What Makes the Difference?
Anyone? Anyone?
Effective Lesson Frames HaveTwo Components
Daily Learning Objective (We will statements...)
The Closing Question, Product, or Task (I will statements...)
We will learn the components of an effective lesson frame and identify 2 reasons why it is critical to quality instruction.

I will explain why lesson frames are critical to student learning & create a lesson frame to share with my table group.
Now turn to your elbow partner and discuss what you learned about lesson frames.
Must Be Prominently Posted in the Classroom
Practice writing a lesson frame within your academic groups
We will...

I will...
How do students know what is important in your classroom?
How do you determine student comprehension within the instructional portion of your lesson?

SGPT Discuss with your neighbor.
Instructional Filters
Students have built in filters
How do we organize information in our brains?
What causes our brains not to over whelmed?
Life Experiences Create Instructional Filters
Prior Academic Knowledge
Prior Academic Success
Enriched and Varied Life Experiences
Stress Levels
Some students have very few or ineffective filters
Students Benefits are obvious:
Students can follow the lesson better
Higher Functioning students are learning at higher levels more quickly.
Teacher Benefits
Increase teacher efficiency
Students learn at a faster pace
More focused learning environment
Creating Relevance for the students
3 Levels
Move into Academic Groups
Making Connections

Simplest of the Fundamental Five to implement!
Discuss at your table what Cain/Laird say about the importance of creating relevance some examples of across-content and real-world relevance that you could use in your classroom instruction with your first unit.

What is not the POWER ZONE?
Working in the POWER ZONE
On Task Behaviors Increase
Discipline Issues Decrease
Student Retention of the Content Increases
Defined: as teaching and monitoring in close proximity to one student or a group of students
Share with your partner what you know thus far about the importance of the POWER ZONE, location of the POWER ZONE, and what benefits it should give the teacher.

Spotlights our Fragile Students!
We will define Power Zone and explore the benefits of it.

I will list the benefits of being in the POWER ZONE that will enhance my success of the lesson, my classroom management and know the minimum percent of time I need to be working in the POWER ZONE.

Small Group Purposeful Talk
Students are allowed to talk in a structured teacher-driven discussion every 10 to 15 mins.
Groups of 4 or less, for 30 seconds to 3 mins.
Teachers must be in the POWER ZONE
S small
G group
P purposeful
T talk
Pre-planned questions
Purposefully designed to guide the student conversation towards the learning outcome!
Replace "Does anyone have any questions?" with seed questions
Allows teacher to direct the rigor and increase relevance with each SGPT opportunity
Discuss with a new partner what you know about SGPT.
Adults 10 - 15 Mins.
Teenagers 8 - 10 Mins.
What are we doing?
I am lost?
I don't understand?
Write 3 seed questions in your academic group. Make sure that one of your seed questions is for the students to find relevance of the lesson.
Follow up: How could you increase or decrease the rigor of your seed questions?
Develop 3 seed questions on your own and share them in your groups.
Praise and Encouragement
Getting praise/recognition feels good and giving praise/recognition feels better. Let's choose to feel good everyday and every class period.

Discuss how you could use or will use academic praise and encouragement in your class room this school year, especially with your fragile students.
Personalize the
The use of effective encouragement/reinforcement can produce a 20 - 48 percentile gain in student achievement.
Marzano, 2001
What is your classroom environment like?
Is it a home field or home court advantage for your students?
How do we make it like that? SGPT
Power of Positivity
You can really reduce the brain's potential through negative thinking.

Purpose is to:
Refute Analyze
Ideas & Concepts
Writing Critically
Reasons Teachers Steer Away from Writing Critically
Critical Writing is too lengthy
Too time consuming
End product must be polished
Writing should be done in ELA classes
Discuss how you check for comprehension during your direct instruction time in your classroom?
What Critical Writing Is Not!
It is not copying
It is not filling in the blanks
It is not word searches or crossword puzzles (not rigorous)
It is not free writing
Critical Writing Can Be
A simple list
A short comparison paragraph
A quick summary
A mind or concept map
Written exit ticket out of class
A formal essay
With your group, discuss and list examples of possible critical writing activities. How could you use these in your classroom? SGPT
Write a description of how your classroom instruction would change if you implemented the critical writing in your classroom?

Give some benefits of assessing student comprehension before the students leave the classroom.
We believe all kids can learn......

1. based on their ability.
2. if they take advantage of the opportunity.
3. something, and we will create a warm, pleasant
environment for them.
4. and we will do whatever it takes to ensure they achieve the agreed-upon standards.
Mance Park Middle School HISD
Where great learning happens!
What metaphorical connections can you make between this video and our situation today?
How do you help students create instructional filters?
LF's should be written with intent to manipulate thinking at specific levels of rigor.
Evaluate LF for Rigor and Relavance
With your table, summarize Lesson Frames in 1 profound statement.
Write 3 sentences explaining to a new teacher what you expect of teachers on your campus in regards to the Power Zone.
