Design activities for a lesson that represent each quadrant CLOSURE Quadrant D lessons prepare students for life beyond school.
They prepare students for the work force and to be the leaders of tomorrow in the 21st Century. Quadrant A - Acquisition
Experiences focus on recall or discovery of basic knowledge.

Quadrant B - Application
Activities provide definite opportunities for students to apply knowledge, typically to a real-world problem.

Quadrant C - Assimilation
Activities are often complex and require students to often come up with solutions that lead to deeper understanding of concepts and knowledge.

Quadrant D - Adaptation

When you are done reading through the text, talk with your partner about the Rigor/Relevance Framework.

your own definition of RIGOR
your own definition of RELEVANCE Music Mingle With your sticky in hand, stand up.
Once the music starts, begin to weave around the room.
When the music stops, lock eyes with someone across the room.
Pair up.
Each of you share your definitions written on the sticky. BREAK Backwards Planning

"Begin with the end in mind." A performance task is a description of how a student is expected to demonstrate understanding, knowledge and skills. The task may be a product, performance or extended writing that requires rigorous thinking and relevant application.  It is usually written in the third person describing the learning to other educators. Writing Performance Tasks Performance tasks include;
student work that will be produced or performed
whether group or individual
specific learning context
resources students will be provided or have to acquire
setting where students will complete the work
conditions (often real world) under which the work will be done Performance tasks usually do not include;
Assessment. A performance-based implies but does not specify how the performance will be assessed.
Specific direction to the student
Specific equipment list
Homework or reading assignments Students will write a letter to the editor of the local newspaper, on the topic of the environment with a specific reference to a local issue or problem. It will take a point of view, include summaries of research, cite sources and recommend action. Sample Write a performance task for the following essential skill;
Gather, summarize and analyze information from a variety of sources . Developing Rigorous/Relevant Lesson Relationships different than classroom management
described on a continuum which ranges from isolation to mutually beneficial relationships
relationships make learning possible What are some ways you develop relationships with your students? How does the Rigor/Relevant Framework relate to the Common Core State Standards? CCSS FAQ SAY SOMETHING

With a partner, silently and simultaneously read each page.
At the end of each page, stop reading, look at your partner and say something about the page you just read. It can be something interesting or insightful. As a group, discuss some similarities that CCSS and the R/R Framework have in common. Think about lessons you have designed in the past.
Write down one way you will aim to increase rigor, and one way you will aim to increase relevance. NEXT MEETING
October 24 Dr. Daggett Video Think back to all the trainings you've had on Rigor, Relevance, and Relationships (RRR).
Talk with a partner about what you have learned.
At the signal, find another set of partners (not at the same table) and form a quartet.
Discuss what you and your partner talked about regarding RRR. Quartet
