Over the last three years we have often showcased materials in our workshops and lessons that can be used to support teacher effectiveness.
During these sessions so many educators have asked,
"Where can I get these resources?"
"Can I buy them somewhere?"
"Do you have lessons and instructions so I can use them in my classroom?"
So...now... we have made them available exclusively for you!
MULTIPLE ATTRIBUTE CARDS (MACS)
Multiple Attribute Cards (MACs) were designed to be a tool to create greater leverage into DOMAIN 3. They allow insight to student thinking, strengthen participation, provide assessment information and ultimately allow teachers to make responsive teacher moves based on what students are showing them. In fact many skillful teachers are using MACs to strengthen their teaching expertise in all five components of DOMAIN 3.
These resources can energize and revolutionize your teaching!
BLOOM’S QUESTION/VERB CARDS are used in a number of ways in the classroom. When students understand the importance of deeper thinking questions it opens up another realm of their learning. They have the opportunity to listen to the questions, ask their own questions, respond individually and within teams. They realize the importance of better knowing the text and how to apply their learning.
DEPTH OF KNOWLEDGE QUESTION CARDS
For classroom teachers, the more important question is one of practice: how do we create rich environments where all students learn at a high level? One useful tool, Norman Webb's Depth of Knowledge Levels, can help teachers meet that challenge. Depth of Knowledge (DoK) categorizes tasks according to the complexity of thinking required to successfully complete them.
These resources will get you there!
CHECKING FOR UNDERSTANDING TRAFFIC LIGHTS
TRAFFIC LIGHTS is a checking for understanding tool that students use to self-reflect on their work. The teacher can use it
as a quick check for immediate intervention, or a written formative assessment to assist students and reflect on instruction. It is an excellent tool to use to support
Danielson 3d- USING ASSESSMENT IN INSTRUCTION.
These resources will get this done in your classroom.
