Gunning Chapter 13
What are the goals and objectives for your language arts classroom. Post yours and then comment on the goals of your peers.
Need somewhere to start try:
- What do you imagine your teaching practices to be?
- How will your teaching practices change the world?
- How can we make this journey together?
Let's work on those portfolios. Get your lesson plans done and add your assessments....really begin with how you want to measure growth. In the space or the reader?? Why do we will always say The student will be able to...Maybe it should be the space of learning will encourage....
Objectives and Assessment
As I said all semester. Maybe our learning spaces and not our students should be the variable of interest. That being said you will need to submit to EdTPA, it is a lesson plan genre designed to meet institutional, not learner, needs.So this activity helps to scaffold that understanding.
So use my feedback and keep a tight association between your measures of growth and your stated objectives. Make your you derive those objectives from grade level expectations.I also, and you know ,I refuse to rubricize everything, ask you to submit a rubric for each lesson plan. This is to make sure I can tell you know assessment techniques and how to design criterion and/or scales.
Another common pattern I am noticing as I work on video feedback is differentiation. You are well skilled at modifying instruction based on student differences. In this class I want you to focus on just CONTENT differentiation. Not because you would do this in the real world...you wouldn't but I need to ensure your own knowledge growth around expectations of teaching literature.
