Exploring Student Talk
Where is this Work Going?
Focus on Practice:
Meaningful Student Talk
Eventual Product:
A Scale to Monitor and Describe Student Talk
"Data Table"
In Grade Levels...
It's JUNE! All your hard work fostering student talk has come to fruition. Now, as you watch (with pride) while your students engage in meaningful conversation around a content topic,
what does this look like
I can describe what an "ideal" of developmentally appropriate student talk might look like.

I can identify the purposes of an assessment scale.

I can establish a foundation for future collaboration.
"One Stayed, Two Strayed"
One team member stay.
One team member stray to the next grade up.
One team member stray to the next grade down.
1. Each group member share briefly what is on their card.
2. Dig in:
Where are there ALIGNMENTS between grade level "ideals"?
What DIFFERENTIATES each level from the levels above and below?

Make quick revisions if needed... focus on "presence rather than absence."
EVERYONE please record on your card! You'll be sharing this shortly.
The Purposes of a Scale:
Can facilitate students articulating about and reflecting on their own performance.
Describe what is present, not what is absent
Clear communication of
what expected learning looks like.
Watch for what is present, not what is missing...
In your team, brainstorm what you saw, NOT what you didn't see...
"They were not responding to each other" vs.
"They were focused on their personal ideas only"
We should end up with groups comprised like this:
KK1 K12 123 234 345 455
K 1 2 3 4 5
K 1 2 3 4 5
K 1 2 3 4 5
K 1 2 3 4 5
When we work together... you are invited to:
Let it be messy.
"It is impossible to look good and get better at the same time."
Let process trump product.
present tense
past tense
Let yourself play...
Do not fall into "task avoidance" masquerading as "what if?" or "why it won't work"
Specialists: You choose!
Specialists: You choose!
Woodburn Wolves are...
powerful thinkers, active listeners, and discuss respectfully.
