Presentation Transcript

  1. Session #1 Next Steps Institute October 19-22, 2005

  2. Agenda • Science through the decades • Goals and overview • Using notebooks for professional learning • Modeling level 1 kit training Next Step Professional Development Pathway

  3. Meet and Greet at Decade Posters • Please go to the poster that represents the decade in which you began teaching • Introduce yourself • Consider this prompt… When I started teaching everyone thought the best way to teach science was to… • Record your group’s responses on the poster • Report out by decade Next Step Professional Development Pathway

  4. Meet and Greet Processing Questions • What have we changed in how we teach science? • What are the implications for professional learning for veteran and beginning teachers in the 21st century? Next Step Professional Development Pathway

  5. Goals for the Pathway • Experience, evaluate, and apply a practical professional development model that addresses the requirements of NCLB including student achievement goals and research-based practice. • Develop a clear vision of effective professional development that impacts student learning. • Learn and understand how to implement successful professional development strategies and professional learning activities. Next Step Professional Development Pathway

  6. Using Student Notebooks to Enhance Learning Next Steps Institute October 19-22, 2005

  7. Journals, Logs, Notebooks?? • Journals are reflections of students’ learning. • Logs are where students keep data over time. • Notebooks are tools for students to record data and thinking as they work with materials. Next Step Professional Development Pathway

  8. Purposes of Notebooks Enhance the development of students’ conceptual understandings and inquiry skills, and Provide teacher with a window into the students’ understanding of concepts and many of the skills of inquiry, and Offer students opportunity to develop literacy skills and an authentic application of those literacy skills.

  9. What can be used? • Composition Notebook • Spiral Notebook • 3-Ring Binder • 3-Prong paper folder • Folded paper booklets • Other? Next Step Professional Development Pathway

  10. NSI PD Pathway Notebooks Composition Notebooks Next Step Professional Development Pathway

  11. NSI PD Pathway Notebooks Common Structure • Title Page • Table of Contents • Title each section • Number pages • Date every entry • Appendix Next Step Professional Development Pathway

  12. Seasonal Partners • In your notebooks draw an icon for each of the four seasons.

  13. Seasonal Partners • Draw a line beside each icon. • Find a person to be a partner for each of the seasons. You will write your name in their notebook and vice versa for the same season.

  14. Line of Learning • To use line of learning, learners write their thinking about a key concept or topic. • Learners return to their thinking at strategic times throughout the unit. Next Step Professional Development Pathway

  15. Line of Learning • To use line of learning, write your thinking about the key concept or topic. • Date the entry to the line of learning. Next Step Professional Development Pathway

  16. Map showing Grant Wood Area Education Agency School Districts (Eastern Iowa) Next Step Professional Development Pathway

  17. Taking a look inside the VAST Science Materials Center Next Step Professional Development Pathway

  18. Preparing and packing the kits for circulation to the schools. Next Step Professional Development Pathway

  19. Level One Kit Training on the STC Pebbles, Sand and Silt Unit Next Step Professional Development Pathway

  20. Modeling Level One Professional Development • Description • Purpose and Goals • Mini-Session • Kit Specialists • Logistics Next Step Professional Development Pathway

  21. Level 1 Kit Training • What were your thoughts as a student? • As a teacher? • How would this experience help you teach the content more effectively? Next Step Professional Development Pathway

  22. Level One Inservice Goals • Participants will become familiar with the materials and activities in the unit. • Participants will gain ideas on managing hands-on science instruction. • Participants will experience the activities of the unit of learners. • Participants will be aware of the big ideas of the unit. Next Step Professional Development Pathway

  23. A Teacher to Teacher Model • Kit Specialists: • Are identified for each unit • Have multiple years of implementation experience with the unit • Participate in the design of the Level One inservice model • Become familiar with effective professional learning research and strategies • Agree to respond to follow-up questions from participants Next Step Professional Development Pathway

  24. Logistics • Experienced teachers as facilitators • Kits and materials prepared by materials center staff • Facilitator tool kits/notebooks with all materials and information • Evaluation • Subs; honorarium Next Step Professional Development Pathway

  25. Session #2 Next Steps Institute October 19-22, 2005

  26. Agenda • Teachers in action • Mock leadership teams • Principles of effective PD • Leadership teams • analyze data • set goals • select content Next Step Professional Development Pathway

  27. Processing Level 1 Professional Development • View Level 1 Training video • Processing Question… What do you notice in this video that connects with what you have just experienced and how are these experiences evidence of effective professional development? Next Step Professional Development Pathway

  28. Line of Learning • Reread previous responses when asked to return to your thinking at strategic times throughout the unit, draw a line under what you previously wrote and record how your ideas are changing by describing how the learning experiences have: • reinforced something you thought before. . . • changed something you thought before. . . • caused you to think something you have never thought before. . . • Again, date the entry to the line of learning. Next Step Professional Development Pathway

  29. Next Step Community School District Leadership Team • Information about the Next Step Community School District • Developing a common vision of effective professional learning using Designing Professional Development for Teachers of Science and Mathematics (2003) by Susan Loucks-Horsley, Nancy Love, Katherine E. Stiles, Susan Mundry, and Peter W. Hewson Next Step Professional Development Pathway

  30. Build a Leadership Team to… • Analyze student achievement data • Set goals • Review research to select content • Design a professional development plan Next Step Professional Development Pathway

  36. Inquiring into Data Analysis

  37. Looking at data – Peeling away layers Next Step Professional Development Pathway

  38. First layer – Who? • Look at the 8th grade science and mathematics proficiency data. • Ask… • What do you suspect about the group of kids below proficiency? • What patterns or trends might you see? • What is your hunch about why some kids fall below? Next Step Professional Development Pathway

  39. Possibilities • Identified subgroups • Gender • Free/Reduced Lunch • IEP • ELL • Ethnicity • Migrant Next Step Professional Development Pathway
