for Student Achievement

Matters Without
Apology •All students need lessons that are coherent, relevant, powerful, transferable, authentic, and meaningful.
•A curriculum that is good for students pushes them a bit beyond what they find easy or comfortable.
•Plan to encourage your students to “work up” – that is, be ready to match students to tasks that will stretch them.

-Carol Ann Tomlinson
In a differentiated
classroom... Champion teachers hold all students to high expectations and require all students to try their best. No Opt Out is rooted in the belief that students will participate and are responsible for their learning.

Teachers use cues that “offers additional useful information to the student in a way that pushes him or her to follow the correct thinking process”

(Lemov, pg. 33) Categories of Right is Right:

Hold out for all the way – encourage students to expand on their answers

Answer the question – Hold students responsible for the question you asked

Right answer, right time –
If a student jumps ahead repeat your original question

Use technical vocabulary – Technical language increases student vocabularies Right is Right is a technique that
facilitates setting high expectations:

•Expect fully complete answers to questions
•Expect students to expand on answers
•Expect students to do the thinking
•Expect students to correct their answers
when given cues
•Expect students to make adjustments in
how they understand a problem or concept
There are 6 ways a teacher can Stretch It:
•Ask how or why
•Ask for another answer
•Ask for a better word
•Ask for evidence
•Ask students to integrate a related skill
•Ask students to apply the same skill in a new setting
The medium is the message:

”To succeed, students must take their knowledge and express it in a variety of clear and effective formats to fit the demands of the situation and of society.”

(Lemov, pg. 47) Format Matters requires that students respond…
•Using correct grammar
•Complete sentences
•In an audible manner

•Assuming something will be boring
•Blaming the study of the content on state/district mandates
•Using materials that dilute content or standards
•Thinking something is too hard or complex for some students
•Lowering student expectations
(Lemov, Ch. 1)
Make no excuses…
•Find ways to make content interesting and engaging
•Provide rigorous lessons that follow the standards
•Make all curriculum standards accessible to all students so that they are prepared well for their next level.
•Be consistent in holding all students to the same expectations
Ways Teachers Make Apologies for Content and Students:
