I can identify, explain and use the features of informational texts to construct meaning. Success Criteria

use specific terms and language that is meaningful to students
what successful attainment of learning goals look like
provide student with tools to monitor learning and determine level of proficiency with respect to learning goal In the classroom, we foster student growth by clearly defining learning goals, scaffolding learning experiences, providing varied opportunities for practice and giving meaningful feedback. Growing Success, 2010 Learning Goal Example - ENG4U - Reading for Meaning
Expectation 1.5

extend understanding of texts, including complex
and challenging texts, by making rich and
increasingly insightful connections between
the ideas in them and personal knowledge,
experience, and insights; other texts; and the
world around them

Learning Goal

We are learning to use what we know and our experience with different texts and the world to help us understand what we are reading.

Success Criteria Example ENG4U - Reading for Meaning - Expectation 1.6
link it to what I knew before
talk about my own experiences
relate to something I have read
talk about others' experiences When we invest time up front to build the vision of what the students are to learn, we gain it back later in increased student motivation and the resulting higher quality work. Chappuis, 2009 Peer and self assessment

• providing feedback that helps learners move forward;
• through targeted instruction and guidance, engaging students as learning resources for one another;
• through targeted instruction and guidance, helping students understand what it means to “own” their own learning, and empowering them to do so. Learning Goal for this Session
