parallel Tasks that aligns to the current area of focus, and create an Open Question that also aligns to this area of focus.

11 Learning Intention Success Criteria We are learning to advance our PRIME Teaching and Learning Leadership. We will know we are successful when we can actively plan for and integrate into practice two strategies to make differentiation manageable.

12 Professional Practice Complete the modified Lesson Planning template. Be prepared to discuss at least one lesson you modeled using one of the differentiation strategies (Open Questions or Parallel Task).

13 Reflection Question As a Leader in Mathematics, how will you integrate the ideas of differentiation presented to move from Leadership of Self to Leadership of Others?

14 Math Formative Assessment 75 Strategies for Linking Assessment, Instruction, and Learning #2 Agreement Circles #16 Fist of Five #20 Give Me Five #24 I Used to Think…But Now I Know… #34 No-Hands Questioning #47 Response Cards #58 Think-Aloud #59 Think-Pair-Share #63 Thumbs Up, Thumbs Down  #44 Popsicle Stick Questioning
