Sharing yourself in the bread and wine, You called all to the table, O Lord.
Give me the hunger to be a part of the feeding and the healing of this world. Nourish me with your Grace, So I may work with joy to serve your children. Open my eyes and my heart to recognize those in poverty And increase my awareness of the structures and systems That need to be changed Workshop Objectives Objective 1- Discuss the process to identify instructional strategies that can address the skills that challenge students Objective 2- Discuss the process to identify an assessment plan to monitor the CSIP Objective 3- Discuss the alignment between professional development and the CSIP Objective 4- Identify key tasks in adjusting instruction
as a result of the CSIP Objective 5- Define a process to adjust instruction in response to assessment results Objective 6- Distinguish between technical challenges and adaptive challenges Why are we even here today?

1- Discuss the process to identify instructional strategies that can address the skills that challenge students the most CSIPPart 4 Key Tasks Identify the skills to target for improvement Decide on instructional strategies Agree on what the plan will look like in classrooms Put the plan in writing in the CSIP CSIP Part 4. Strand and Benchmark Identification Teacher teams identify the skills for the CSIP Step 1.Meet in grade-level
teams: Team 1: Pre-K to Grade 3 Team 2: Grade 4 and Grade 5 (Grade 6 can be in Team 2) Team 3: Grade 6, Grade 7, and Grade 8 (can be just Grade 7 and Grade 8) Step 2. Grade-level teams identify ONE to TWO that will be documented on the CSIP A. Access the Curriculum Benchmark Report and the Complexity Report for a grade. B. Silently, review the skills for the strand that is targeted for improvement. Utilize both the priority standards as well as the lowest performing area on ACT ASPIRE 5th Grade DOMAIN: ReadingStandards for Literature OCSCode:

Put the plan in writing in the CSIP Three ways to improve student learning: simultaneously 1. Increase the level of knowledge and skills that the teacher brings to the instructional process 2. Increase the level and complexity of the content that students are asked to learn 3. Change the role of the student in the instructional process Decide on instructional strategies
Read books and articles on the strategies; but dont over think it!!! Avoid just increasing the quantity of academic tasks as an instructional strategy, instead ask: how does this strategy improve my practice? Avoid including multiple instructional stragies for each grade and school. CSIPPart 4 Key Tasks Identify the skills to target for improvement Decide on instructional strategies Agree on what the plan will look like in classrooms View videos that model the use of the instructional strategies; use the Teaching
Channel as a resource Put the plan in writing in the CSIP Protocol: Examine Model Instruction 1. Watch a video of instructional strategy a. What do you notice? Wonder? 2. Report and record noticings and wonderings 3. Discussion: a. What patterns do we see in the noticings? b. How did the model instruction add to our understanding of the instructional strategy? c. What is new about this instructional strategy? How is it similar to other instructional strategies we already use? 18
Protocol: Maitred Protocol 1) Find a partner (or triplet). 2) One instructional strategy will be called out. Discuss that strategy with your partner. How well does this strategy support teaching the skills on the CSIP? 3) Switch partners (or triplets) and repeat, until all strategies have been discussed. 1 9 Instructional Strategy Resources Marzano Research Click here to

