Transcript: There and Back Again A School's Journey We were "effective." We didn't change in any substantial way but we were put in Continuous Improvement. What happened? The legislature implemented "Value Added". It sounded like a simple idea. Our school would be evaluated on whether our students made a years growth for a years instruction. Why did the legislature add "Value Added". It was added to allow poorly performing schools, like charter schools, to show they were making progress. We were making indicators to the same level as always but we were not meeting "Value Added". Something was not working! After asking a lot of questions about how to fix this problem, we learned that it wasn't as simple as a years growth in a year. "Value added is calculated from numerous factors that go into a formula that is very complicated. One definition of crazy is: Doing the same thing over and over expecting different results. The rules of the game had changed. Staff and Administration would need to make changes. We started looking for answers. We found a book that explained the nine teaching strategies research tells us give maximum outcomes. They are: 1. Identifying similarities and differences -45% 2. Summarizing and note taking - 34 3. Reinforcing effort and providing recognition 29% 4. Homework and practice - 28% 5. Nonlinguistic representations - 27% 6. Cooperative learning - 27% 7. Setting objectives and providing feedback - 23% 8. Generating and testing hypotheses - 23% 9. Questions, cues, and advance organizers - 22% Research also suggested a framework to use to present the lessons.This framework is called "GANAG" which stands for the following: G - Set the goal for the lesson A - Access prior knowledge N - New Knowledge A - Activity parallel to the goal statement G - Students generalize what was learned This year we started with expectations: 1. "I can" statements on the board - every day...every lesson *From content standards *Posted in a format that can be read by students anywhere in the room *Shared with students prior to starting *Students interact with the goal *At the end of the lesson there will be an activity that requires the student to reflect back on or react to the learning goal 2. Read Improving Student Learning One Teacher at a Time 3. Choose an instructional strategy from last years book study. This goal is the teachers focus during weekly lessons and will be a part of the (3) lesson reflections completed this year and will be a strategy used 2-3 times every week. 4. Each teacher will be observed by administration for the purpose of improving the use of the "GANAG" lesson format and the teacher's personal instructional strategy goal. 5. Each teacher will observe one other teacher in the building who is working on the same instructional goal. 6. Staff meetings - one per month 2:45 - 4:15.The focus of this years staff meetings will be completing pacing guides, writing assessments and improving instructional strategies. Our two hour late start looks like this: 7:45 - 8:45 In depth study of the parts that make up a lesson plan. For this study we will be looking in depth at all the parts of the GANAG lesson plan format and learn how to make the most effective lessons. In addition there will be an opportunitity to explore the latest brain research and tackle establishing common teaching methadology and terminology to enhance continuity from building to building and grade level to grade level. 8:45 - 9:45 Book Study for - Improving Student Learning One Teacher at a Time - Along with the chapter by chapter study, three lesson reflections will be expected using each teacher's personal instructional strategy goals. For each two hour delay teachers will be completing graphic organizers for the chapter to be shared with the group. We are on a jouney back to Effectiveness and then on to Excellence.
Transcript: Fire Alarm Systems By Jake Caughell Why we need Fire Alarm Systems A Fire Alarm systems main purpose is to identify a developing fire emergency as fast as possible, and to alert the building's occupants and local fire department. Today you have about three or four minutes to escape a house fire. This is mainly due to newer homes and buildings have furniture and combustible material inside them that burn faster. In less than 30 seconds a small flame can turn into a major fire. It only takes minutes for thick black smoke to fill a house or for it to be engulfed in flames. Why we need Fire Alarm Systems Fire is a chemical reaction between oxygen in the air and some kind of fuel. For a fire to take place, you have to heat up the fuel to a high enough temperature for it to ignite. In every building there is many combustible material that can fuel a fire. How fires start How fires start The types and parts of Fire Alarm Systems There are two main types of Fire Alarm Systems: Addressable and Conventional. Conventional fire alarms include a number of different zones that are connected to your central control panel. Addressable fire alarms are also called intelligent systems as they monitor the fire alarms in your building. Each alarm has its own address which allows you tell which ones are working. The types and parts of Fire Alarm Systems #1 Components - Fire alarm control panel (FACP) - Initiating devices - Power supply - Notification appliances #2 Devices - Manual pull stations/manual call points - Smoke detectors - Water flow switches - Rate-of-Rise and heat detectors - Valve supervisory switch - Carbon monoxide detector - Notification appliances - Magnetic door holder Passive and Active Fire Protection The buildings fire and life safety components are reffered to as either passive or active features. Passive and Active Fire Protection - Roof construction types - Fire rated walls - Fire rated floors and ceilings - Fire rated doors - Interior finishes - Smoke/Fire dampers - Means of egress - Fire stops Passive Passive - Sprinkler systems - Standpipes - Detection and alarm systems - Smoke controlled systems - Building configuration - Special hazard systems - Elavator controls - Vegatation management Active Active Ontario Building Code references In Ontario there is only one building code that is universal throughout the province for both large and small municipals 184.108.40.206. installation and Verification of Fire Alarm Systems (1) Fire alarm systems, including those with voice communication capability, shall be installed in conformance with CAN/ulc-S524, "installation of Fire Alarm Systems". (2) A fire alarm system shall be verified in conformance with CAN/ulc-S537, "Verification of Fire Alarm Systems", to ensure satisfactory operation. Ontario Building Code references Part 3: Fire Protection, Occupant Safety and Accessibility Part 3 contains the requirements with respect to health and fire safety, which depend upon the use of a building and type of occupancy. The section contains material relating to occupancy classification, occupancy and fire safety within floor areas, exit requirements, requirements for service spaces and health requirements. 220.127.116.11. Compliance Alternatives (1) A compliance alternative shown in Table 18.104.22.168.A., 22.214.171.124.B., 126.96.36.199.C., 188.8.131.52.D/E. or 184.108.40.206.F. may be substituted for a requirement contained in Part 3 Part 3 Buildings Part 3 Buildings Part 9: Housing and Small Buildings Part 9 provides detailed requirements for the construction of houses and small buildings up to 600m2 per floor and 3 storeys in height, and applies to occupancies other than assembly, care, or detention and industrial-high hazard A compliance alternative shown in Table 220.127.116.11.A., 18.104.22.168.B., 22.214.171.124.C., 126.96.36.199.D/E. or 188.8.131.52.F. may be substituted for a requirement contained in Part 9 Part 9 Buildings Part 9 Buildings Qualifications and Fire Alarm systems OBC refferences 184.108.40.206.
