Using only your outcome and pedagogy cards: • Select the TOP/FIRST card from the outcome pile and the TOP/FIRST card from the pedagogy pile • Do they work together? Why or why not? • Repeatuntil you have gone through the decks. Outcome + Pedagogy

3 things to keep in mind … • How are you sharing outcomes with students? • How will you know if students are understanding what is being taught? • How are you engaging students? Lesson Plans
Enduring Understandings about Learner Outcomes Making learner outcomes visible to students throughout the learning process helps students make connections and be actively involved in their learning. Teaching from the outcomes and to the outcomes—and aligning instruction and assessment with the outcomes—deepens student learning.
Post program vision/ mission statement permanently all year. include SFOs or essential questions on the front pages of unit/ course syllabi, parent communications and checklists. Use SFOs as references on tests & quizzes Use SFOs or essential questions for conversation starters Use SFOs for reporting achievement Use SFOs for exit slips Use criteria statements to determine what you will accept as evidence of understandings Use SFOs as checklists/cover pages
Don’t forget discussions from Monday (Schletchy) Many ways to engage students. Consider: What are students … Student Engagement
