6 Why do we need to get to know the teacher? (Linda)
Emotion is the gatekeeper to learning Relationship is a key element in every classroom Builds trust Find common threads of interest Fun

7 All We Have In Common With the people sitting near you form a group of 3-5 Create a list of at least three things you have in common. Be ready to share some items from you list with the group.

8 Your Brain

9 Goals for the Session My Goals: Your Goals:
~Give you some applications of brain information to your career, your students’ lives, and the RR Framework. ~Build an understanding of the RR Framework for application to your life.

10 Rigor/Relevance Framework®

11 Students think in complex ways and apply acquired knowledge and skills, even when confronted with perplexing unknowns, to find creative solutions and take action that further develops their skills and knowledge. Evaluation D Adaptation Synthesis Analysis Application 3 Apply knowledge across disciplines 4 Apply to real- world predictable situation 5 Apply to real-world unpredictable situation

12 D Quadrant Verbs Products evaluation newspaper estimation trial
editorial radio program play collage machine adaptation poem debate new game invention evaluate validate justify rate referee infer rank dramatize argue conclude

13 Lobes of the Brain

14 Frontal Lobes – Executive Functions
Controls voluntary movement, verbal expression, problem solving, willpower, and mood. This is how we are consciously aware of our thoughts and actions. Not fully mature until mid to late 20s.

15 Rigor/Relevance Framework®

16 Students extend and refine their knowledge so that they can use it automatically and routinely to analyze and solve problems and create solutions. Evaluation Synthesis C Assimilation Analysis Application 1 Knowledge in one discipline 2 Apply knowledge in one discipline

17 C Quadrant Verbs Products sequence annotate examine report criticize
paraphrase calculate expand summarize classify diagram essay abstract blueprint inventory report plan chart questionnaire classification diagram discussion collection annotation

18 Hippocampus It helps us remember events in recent past, as well as being responsible for sending new information and experiences to be stored in the cortex in long-term memory. Critical to learning and memory formation.

19 Rigor/Relevance Framework®

20 Students use acquired knowledge to solve problems, design solutions, and complete work.
Application Comprehension B Application Awareness 3 Apply knowledge across disciplines 4 Apply to real-world predictable situation 5 Apply to real- world unpredictable situation

21 B Quadrant Verbs Products apply sequence demonstrate interview
construct solve calculate dramatize interpret illustrate scrapbook summary interpretation collection annotation explanation solution demonstration outline

22 Synaptic Connection The axon of one neuron communicates with the dendrite of another neuron by releasing neurotransmitters into the synaptic gap. Some say this is the learning point! And there are millions of them.

23 Rigor/Relevance Framework®

24 Application 3 Comprehension 2 Awareness 1 1 2
Students gather and store bits of knowledge/information and are expected to remember or understand this acquired knowledge. Application A Acquisition Comprehension Awareness 1 Knowledge in one discipline 2 Apply knowledge in one discipline

25 A Quadrant Verbs Products name definition label worksheet define list
select identify list memorize recite locate record definition worksheet list quiz test workbook true-false reproduction recitation

26 The Neuronal Structure
The brain is made up of two types of cells: Glia and Neurons. When fully developed, the human brain’s 100 trillion neuronal connections exceed those of any other creature on earth.

27 Rigor/Relevance Framework®
Synapse Frontal Lobe Neuron Hippocampus

28 Rigor & Relevance Essential Questions...
What will my instructional lessons and assessments look like? How will I link standards with student learning?

29 Try it Out! Create a Lesson using the 4 Quadrants
Draw a box with the 4 Quadrants Label each quadrant: a, b, c, d As you watch the video record: standards skills topics you could teach using your curriculum. Try to record something in all 4 quadrants.

30 Example C D A B

31 The Brain

32 Reflection What do you know about the RR Framework that you did not know at the beginning of this session? What do you know about the brain that you did not know at the beginning of this session? How will you transfer this knowledge to your own practice?
