The Missing Link: Essential Concepts for Middle School Math Teachers

A video workshop on TIMSS core concepts for middle school math teachers; 8 one-hour video programs, workshop guide, and Web site. This video workshop familiarizes you with four concepts that have been identified by TIMSS (the Third International Mathematics and Science Study) as crucial to your students' future success. You’ll come to better understand the content of these math topics through demonstration of instructional techniques that show you how to involve your students in their own learning. In the “Discovery” session of each topic-pair, Master Teacher Jan Robinson, from the First in the World Consortium, leads the on-camera learner-teachers as they investigate a series of problem-based activities. The learner-teachers customize and expand upon these lessons in their own classrooms, and return with samples of their students’ work. In the “In Practice” sessions, they report on their experiences, evaluate the student work, and develop new instructional and assessment techniques.

Students Collect Evidence of Learning
This is the time of year when teachers are being asked to provide evidence of student learning. If students are collecting proof of their own learning and being asked to select and reflect on what they have learned, then it is a simple matter to have them take their work samples home, along with step-by-step directions for a conversation with their 'home team.'
Ask students to review all their evidence of learning collected to date (notebooks, binders, folders, and so on) and select some key pieces to show their home team.
‘Home team’ to refer to parents, guardians, grandparents, older siblings, extended family and others, since more and more of our students have people other than parents caring for them. Report cards and other legal documents must be given to parents and legal guardians, but this kind of informal communication can be shared with anyone. Consider asking students to show their learning to someone whose opinion they value because they are more likely to attend to the feedback they receive.
Donna Nakamura, an elementary teacher in Hawaii, adapted some self-assessment and goal setting ideas for her grade 5 math class. Take a look at this clip and download the two guide sheets to help your students self-assess their learning in Math and English. Proof Cards ELA (PDF) and Proof Cards Math (PDF).

Math Assessment: A Video Library, K-12

This video library, of 5 video programs from a half-hour to one hour in length, portrays the Assessment Standards and Purposes of Assessment of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics. Showing classrooms where informal and formal assessments are used, the programs help educators sort through many options. They also help teachers see the link between instruction and assessment.

The Missing Link: Essential Concepts for Middle School Math Teachers

A video workshop on TIMSS core concepts for middle school math teachers; 8 one-hour video programs, workshop guide, and Web site. This video workshop familiarizes you with four concepts that have been identified by TIMSS (the Third International Mathematics and Science Study) as crucial to your students' future success. You’ll come to better understand the content of these math topics through demonstration of instructional techniques that show you how to involve your students in their own learning. In the “Discovery” session of each topic-pair, Master Teacher Jan Robinson, from the First in the World Consortium, leads the on-camera learner-teachers as they investigate a series of problem-based activities. The learner-teachers customize and expand upon these lessons in their own classrooms, and return with samples of their students’ work. In the “In Practice” sessions, they report on their experiences, evaluate the student work, and develop new instructional and assessment techniques.

  • The Great Grading Debate

There are many right ways to think about evidence of learning and what counts for evaluation and report [[#|card]] grading. This activity helps colleagues respectfully work towards common agreement around what evidence to include (or not include) in a grade. One of the points Rick Stiggins makes in this resource is that all barriers to including (or not including) a particular kind of evidence need to be removed or transformed before the evidence can be considered.
This is also true of different grading practices such as giving penalties for late work or giving zeros. That is, you and your colleagues need to articulate all the reasons why the practice should continue or not continue; then, remove all the reasons why (or why not). At that point, you are free to move forward.
As you work with your colleagues on coming to an agreement about key aspects of your grading practices, I think you will find this simple but powerful activity to be incredibly helpful. I've included a couple of samples from different groups who have used it successfully. Click here to download the Grading Debate Activity
Here is a short clip from the 42 minutes of video footage found in the Assessment for Learning K-12 resource, which provides facilitators with the materials to present a one-day workshop on Assessment for Learning

Education Quality & Accountability Office (EQAO) Symposiums & Conferences in Ontario

EQAO Conference November 2009 - The Learning Symposium: School Teams Making a Difference Through Knowledge, Support and Action
EQAO Symposium February 2009 - The Learning Symposium: Connecting the Dots Talk About Assessment: Eight Big Ideas to Support Learning for All Students
  • As teachers plan classroom assessments, they often feel torn between two competing demands: that for increased accountability and that for feedback in words, not scores, which research suggests is a hallmark of the most effective assessment strategies. This session will present eight “big ideas” to help teachers simplify the assessment process and achieve a balance of assessment for learning (i.e., to promote learning) and assessment of learning (i.e., for grading and reporting).
