2 Developing Individual Professional Growth Plans (IPGP)
3 Purpose of the IPGPTo assist in developing long-range goals that will directly affect what is done in the classroom to improve student achievement.
4 Individual Professional Growth Plan is a living document.can change as you grow and meet your goals.should be reviewed and modified annually with input from supervisor, critical friend, and colleagues.is a mobile document that can move with you.
5 Why develop a plan? Job requirement Plan provides structure Goals lead to results: Senge says that “goals represent commitment”Similar to walking into a classroom without a lesson plan and no idea about what you want to accomplish
6 Effective Professional Growth Planning Balances needs of staff, students, school and districtFocuses on student learning and connects individual needs to student needsReflects educational initiatives
7 Effective Professional Growth Planning Includes reflection as part of individual learning and growthIncludes documentation of the outcomesUtilizes the Kentucky PD Standards as a guide
8 Effective Professional Growth Plans are based on: School CSIPYour PracticeIndividual areas identified by the SISI evaluationEvaluates and documents your effortKentucky PD Standards
9 When Developing Your Plan Clear guidelines and evaluation methods should be established for determining successful completion of your plan.Schedule quality time with supervisors, critical friends, and colleagues to discuss what you want to accomplish.
10 Engaging in Collaboration Consider ways to collaborateDevelop joint plansInvolve critical friends in the evaluation of your learning
11 Dufour and Eaker’s New Model “The learning community model …..requires schools to function as a learning community characterized by a shared mission, vision and values, collective inquiry, collaborative teams, an orientation toward action and willingness to experiment, commitment to continuous improvement and a focus on results.”
12 Activity #1: Creating a Vision of Professional Development I want to participate in PD that ….PD that would inspire my interest and commitment would….My colleagues and I deserve PD that….Student learning will be enriched by PD for teachers that….PD should….Effective PD will…….
13 Vision Statement for PD I will get the PD I want and need when itIs based on what is known about adult learners.Supports me in the change process as well as the change itself.Presents content that has proven value in increasing learning for my students.Is delivered through appropriate models.Builds engagement in collegial learning.Is data-driven.Provides opportunities for teachers as leaders, peer coaches, and researchers.Provides adequate time for inquiry, implementation, and joint work.Aligns the efforts of teachers, schools and the district.
14 National Staff Development Council Standards for Staff Development Staff development that improves the learning of all students.Context StandardsProcess StandardsContent Standards
15 Context StandardsStaff development that improves the learning of all students:Organizes adults into learning communities whose goals are aligned with those of the school and district (Learning Communities – SISI Standard 6)Requires skillful school and district leaders who guide continuous instructional improvement. (Leadership – SISI Standard 7)Requires resources to support adult learning and collaboration. (Resources – SISI Standard 8)
16 Process StandardsStaff development that improves the learning of all students:Uses disaggregated student data to determine adult learning priorities, monitor progress, and help sustain continuous improvement. ( Data-Driven – SISI Standard 2)Uses multiple sources of information to guide improvement and demonstrate impact. (Evaluation – SISI Standard 6)Prepares educators to apply research to decision making. (Research-Based – SISI Standard 6)
17 Process StandardsStaff development that improves the learning of all students:Uses learning strategies appropriate to the intended goals. (Design – SISI Standard 3)Applies learning about human learning and change. (Learning – SISI Standard 3)Provides educators with the knowledge and skills to collaborate. (Collaboration – SISI Standard 6)
18 Content StandardsStaff development that improves the learning of all students:Prepares educators to understand and appreciate all students, create safe, orderly and supportive learning environments, and hold high expectations for their academic achievement. (Equity – SISI Standard 4)Provides educators with knowledge and skills to involve families and other stakeholders appropriately. (Family Involvement – SISI Standard 5)
19 Content StandardsStaff development that improves the learning of all students:Deepens the educator’s content knowledge, provides them with research-based instructional strategies to assist students in meeting rigorous academic standards, and prepares them to use various types of classroom assessments appropriately. (Quality teaching – SISI Standard 3)
20 Why use the SISI, Core Content, POS, AE and KY PD Standards? Grounded in researchAddresses system and cultureUses process standards that consider how professional learning is doneUses content standards that examine what students must know and be able to do
21 The SISI and KY PD Standards can also be used to Develop a knowledge base of effective PD practicesDevelop proposal for program improvementDevelop funding proposalsAnalyze current programsDetermine areas for improvementDesign and implement IPGPs
22 Activity #2: Determining Your Professional Growth Based on the SISI Using the SISI Personal Evaluation Form identify your personal performance level on each indicator.Next, using the same form, identify the performance level of your school.
