Transcript of Fundamental Five

2. Working in the Power Zone
Fundamental Five
Examples of Products for Language Arts
I will classify the words of a sentence into the parts of speech
The Fundamental Five are five critical practices that are at the core of highly effective instruction.
It is stated that the use of Fundamental 5 can improve performance for every type, age and group of student.
It helps struggling students survive and compete in academic settings, addressing many RTI Tier 1 concerns.
It assists academically stronger students in achieving at higher levels.
1. Frame the Lesson
The beginning (We will) and the end (I will)
The 2 parts are the daily learning objective and the closing, which is a task or product
Bloom's Taxonomy Wheel
The PRODUCT requires students to use higher order thinking at the application stage or higher.
Classroom Management
These practices are:
Frame the Lesson
Work in the Power Zone
Frequent, small group, purposeful talk about the learning
Recognize and Reinforce
Write Critically
EXAMPLE 1: We will identify the components of an effective lesson frame.
EXAMPLE 2: I will create and share a lesson frame with my table group.
Robert Mager, in his book Preparing Instructional Objectives, describes an objective as "a collection of words and/or pictures and diagrams intended to let others know what you intend for your students to achieve" (pg. 3).

A product is NOT
test or quiz
designed to be graded daily

The Formula for Quality Instruction
I will describe the procedures of a formal debate.
I will create a sentence using a simile.
Examples of Products for Science
Given several examples of each, I will classify materials according to their physical properties as gas, liquid, or solid.
I will estimate the amount of heat given off by one liter of air compressed to one-half its original volume.
From a description of the climate and soils of an area, I will predict the plant ecology of the area.
Power Zone

Build Relationships
Improves Teaching
Address unwanted behavior immediately
Manage transitions

Connect with students personally
Show genuine interest
Build rapport faster
Monitor and adjust personal instruction
Improve student retention
Student achievement increases
Provide immediate feedback
Differentiate when needed
Provide clarification
3. Frequent, Small-Group Purposeful Talk
SEED QUESTION: Practice of using pre-planned questions that guide student conversations toward the desired learning outcome.
Why should we stop & talk purposefully?
It can stretch the rigor & relevance of the lesson
Allows for differentiated instruction
Cements the learning for some
Peer tutoring for those who don’t get it
Keeps students actively engaged in learning
Make a big deal of the small things such as:
A low performing student scores well on a test
A student who never turns in HW turns it in
Personalize and Be specific
4. Recognize and Reinforce
provides students with motivation to continue pursuing academic success, and
the work builds habits which allows for improvement in student performance.
Critical writing is defined as writing for the purpose of organizing, clarifying, defending, refuting, analyzing, dissecting, connecting, and/or expanding on ideas or concepts
It can be a short paragraph, a quick summary, a mind map, or a written “exit” ticket
It is NOT copying or a fill in the blank activity
5. Writing Critically
