It gives teachers accurate, effective, and efficient feedback to evaluate all students' understanding.
Helps build student self-confidence.

Two Parts to a Lesson Frame
State the learning objective
State how the student will demonstrate what was learned during the lesson
Example: We will identify the components of an effective lesson frame. And, I will create and share a lesson frame with my table group.
3 Zones: Work Area, Lecture, Power Zone
Definition: Teaching in close proximity to 1 student, or a small group of students, or the entire classroom of students.
At your table, identify the benefits to working in the Power Zone.
Frequency - after every 10 to 15 minutes of teacher talk and lasts from 30 seconds to 3 minutes
Group Size- 2 to 4 students
Seed question - pre-planned to guide student conversations
Power Zone
Create a Lesson Frame at your table.
State the learning objective
State how the student will demonstrate what was learned during the lesson
Benefits: On task behavior increases, discipline issues decrease, and student retention increases.
Academic Reinforcement and Recognition
Improvements in achievement, not just high grades
Social and Behavioral Recognition

Necessary Components

What is wrong with the following statements:
1. Good job class, most of you turned in your homework this week.
2. I would like to thank the students that picked up the mess in the hallway.
3. Good job, Joe.
Examples of Reinforcement:
Reward and/or acknowledgment for A's and 10 point improvements from previous exams. (don't tell other students whether it is for an A or 10 points)
Recognize and/or reward students that are on time to class for the entire week.
Definition: Writing for the purpose of organizing, clarifying, defending, refuting, analyzing, dissecting, connecting, and/or expanding on ideas or concepts.

- Assess the critical writing every time, but it doesn't have to be graded every time. It can be assessed by teacher observation, peer-review, self-assessment, use of a rubric, ect.

Examples of Critical Writing:
Sentence on 3x5 card
Bubble chart
Heading with bullet points
Our students need to write more. Check for proper capitalization and periods at the end of sentences.
