1 Title I Directors Conference Sept 2007 Carol Diedrichsen Gwen Pollock Surveys of the Enacted Curriculum for English Language Arts Reading, Mathematics, and Science

2 Collaborative inquiry-- School teams constructing meaning of student-learning problems and testing out solutions together through rigorous use of data, research, and reflective dialogue unleashes the resourcefulness of educators to solve the biggest problems schools face. Using Data Project--CCSSO

3 Wouldnt you like to know…

4 The concepts actually taught in your department? What standards students in different curricular paths at your school cover before graduation? The comparison of your district and department emphasis with the states standards and performance descriptors?

5 The overall picture of what is taught including how and when the concepts are taught? How your work in your classroom could be used to shape important decisions for your school? How youre doing as a school in spiraling conceptual learning and to what extent youre consistent or redundant across grade levels and different courses and kinds of courses?

7 What is the SEC? How could you use it? Why would you want to? General Introduction to the SEC Sample report and how it can be used A map and a success story –Success in Oregon High schools and a –High schools and student learning –Evaluation for CSR, support for high schools What about you? How could you use it? Among other ways for: KEEPING SCORE Needs assessments On-going formative and summative evaluation Planning for required plans

8 SEC Overview It is a tool to: Foster professional conversations about curriculum, methodology teacher needs and perceptions in powerful school discussions Review and map practices with school, district, and state. compare instructional content to state standards and assessments. It is NOT a tool for teacher evaluations. And it doesnt fix curriculum or instruction.

9 Does The SEC Work? The original research project had over 600 teachers in 11 states who completed the SEC surveys, kept a daily instructional log, plus included classroom observations and interviews. A study found a high correlation between the SEC surveys and the other research measures This shows that survey participants are trying to make honest answers. The more honest your answers are the more useful the results will be.

10 Surveys of Enacted Curriculum A neutral content grid With cognitive demand The intended curriculum: State content standards what students should learn The enacted curriculum: What teachers teach The learned curriculum: Student outcomes based on school learning The assessed curriculum: State (and other) assessments tested learning

11 The teacher survey tool… Collects data on: –what content concepts are taught and how it is taught –teacher beliefs –readiness to teach the content –readiness to instruct special groups of students.

12 The SEC reports can help you: identify gaps/redundancies in curriculum Type I non-alignmentdidnt cover the topic Type II non-alignmentcovered other topics Type III non-alignment with student expectations see areas for deepening content expertise and knowledge of how students learn that content. determine areas of need when planning for professional development. monitor changes in practice as a result of implementing new curricula. Applications of SEC

13 Survey Sections School and Class Description Process of Inquiry Instructional Content Use of Assessment Strategies Use of Homework Instructional Influences Instructional Activities Instructional Preparation Text based Activities Teacher Opinions and Beliefs Small Group Work Professional Development Hands-On and Technology Activities Teacher Characteristics Formal Course Preparation Instructional Sources

14 Part 1 of Survey

15 Reporting Instructional Content Use of lesson plans, grade books, text, etc. encouraged for recall Topic coverage is organized and reported by Content Area (e.g., for Mathematics:) Number Sense, Properties & Relationships Measurement Data Analysis, Statistics, Probability Algebraic Concepts Geometric Concepts Instructional Technology Cognitive Demand reported for each topic covered (e.g., for Mathematics:) Memorize Perform Procedures Demonstrate Understanding of Mathematical Ideas Conjecture, Generalize, Prove Solve non-routine problems, make connections

16 Step 1: Report time spent on topics taught Reporting Instructional Content

17 Step 2: Establish emphasis for students for each topic taught. Reporting Instructional Content

18 What do you see? Use the post it notes to jot down your observations or questions about what you see.

23 Questions to consider Why would we want to do this? What do we want to study? What could we study? Who needs to be involved? How deeply? How should we organize the effort? How can we sort the information? How will this affect what we are already doing? Or what we will need to do soon? What will we do with the information? What rules of engagement must we assure? What kinds of commitments are necessary? Time, support, follow-up, repercussions, and so on.

24 The SEC can help your schools… Align curriculum, instruction, and assessment Improve instruction within and across grade levels Focus teacher planning and development on instructional practice and its effects on student performance Determine professional development needs Focus coaching and mentoring activity around content and practice

25 Collaborative inquiry-- School teams constructing meaning of student-learning problems and testing out solutions together through rigorous use of data, research, and reflective dialogue unleashes the resourcefulness of educators to solve the biggest problems schools face.
