Take away: What will I change first and remain focused on that will create a culture of trust and support which will allow for challenge? Set expectation of consistent regrouping from the start so that students are hearing from a variety of learners and spend time planning, facilitating and feedback to build my “trustworthiness”
Right & Correct vs, Next Steps: I have just enough info to be dangerous…I have learned that grades don’t help learning but ONLY 30% of feedback is EFFECTIVE????? Sweet jimminy; so take away: Going to try feedback with notices and wonders/next steps on our 5 question check in…let’s see what happens!
It’s clear that many of us, as mathematics teachers, agree that assessment for student growth is most beneficial for students but simultaneously, feel pressured by peers, administrators and parents who are unfamiliar with this concept or simply disagree entirely. I want to integrate teaching with math tasks, guided math and assessment for learning connected to standards and struggle with the prioritizing of what to do first. Looking forward to each lessons’ opportunities.
