Using Pathway Student Outcome Charts High School Teachers Council December 8, 2010
Objectives To understand how the Student Outcome Charts, including the vision and mission, of each pathway can be used to create a coherent, engaging and relevant educational experience for all students. To understand the key role the focus on student outcome charts plays in the building of meaningful pathways at each high school.
Icebreaker Individually: Visualize- upon graduating, what do you want your students to become? When time is up, tape your vision to the wall.
Another day in the classroom. Blah blah, blah (boring) The New Kids on The Block…they are dreamy! Here we go again more of the same….BORING ! Well at least we are on a minimum day schedule! Is it Friday yet! Same old routine as the day before No wonder she is sleeping.
The past Oh my!...Its only 2 nd period! How am I going to survive until lunch? Class…. pull out your books and turn to page 22. Hey the teachers clothes dont match. Why do we need to learn this stuff? This is so boring! Hey, did I show you my new CD walkman? 12 34
HELP!!!!!! Hi Ms. Krabapple, more Quadrant A lessons?….BORING!! I need to figure out how to engage these kids. 12 Not again… when are we going to move away from Quadrant A lessons and do something interesting! Lisa, is it necessary to complain everyday you walk into class?
My Fellow Graduates… I leave LBUSD today with the following …. 3 years of History 4 years of English 2 years of P.E. 2 years of Math 2 years of Science Required electives….. NOW WHAT? 1
Vision Statement: Every student an ethical, responsible citizen who seeks to understand and improve the world through engineering technology. Hi Lisa, welcome to robotics. Like I told you, you will enjoy your engineering pathway Robotics is so cool…cant wait to facebook this. 12 WOW, Check out that robot! Ms. K. are we going to learn how to build one?
Engineering SLC classes Intro. to Engineering & Design Principles of Engineering Digital Electronics Engineering Design and Development Bio-Technology 1 2
Digital Electronics Oh yeah its called linked learning! Check it out, in Physics we talked about the movement of robots. Hey there is math involved in creating robotics.. go figure! Duh.. Frita, and that is why in English we are learning about technical writing
I never thought I would see all my students this excited and engaged about school! Hi Ms. K, Quadrant D learning has made school relevant. I got to give you props. You are the rage with all the students. 1 2 Thanks you made my day! 2
My Fellow Graduates… I leave LBUSD today with the following …. Problem Solving skills. Communication, Documentation & Presentation Skills. Knowledge in Designing, Building, & Testing Prototype. Knowledge of Technology, materials & equipment. Ethical Responsible and Environmentally Awareness…… BRING IT ON! 1
What makes a students experience today different from the past?
Agenda Student Outcome Charts as tools for creating intentionally coherent and relevant student educational experiences –What goes into the student outcome charts? –How were they created? BREAK Activity Using Student Outcome Charts
Why do we need Student Outcome Charts? Past: Student Experience is not coordinated for student engagement or real-world connections.
Why do we need Student Outcome Charts? Linked Learning: Student Experience IS coordinated for student engagement and real-world connections. Pathways-SLCs
Student Outcome Charts Student Outcome charts are a tool that provides a blueprint for a coherent, engaging four year educational experience above and beyond the academic standards all students take.
Student Outcome Charts Like the conductor of an orchestra, the student outcome charts coordinate the work of many teachers to reach the desired outcome.
Parts of Student Outcome Charts Industry Sector Affiliation Vision and Mission Attributes that uniquely identify students of that pathway when they graduate 9 th – 12 th grade set of expected outcomes for students
Example Student Outcome Chart Vision: Every student an ethical, responsible citizen who seeks to understand and improve the world through engineering technology. Mission: Incorporate engineering technology into every aspect of the educational process by: 1) Integrating career and technical education and engineering technology into core academic classes and the learning environment. 2) Utilizing technology in project- and problem-based instruction to enhance student learning and develop teamwork, communication, and leadership. 3) Providing a structured sequence of work-based learning opportunities.
Student Outcome Charts How were they created? Inputs: –SLC teachers, Admin, Counselor, Content Area Teachers, Elective Teachers from EVERY pathway/SLC –CTE standards Big Blue Book (also online) –District support and PD Training February 2010 SLC Grants, Connect Ed Grant Local Business Consultancy –(Feedback about important standards)
Student Outcome Charts Teacher capture student needs, interests. Teachers synthesize information from many sources Work collaboratively for maximum ownership Voices of Industry District Support
Summary Check for Understanding (Pair-share) –Why have student outcome charts been created? –How does information from industry get included into student outcome charts? –Share one other item that was interesting to you and why. Break (9:30 – 9:45) Back from Break –Activity: Using Student Outcome Charts
Activity: Using Student Outcome Charts At your table you have: Great Team Copies of 1 Student Outcome Chart from your site Making Connections with Student Outcome Charts- Individual Handout School Summary: Application of Student Outcome Charts (1 per site)
Activity: Using Student Outcome Charts Instructions for activity- Focused on the one Student Outcome Chart from your site –Individually: imagine you are part of that pathway. What connections can you find to what you are teaching? (Follow Handout) –Group: Discuss and complete school summary
Activity: Using Student Outcome Charts Share out by Site: (1-2 minutes each) 1.What was the best example your group came up with as a connection between the student outcome chart and a possible lesson? 2.What were the roadblocks for someone to apply the student outcome charts to their regular lessons?
Student Outcomes as Anchor Center of Collaboration Creating charts Applying charts to lessons Measuring outcomes Communication with public ( Spring 2011 )
Student Outcomes as Anchor Course of Study for each Pathway –December 1 st Pathway Lead Meeting
Student Outcomes as Anchor Interdisciplinary Projects Performance Mapping Professional Development (Roni Evans)
Student Outcomes as Anchor Work Based Learning can be coordinated (See handout)
Student Outcome Charts Summary All SLCs and Pathways have developed them Intentionally outlines coherent, engaging and relevant educational experience for students over four years organized around broad industry themes Makes each pathway unique Tool for thoughtful collaboration Not set in stone- regular update and review within pathway Greater buy-in and ownership will better serve kids
Returning to Your Site: Plan of Action Sharing with Principals –Guiding Questions Handout –Do you have any questions about the guiding questions? Thank you for your participation and all you do for students.
