One Greece The Power of Feedback One Vision One Team One Greece Typing on Steroids One Vision One Team

One Greece Typing on Steroids One Vision One Team One Greece Why this workshop? The more leaders focus their influence, their learning, and their relationships with

teachers on the core business of teaching and learning, the greater their likely influence on student outcomes Instructional leadership beats all other forms of leadership in impact on student learning (Robinson, Lloyd, & Rowe, 2008, p. 23). One Vision One Team One Greece So if it behooves us to practice instructional leadership

What specific leadership behaviors have the greatest effect on student learning? One Vision One Team One Greece Robinson, Lloyd, & Rowe: Specific domains which had greatest effect

Promoting & participating in teacher learning (d=0.91) Planning, coordinating, & evaluating teaching & curriculum (d=0.74) Aligning resources to priority teaching goals (d= 0.60) Establishing goals & expectations (d= 0. 54) Ensuring an orderly and supportive environment ( d = 0.49) One Vision One Team One Greece

So. We are working to become instructional leaders Requires us to have most current and up to date information Two major meta analyses: Marzano, Waters, & McNulty (2005) and Hattie (2009) Hattie wrote Visible Learning for Teachers 2012 to implement his findings One Vision One Team One Greece

Learning Target Participants will understand that formative assessment (feedback) is among the most powerful tools to move learning forward, when the learners thinking is visible, learning targets are explicit and communicated, and when learners become leaders of their own learning. One Vision One Team One Greece UbD Template Note the lesson plan for this workshop in the

Understanding by Design (Grant Wiggins & Jay McTighe) format. Can use this format for meeting plans, daily lesson plans, and unit plans. Has been modified to use the Double Plan idea, as in Doug LeMovs book, Teach like a Champion. One Vision One Team One Greece Learning Target Participants will understand that formative assessment (feedback) is among the most

powerful tools to move learning forward, when the learners thinking is visible, learning targets are explicit and communicated, and when learners become leaders of their own learning. One Vision One Team One Greece Learning Target Everyone knows feedback works. But the devils in the details It is not enough to give feedback in order to see the impressive gains cited in

the research. One Vision One Team One Greece Discuss: why would we care about this? Feedback is among the most common features of successful teaching and learning. But there is an enigma: while feedback is among the most powerful moderators of learning, its effects are among the most variable Hattie, 2012,

Visible learning for teachers, p. 115. One Vision One Team One Greece What are (at least) four assumptions here? To make feedback effective, therefore, teachers must have a good understanding of where the students are, and where they are meant to be and the more transparent they make this for the students, the more the students can help to get themselves from the points at which they are to the success points,

and thus enjoy the fruits of feedback p. 115. One Vision One Team One Greece Did you say: assumes Student thinking is visible. Learning targets are explicit and clear. Student learning status is both assessed and communicated to the students. We want students to take charge of their learning (we value student agency).

One Vision One Team One Greece Check again To make feedback effective, therefore, teachers must have a good understanding of where the students are, and where they are meant to be and the more transparent they make this for the students, the more the students can help to get themselves from the points at which they are to the success points, and thus enjoy the fruits of feedback p. 115.

One Vision One Team One Greece Which of these assumptions is taken for granted the most? Student thinking is visible. Learning targets are explicit and clear. Student learning status is both assessed and communicated to the students. We want students to take charge of their learning (we value student agency). One Vision

One Team One Greece Working from observables is the foundation of the formative evaluation of learning. Too often, teachers work from theories or inferences about what students do that are not always open to change in light of what students actually do. Instead teachers need to concentrate on what students do, say, make, or write, and modify their theories in light of these observations (or this evidence) 116. How might this change practice?

One Vision One Team One Greece How does group work make thinking visible? Facilitators model. One Vision One Team

One Greece Levels Major questions Three feedback questions 1 Task How well has the task been performed? Is it correct or incorrect?

Where am I going? What are my goals? 2 Process What are the strategies needed to perform the task? Are there alternative strategies that can be used? How am I going? What progress is being made towards the goals? 3 Selfregulation

What is the conditional knowledge and understanding needed to know what you are doing? Self-monitoring, directing the processes and tasks Where to next? What activities need to be undertaken next to make better progress? 4 self Personal evaluation and affect about the learning

One Vision One Team One Greece Research tidbits aka in case you didnt think we needed this discussion Carless (2006) has shown that most feedback given by teachers is to the whole class and most of this is not received by any student because no single student believes it pertains to him or her! Many students are simply unable to understand feedback comments and interpret them correctly (Higgins, Hartley, and Skelton, 2001). 70 percent of teachers claimed that they provided detailed feedback

that helped students to improve their next assignments but only 45 percent of students agreed with their teachers claim (Carless, 2006). Nuthall (2005) found that most feedback that students obtained in any day in classrooms was from other students and that most of this feedback was incorrect. VLT p.122 One Vision One Team One Greece Reading for Meaning: Types of Feedback See handout

FYI This strategy was invented by Silver & Strong. Can be used with any complex text. A close reading strategy because it requires the reader to use text (quotes, ideally) to support or refute a stance. The best reading for meaning statements are somewhat mixed but with a predominance of textual support for one side over the other. To use: Select complex text. Pull out most critical content. Create a small number (3-5) statements which take a stance. (Tip: Intentionally create statements that can be supported or refuted by the text.) Purpose - to draw readers attention to the main ideas in a text. One Vision One Team