Questions to consider regarding professional development Is the professional development our school provide intensive, ongoing, and connected to practice? Does the professional development our school provide focuses on the teaching and learning of specific academic content? Is the professional development our school provide connected to other school initiatives? Does the professional development our school provide builds strong working Characteristics of Effective Professional Development 1. Professional development should be
intensive, ongoing, and connected practice 2. Professional development should focus on student learning and address the teaching of specific curriculum content 3. Professional development should align with school improvement priorities and goals 4. Professional development should build BREAK Objectives Objective 4- Identify key tasks in adjusting instruction as a result of the CSIP Objective 5- Define a process to adjust instruction in response to assessment results Objective 6- Distinguish between technical challenges and
adaptive challenges Key Task in Adjusting Instruction: What skills? Which skills on the CSIP have been taught and assessed? What is the evidence that shows students are learning the skills identified on the CSIP? Key Task in Adjusting Instruction: What evidence? Which skills on the CSIP have been taught and assessed? What is the evidence that shows students are learning the skills identified on the CSIP?
ACT Aspire Interim Monitoring ACT Aspire Interim Monitoring ACT Aspire Classroom Assessment(s) ACT Aspire Classroom Assessment(s) Key Task in Adjusting Instruction: What Evidence? 1. Teacher teams work collaboratively to collect and analyze short-term data and medium-term data to evaluate the impact of the action plan on student learning
Key Task in Adjusting Instruction: What Evidence? 2. Teacher teams compare short-term and medium-term assessment results to individuallevel and group-level student learning goals. Compare student results to the learning target. Key Task in Adjusting Instruction: What Evidence? 3. Questions to respond to when analyzing tasks for short-term assessments: First: What is the actual work that students are being asked to do? Second: What do you have to know in order to engage the task? Third: What is the tasks Depth of Knowledge level?
Fourth: What is the distribution of performance among students in the class on the task? Fifth: If you were a student and did the task, what would you know and be able to do? Levels of Complexity: Webbs Depth of Knowledge 4. Key Task in adjusting instruction: what evidence? Teacher teams implement and assess the instructional strategies described in the action plan. 5. Teacher teams use short-term and medium-term data to assess the impact of the action plan on student
learning. Answer the question: Are these instructional strategies delivering the desired results? 6. Teacher teams use data about implementation and student learning to make adjustments to instruction. Are these instructional strategies delivering the desired CSIP: Grade 3 reading results? Benchmark: 3.RL.IKI.9 Compare and contrast the themes, settings, and plots of stories written by the same author about the same or similar characters Strategy: Does the story have to be set there, and then? from
Reading Strategies (Seravallo, page 151). Think about the setting of the story. Consider if the settings is just background, or it it plays an important role in the story. One way to do this is to think, If the story were set someplace else, or at a different time, how would the story be any different? Then think, Based on the setting the author has chosen, what impact does the setting have on the story? Are these instructional strategies delivering the desired results? Adjusting the strategy on the CSIP Identify a new strategy(ies) to teach the benchmark skill Better lessons: theme lesson
Objective 1- Identify key tasks in adjusting instruction as a result of the CSIP. Objective 2- Define a process to adjust instruction in response to assessment results Objective 3- Distinguish between technical challenges and adaptive challenges Whole-group or Small-group instruction? The optimal percent of proficiency to determine adjusting to small-group instruction is 66%.
The optimal success rate for fostering student achievement is 80%. A success rate of 80% shows large groups of students are learning the material. Adjust from Whole-group Instruction to Differentiated Small-group Identify the skills on the CSIP that have a Instruction
proficiency rate of 66% or greater. Provide differentiated small-group instruction: those not proficient and those that are proficient Identify the skills on the CSIP that have a proficiency rate that is less than 66%. Wholegroup instruction continues until a proficiency rate that is equal to or greater than 66% is reached. Objective 1- Identify key tasks in adjusting instruction as a result of the CSIP Objective 2- Define a process to adjust instruction in response to assessment results Objective 3- Distinguish between technical challenges and adaptive challenges Technical and Adaptive
Challenges What is the difference between technical and adaptive challenges? Why is this important? Technical Challenges vs TechnicalAdaptive Challenges Adaptive Challenges Challenges Problems that can be solved through the Problems that require leadership knowledge of experts or senior authorities are those that the experts cannot Problems reside in the head; solving them solve requires an appeal to the mind, to logic,
The solutions lie not in technical and to the intellect answers, but rather in people The solutions are clear themselves Problem reside in the heart; to solve them, requires changes in peoples values, beliefs, habits, ways of working Schools face technical challenges Establish a mentoring program for beginner teachers Improve the technology infrastructure to enhance teaching and learning
Organize field trips and assemblies Schools face adaptive challenges Create, implement, and monitor an authentic school improvement plan Provide meaningful performance evaluation that improves teachers practice Provide students with high quality instruction that requires student collaboration and critical thinking Why is this important? The work of school leadership is not technical work. That is, the work is not made up of precise procedures done either correctly or incorrectly. The skills on the CSIP are the ones that challenge
students the most on the summative test. A technical solution: use the same instructional strategies and tasks from prior years. Adaptive solution: use new instructional strategies and tasks to target these skills. Complete the key tasks from Objective 1 of this webinar Have teachers collect and analyze results from short-term and medium-term assessments Identify the skills that show a proficiency rate at or above 66% Have teachers share how they will adjust instruction in response to assessment results Questions?