23 Activity #3: Matching Your Scores to those of Your School Look first at the standards and indicators where you are undeveloped or somewhat developed.Match your lowest scores with those of your school, then narrow the list to two standards and the indicators where you wish to improve.
24 Activity #4: Using The PGP Development Plan For each of the two standards that you have chosen:Identify the knowledge you wish to extend.Identify the skills you would like to further develop.
25 An Individual Professional Development Plan includes: GOALSI will……….In what area……..And then……..
26 An Individual Professional Development Plan includes: Basis for Your GoalsHow is your goal linked to your individual needs – how did you identify your need and what reflection data did you use?How is your goal linked to the CSIP?How is your goal linked to student achievement?
27 IPGP Guidelines and Suggestions Goals and objectives should be measurable.Goals should relate to the school goals and priorities and the SISI standards.Work only on items that you have time to cover efficiently.Quality, not quantity is important.
28 Questions to consider: What do I want to share as a result of my learning?How will I judge the quality of my work?How does my practice impact student achievement?How do the school’s goals impact my goals?How can I improve or strengthen my practices?How can I work with others to address my goals?
29 Questions to consider: What skills, knowledge or ability do I need to gain?How will I know I have accomplished my goals?What will I do when mastery is not demonstrated? (students, teachers, administrators)What can I collect as evidence of my PD efforts.
30 Questions to ask for specific goals Would student test scores improve if I worked more with teachers on inquiry in science classes?Would examining student work help me to better understand specific student’s needs?
31 Writing Your Goals Strategic and Specific Measurable Attainable Results-orientedTime-bound
32 Example of a SMART GoalAs a result of using student discourse, the percentage of students in my room passing the mathematics proficiency test will increase this year by 20%.
33 Strategic and Specific – increase in number of students passing test As a result of using student discourse, the percentage of students in my room passing the mathematics proficiency test will increase this year by 20%.Strategic and Specific – increase in number of students passing testMeasurable – 20% increaseAttainable – possible to achieveResults-oriented – specific results statedTime-bound – this year’s test
34 Strategic and Specific – increase in number of students passing test As a result of using student discourse, the percentage of students in my room passing the mathematics proficiency test will increase this year by 20%.Strategic and Specific – increase in number of students passing testMeasurable – 20% increaseAttainable – possible to achieveResults-oriented – specific results statedTime-bound – this year’s test
35 Goals that are NOT SMART: Encourage students to accept greater responsibilityPrepare to move to block schedulingIntegrate technology into the curriculum(Note: connection to CSIP goals, strategies and activities.)
36 Steps in writing your goal State the learning goal by using verbs that describe the learning that will result in improvement.Example: I will learn about…..I will study….I will gain an understanding of…..
37 Steps in writing your goal 2. State how the goal will be applied to practice – will it be applied to curriculum, instruction, assessment, or supervision and what work will you do?Example: I will learn more mathematics toimprove my content knowledge.I will gain an understanding of diversityand how it will enrich my classroom.
38 Steps in writing your goal 3. Describe the evidence you will collect that you have accomplished your learning goal and it has had an impact on your practice.Example: I will create a portfolio.I will analyze student work.I will create a reflective journal.
39 Activity #5: Using The PGP Development Plan Write two growth goals that emerge from the two standard that you have chosen.
40 Techniques for Professional Learning to Use in Accomplishing Your Goals Increase subject knowledgeJoin study groupsImprove curriculumConduct lesson study (tuning protocol)Examine student workUse technologyConduct action researchForm partnershipsExamine case studiesCoach and mentor
42 Activity #6: Using The PGP Development Plan Develop a plan of action to achieve your goals:strategies/activities;timelines;who you need assistance from to implement your strategies/activities
43 Evidence of Accomplishment What evidence will you submit to show what you have accomplished?When will you review your plan and make adjustments?
44 Activity #7: Using The PGP Development Plan Determine the methods you will use to:Show evidence that the activity or strategy occurredDocument the impact that the strategy/activity has had on improving student achievement
45 Reflection Before you plan After you plan After you engage in PD activitiesThroughout the PD process
46 Basic Reflection Questions What happened?Why?So what?Now what?Resource: Reflective Practice to Improve Schools: An Action Guide for Educatorsby Jennifer York-Barr, et. Al.
47 Activity #8: Evaluating Your Plan With your partner, respond to these questions when reviewing your plan:Do the goals and the plan reflect your needs as well as your school’s needs?Does your plan reflect new learning and growth, not just time and effort?Does your plan reflect how student achievement will be enhanced?Have you included methods of assessment?Have you identified evidence that you will gather?
