Learning Targets: Delving deeper into the Performance of Understanding September 2013

Learning Target You can demonstrate the knowledge and skills to be able to design effective Performance of Understanding tasks To do this, you will need to… Understand how the performance of understanding is aligned to help you and the students meet the learning target – Recognize the importance the Rigor/Relevance Framework has in designing the performance of understanding

Performance of Understanding It demonstrates a: 1.Student’s understanding and skills; and 2.Provides compelling evidence of student’s understanding and skills (formative assessment) MakingSayingDoingWriting The performance of understanding is what the students are:

Synonymous Learning Task Learning Activity

Guiding Questions 1.What performance of understanding will help my students develop their thinking and applying their new knowledge? 2.What will students need to do, make, say or write to show that they understand the target, and how well will they have to do it?

Consideration How Rigorous and Relevant is the Performance of Understanding (what students are making, saying, doing or writing) that you have designed for students?

Example Learning Target I can accurately regroup when solving two digit addition problems.

Example: Performance of Understanding Given a pair of equations such as 24 + 48 = 72, and 48 + 24 = ___, apply a rule that would give the solution to the second equation of the pair without adding the factors. As part of our study of Newington, plot three coordinates on our Newington map that you’d like to visit on a field trip. The coordinates must be at least 14 miles apart. Determine how many miles it will take you to travel to all locations and back. You need to write a letter to the bus department explaining your field trip route, how many miles it will take, and why you think they should support this field trip. As part of our class survey, we found that fourteen students have a pet dog and seven students have a pet cat. What is the total number of dogs and cats? SolveSolution

-How about for Foundational Skills? -What Can We Do to Increase thinking, development and retention? Moving beyond independent worksheet performance of understanding… – Have students work in pairs to discuss their solution to problems (cards and/or dice). Record their work in their Math Log. – Have students use a place value mat to show their understanding of solving the problem. Record their work in their Math Log. – In a game-like format, small groups work in the following roles: – Banker – exchanges money – Worker – Uses place value mat to ensure accuracy of banker – Recorder – captures what worker is doing in writing as evidence of accurate bank accounting

Expanding this concept… Learning TargetPerformance of Understanding (The trajectory of learning) LT 1 (Day 1) I can say the short vowel ‘a’ sound I will model the appropriate facial mouth positioning / vocal technique to make the sound. The student will use a mirror to reproduce these actions. The learner will video record, critique and rerecord, the facial mouth positioning and vocal technique to produce the short vowel ‘a’ using the iPad LT 2 (Day 2) I can say the short vowel ‘a’ sound in words such as “at, as, ad, ap, am” I will model Vowel/Consonant combinations such as “at, as, ad, ap, am” using appropriate facial and vocal techniques. The learner will video record, critique and rerecord, the facial mouth positioning and vocal technique to produce the short vowel ‘a’ in V/C words/nonsense words using the iPad LT 3 ????? ?????? Does it meet the criteria: 1.Student’s understanding and skills; and 2.Provides compelling evidence of student’s understanding and skills (formative assessment)

What other examples do you have? 1.What performance of understanding will help my students develop their thinking and applying their new knowledge? 2.What will students need to do, make, say or write to show that they understand the target, and how well will they have to do it?
