INTRODUCING THE WORK…
In order for AfL (assessment for learning) or Formative Assessment to be effective, two of the five things teachers must do are Clarify and share learning intentions and criteria for success with students and Engineer effective classroom discussions, questions, and learning tasks.
Our learning in 2015 will focus primarily on these two aspects.
Watch this Brief Intro Video from Dan
FOCUS AREA 1
- Clarify and share learning intentions and criteria for success with students. For example, some teachers share work samples completed by previous students and have current students discuss which ones are strong and which are weak, and why.
Watch John Hattie on Youtube:
FOCUS AREA 2
- Engineer effective classroom discussions, questions, and learning tasks. Well-planned questions can prompt students to think and provide teachers with information to adjust instruction. Teachers need to use effective questioning techniques that keep all students engaged and that gauge the understanding of the whole class instead of just selected students.
Read through each of these strategies then in your teaching groups, consider the following:
QUESTIONS TO CONSIDER IN GROUPS TO FEEDBACK
- Where in your teaching and learning are you already providing your students similar opportunities with regard to Learning Intentions, understanding Success Criteria and AfL strategies?
- Which of these concepts could you add to your repertoire. How and when are you going to do so, and how will it enhance your teaching?
- How do/could we strategically USE data from utilising these strategies to inform our teaching?
- How do/could we document students’ progress?
One possible example to address 3 & 4 could be a spreadsheet to collate info from Exit Cards
Points for Discussion Based on Data:
- Was Lesson 1 too hard/not explained well enough/ just an off day – do we need to revisit this content next lesson, and completely re-plan it for next time?
- How can we better support Student 1?
- Do we need to ‘push’ Students 4&6?
- Does Student 2 recognise/own the effort/struggle s/he’s had to gain understanding in Lesson 4?
- What’s happening with Student 5… when/why was he making progress, what compromised this?
