We only have 40/50/60 minutes chunks I cant cope with too many tools: if its not simple, convenient and powerful I dont want it. I also need tools that can be reused and adapted for different classes.

The ABQuiz

The ABQuiz

Diagnostic

Metacognitive

Hows my driving?

Reflective

What youre seeing today is the result of 3 years experimentation. A combination of ideas from many of mentors and inspired educators. Special mention: Judy Anderson, Andrew Martin, Susan Groundwater-Smith and the online SBG community. Research insights Robert Marzano & John Hattie & a special thank you to my head teacher Peter Hickey who encouraged me!

1. The ABQuiz

What is being learned?

The Concept:

Students at the same table group have (slightly) different quizzes

Extremely simple idea but its amazing how many ways it can help in the classroom.

Many opportunities for collaborative work Resources that keep on giving

but

???

Assessment of learning

What happens?

You can listen to the conversations about skills and content You can give help as needed and encourage students to help each other You will need to explain to some students how teaching other students helps them as well. Your quizzes become the basis for a rich learning experience not just an assessment tool. Instant lessons with tangible, measurable output.

Challenge #1

How to do it

How to do it

Thinking about the type of question: The cognitive difficulty The numeric skills required Try to keep these aspects consistent across the A/B/C/D papers while still making the questions different Small steps of increasing difficulty easier for students to teach each other

Build your collection over time One or two quizzes per topic My long term plan: a quiz to cover every syllabus item

Keep the sheets in order hand out carefully

One solution: have all four answers ready to go put them on the board

Ask students to use a different colour pen to mark their work. Will need some training in how to share/evaluate conflicting answers. Students dont like this at first! They expect you to give the answers.

Some students start asking for more. They get so excited they have mastered the content, they want to show you they can do it and ask for a different version of the quiz.

Can work for new content as well. If half the class already know the work, watch them teach it to their peers faster than you ever could!

Works well if students are comfortable working in groups Table groups of 4 is more likely to succeed. Check they are teaching correctly

Algebra quiz

Algebra quiz

Trigonometry quiz

Trigonometry quiz

Instant revision lessons Build up a bank of resources across the curriculum over time.

Regular formative assessment during the teaching of the topic.

Make it low-stakes: collaboration options encourage the use of IDK encourage students to retake the quiz

Keep the quizzes short: no more than 10 minutes long content is chunked mini-quizzes just one or two questions on half a page mastery is achievable because the hurdle is small and retries encouraged

What do we need to learn? Where are we know?

The Tracking Sheet What do I need to learn? Provide students a framework for the topic A scaffold to help see the big picture

The Tracking Sheet What do I need to learn? Provide students a framework for the topic A scaffold to help see the big picture

The Tracking Sheet What do I need to learn? Provide students a framework for the topic A scaffold to help see the big picture

A scaffold to help see the big picture A way to chunk the topic

How to do it

Syllabus and Program => Tracking sheet in Excel Cross reference to textbooks

What do I want the students to learn? Why does it matter?

What will student do? How will I know they can do it?

The Tracking Sheet What do I need to learn? How well am I doing it? Moving away from marks Moving toward the idea of progress on a journey

N: Not Demonstrated (IDK) S: Starting Out P: Progressing P+: Progressing nearly there

M: Full mastery

The topic test is also a quiz treat it as one!

Were not done with the topic just because the topic test is done!

The Tracking Sheet What do I need to learn? How well am I doing it? A new way to evaluate teaching mastery:

S: Starting Out P: Progressing P+: Progressing nearly there M: Full mastery

Students and the teacher reflect on teaching and learning together.

Honest feedback Find out what your students really think.

Honest feedback Find out what your students really think.

Make it clear the feedback is anonymous. Students will be quite surprised the first time. Some will want to put their name on the form! Some will put their name on the form out of habit. Make a show of the anonymity Stay at your desk. Get students to collect the form

2013

Share the results with the class as soon as possible

Demonstrate a positive and open response to criticism Dont let the class gang up on critics Ask questions if you dont understand!

How much did you enjoy the last few weeks?

Suggestions and Comments for Mr Zuber Good start to the year x 2 Never put Justin Bieber in a maths test I like doing different activities More games on the IWB More food Some activities are useless Don't jump to next topic before finish - want to revise More time to finish off topics Bit less homework Don't talk so much - allow time to attempt answer Start work earlier so less homework x 2 Get straight to exercises so no homework x 2 Like edmodo

Surprises

On my first practicum, I discovered the class love my teaching, but were terrified I wasnt actually teaching them the syllabus

8M3 - 2011

8M3 - 2011

First time I enjoyed maths/understood maths A good year/good teacher

Students yelling out stops others learning Concern about having class favourites x 5

You never answered my questions Sometimes we went too slowly Concern other classes were going faster. Explaining something in several ways is confusing x 2 "When you explain in more than one way it's hard to understand what I should do"

You can fix beginner mistakes, but you need to know you made them!

November 2012

2/3 Unit

Ext 2

2/3 Unit

Ext 2

Time use in class More time in class to do homework. More examples. More time doing work in class if possible.

Explain a bit slower, let us digest the information before changing slides. More exercises in class. More examples "I have to do a few questions to get it. Show us how to do more questions, esp some hard ones. There's a big gap between the example in slides and actual exercise. One example of each type of questions.

Other comments

Less time talking about the pictures.

I think we should go over a lot more exercise/examples rather than spending the whole lesson explaining so we'll know how to do the exercises .

The end of the period isnt the end of the lesson.

The lesson continues in your time thinking about the lesson, exploring ideas on your own and struggling with the questions.

In the Extension 2 HSC paper, you will face questions you have never seen before. Questions I have never seen before. We are trying to build up your mathematical strength and skills to handle this. The challenge is to get the balance right we need you to struggle so you grow, but not so much that you break . I would encourage you to share answers on edmodo. And dont just say Im stuck show where you are up to, what you tried. That could help someone else see the solution.

Summary

I think 2/3 Unit is under control. I will do more exercises for Extension 2 in class : but please dont expect I can show you all the variations. I need to give you the freedom to actually explore and learn them. Extension 2 Time: I will plan for 3:30 to 4:30 with extra examples (no new concepts) 4:30-5:00. I will post the extra examples on edmodo for reference in case you didnt see them. You will probably need to discuss with me or your colleagues if you didnt see the last 30 minutes.

I could talk for an hour about the benefits and rewards of anonymous student feedback

And you will be amazed at how it can help develop your teaching!

The ABQuiz

Can be the basis of a whole lesson for consolidating content and for revision.

Resources that can be reused in many different ways, for many different classes.

Find out what students are thinking and feeling Build a safe learning environment : where the teacher is learning too

Hows my driving?

I can do mathematics Mathematics is fun and useful Theres a place in my life for math

Thank you.
