wonder LAND rules:
Listen when some one talks
Always be Punctual
Deliver on time WONDERLAND A place to discover, learn and experiment with TAL
34 sessions ======> 6 Pillars of TAL DO NOW (1 min)
Find at least three people you don't know, shake hands and introduce yourself
Wait for timer song OBJECTIVES
- Fellows will have understood norms and expectations of PuneTeam and CS sessions.
- Fellows will have a basic understanding of summer student achievement goals and big goals of institute 
- Fellows have a basic understanding of the structure of the assessments and curriculum
- Fellows understand the basic structure of summer school
- Fellows will know how to access the summer curriculum online TAL "A leadership tool of excellence par,
Written by the mighty bright Farr,
I will be essential to your teaching,
Who am I , begin your guessing!" 4 Groups
BIG GOALS for Pune Sessions
Fellows' students will meet 100% of their growth goals
Fellow will reach at least BP level on Big goals,Planning,Exeution and Investment
Fellows will attain at least 80% mastery of session contnts The TAL song:
We're the wonder TALers,
And you can be one too,
For Teaching As Leaders is the thing to do,
To bridge the inequity we do strive,
We're the six pillars exemplified,
Big Goals, Execute, Plan, Invest, Work Relentlessly, Continuosly Improve Effectiveness,
TAL -On ( like Rock on!) :) Goals of the 2011 Teach For India Institute

Student achievement at institute

Student achievement over two years in Mumbai, Pune and Delhi

Student achievement of children across India in the long term. On average fellows’ students will achieve 100% of their individual growth goals FOR MATH ASSESSMENTS
In Maths, students will be given an assessment at the beginning and at the end of institute. This assessment will basically be the same both times, assessing the same skills, although with different numbers or examples.

Take 10 minutes to look at your Maths Diagnostic (beginning of institute) assessments, and look at each objective, followed by the questions that relate to it. Try to get a sense of objectives that you are covering and an idea of what the questions look like.

Growth goals are set for EACH child, based on his/her initial level. These targets are based upon the students who showed strong growth last year.

TAKE THE MATH TEST and SHARE How to achieve these GOALS ? You will teach 2 major areas over the summer – Phonics/PPA and Reading Comprehension.

Phonics/PPA is entirely about learning letter sounds and constructing/deconstructing words. We will begin teaching this in Week 3.

Reading Comprehension will begin in week 2.

During Week 2, : Two people , A and B, are alternating between RC lessons and behaviour/investment lessons,

During Weeks 3-5, :A and B are rotating between Phonics/PPA lessons and RC lessons. ISC- Phonics/PPA Walk-Through:
Begin from Week 3
You will go into further detail on this in a later language session.
Overview of Phonics Page 3 of handout ISC Phonics and Phonological awareness( PPA) Emergent
Key Points:
1) You teach one objective for phonics and one objective for PPA for the week.
2) Each day, you will have 15 minutes of phonics and 15 minutes for PPA.

Focus on developing reading levels and reading comprehension.

The diagnostic assessment itself will be administered over the first 2-3 days, and will be spoken about in greater detail on Friday.
Summer School Structure (Week 2 - 3) ACADEMIC INTERVENTION TIME (AIT)
Academic Intervention Time is a time when all four fellows are present in the classroom at the same time every day.
They work with the same group of students every day on maths and reading intervention (or whatever their group of students needs)
They work with homogeneous groups, based on maths and Reading diagnostics.
Fellows turn in mini-lessons for this portion of the day.
This is a critical time to drive achievement. A lot of learning can happen during this time. It will let you work in smaller groups and offer more targetted support. MATH CURRICULUM DAILY TEACHING
Every day has TWO maths lessons, taught by two different Fellows.

In case where ONE objective is listed for the day, the Fellows need to break it up into two objectives. .For example: SWBAT identify place value of numbers up to 10,000 can be broken into
SWBAT identify place value of numbers up to 100
SWBAT identify place value of numbers up to 10,000

The ONLY day that is different is the first day, where only ONE lesson will be taught by one person. Therefore, for the FIRST TWO days (3 lessons) we suggest you break up the first objective in 3 parts, even repeating one if necessary. This is because the first objective, place value, is very challenging. You will notice that there are only 14 days of objectives scheduled, whereas there are 20 days of summer school. Here’s why:
You actually lose between 2-3 days due to EOI assessments, showcase

This is actually much quicker than you would normally teach these objectives. These extra days are ‘remediation days’ to allow you to reach objectives that students have done poorly on.

Recall which person in each collabroative group is A, B, C, or D and be sure that everyone is clear on what standard they are teaching. Week 2 Institute Week 3-5 Institute Take our your Reading Comprehension ISC
Overview of objectives Go to Page 3:
Shows how that objectives proceeds through on week
The levels refer to levels of text and recommended stories – these are available in the Resource Room. While these stories are recommended, you can use different stories with the same objective.
You will use your diagnostics to determine your level – since we don’t have this information yet, just begin with a grade level text.

Monday: defining vocabulary (words that are crucial to the story or may not be easily understood. 5-8 words)
Tuesday: introduce skills.
Disclaimer: You will begin writing these lesson plans before learning how to customize them for RC

Since 2 people will be alternating RC lessons, they will need to plan it COLLABORATIVELY.

For Wedneday’s PM session, in which you start writing lesson plans, you will ALL practice on math objectives. This is because you will get vital information in English sessions on Thursday/Friday, that will let you right effective lesson plans in RC.

. ENGLISH CURRICULUM Look back at Schedule and identify your role.:
Identify which Fellows are teaching Reading Comprehension during week 1 and exactly when those are being taught.

After that, look at the people who are teaching behaviour/investment mini-lessons during week 1 and exactly when those are being taught. Since 2 people will be rotating the reading comprehension lessons, they will need to plan it COLLABORATIVELY.

Each person will rotate what they are teaching over the summer, ensuring that each person experiences teaching Phonics/PPA, Reading Comprehension, and Maths

The schedule for this week was a little complicated due to assessments and not being able to do Academic Intervention Time until later in the week. For week 3, the schedule will become a lot simpler. Summer School Expectations:
1) Conservative clothing
2) No smoking or drinking

During Non-Teaching Time:
We want you to use to best use this time to continually develop as teachers. Therefore, we expect to see you doing one of the following:
Attending scheduled CS sessions
Working actively on your lesson plans
Actively observing other Fellows
Having observation –debriefs with your PM/FA
Your first Lesson Plans will be due on Friday morning. These are for Monday and Tuesday’s Lesson Plans

Your next due date is on Saturday morning. These are for Wednesday and Thursday’s Lesson Plans.

Finally, on Sunday morning, Friday’s Lesson Plans will be due.
