									Different Strategies for meeting the
 needs of all science students…
            Today’s Agenda

 What is differentiated instruction?
 How do assessment and differentiation
  work together?
 What is tiered learning?

 Planning for success
My favorite way to be assessed is...               I know that I have really
                                                   learned something when...


I typically assess students by...          When I think about student learning,
                                           I think that…..

Some teachers                       Some teachers
talk about---                       talk about---

LEARNING                            GRADES

    • Can these two coexist peacefully?
    • Should one receive emphasis over the other?
Most teachers assess students at the
end of an instructional unit or sequence.

When assessment and instruction are
interwoven, both the students and the
teacher benefit. The next slide suggests
a diagnostic continuum for
ongoing assessment.
         On-going Assessment:
         A Diagnostic Continuum

Preassessment        Formative Assessment       Summative Assessment
 (Finding Out)   (Keeping Track & Checking -up)     (Making sure)
            On-going Assessment:

Observation                 Questioning                         Post Test

Assessment refers to what happens on a daily basis in the classroom.
      “…ways to use instruction to inform next steps”

…continual feedback that helps students progress over time.

“Assessment-Instruction Cycle”
       used to be instruct, instruct, instruct, then assess
       now assessment and instruction are interwoven

Students should be learning to self-assess, make adjustments, and
improve performance.
       Not helping students gauge their performance can be costly
       to them.
       We need to give students models for what we are asking
       them to do.
“Assessment is today’s means of
understanding how to modify
tomorrow’s instruction.”

          Take a moment to think about the following questions:
1. At the end of the school day are you and your students exhausted?
2. At the end of the day, Are you done…no work in hand?
3. When someone walks in your room, can they find you
4. Do you really know your students?
5. By the middle of the year, do your students describe your class
as an active participation sport?
6. Do a lot of your students enjoying their first success in science in
your classroom?
7. Do you and your colleagues have a real reason to meet and share?
8. Do you have few classroom management problems?
9. Do you smile frequently throughout the day?
10. Are administrators at a loss on your teacher evaluations/observations?

If you answered “yes” to 5 or more questions, you might be a differentiated
Pair up with a partner
and list several ways you typically assess
students in your classroom.

   READINESS          INTEREST             LEARNING

There are many variations to differentiate using these

over and over again and expecting

 Traditional vs. Differentiation
Traditional Classroom       Differentiated Classroom
 Whole Class-lectures,
  demonstrations, videos,
                             Choice!
  etc.                       Variety including
 Seat Work-collaborative     higher level thinking
  pairs, small group,        Accountability
  summarizing strategies,
 Assessment-feedback,

                            Both can co-exist!!!!
Tier 1 : Basic knowledge, understanding. The student builds on
his/her current level of core information.

Tier 2 : Application or manipulation of the information learned in the
1st layer. Problem solving or other higher level thinking tasks can be
placed here.

Tier 3 : Critical Thinking and Analysis. This layer requires the highest
and most complex thought.
     What can a tier look like?
 Use colors to indicate what level of vocabulary
  readiness you want to assign:
 Green-basic
 Blue-average
 Black-Advanced
 Example: Vocabulary - going from green level
  “need to know” vocabulary to blue level “nice to
 know” vocabulary to black level “for those of you
    who are really motivated to go way beyond
           what’s expected” vocabulary.
        Let’s Try a Tiered Activity
   Readiness based on
    Vocabulary and Prior
    Content Knowledge

Biology teachers -groups of
          3 Please!!!
Anatomy teachers can work
      together in teams

In class, I would place you
   into your groups based
      on pre assessment
The mantra of change….
slowly, slowly, easy, easy!!!

Day 1:Forces
 Chunk-Lecture and ppt on gentics

Check-Quiz on assignments or graded projects
           Grading Criteria

 What is the purpose? Can they answer the
  essential question?

2 options for grades:
5 points for worksheets, 5 points for self
  grading worksheets, 15 points for quiz
5 points for collage/poster, 5 points for 4 or
  more website sources, 15 points for quiz

Days 2-4 are the same format for Tier 1
        Moving on in the unit
 Day 5/6-Lab Tier 2 lesson

Everyone in class will complete a lab
                     Tier 3
Day 6-Research a topic in the library
      -Real world application/debates or use your
  text book
                       Choose 1
 Find out more on genetics lab technician (basic)
 Write a play or activity involving your classmates,
  to explain the various processes that occur in
  meiosis (average)

 Use the documents based questions from Mendel’s
  work (advanced)
Or let them choose a R.A.F.T. (Role, Audience,

 Take one acquisition
  lesson and build in

  with your group.
 Be prepared to
  share in 45 minutes!

Part 2-Differentiated Instruction

Identified 3 ways to differentiate
Take it Slowly, Slowly, Easy, Easy

Developed an Acquisition Lesson
with tiered assignments.

Discussed Assessment criteria-
rubrics, point systems, etc.

 Remember - “Science Stations” is a
  strategy for differentiating instruction.
  Students only need to go to stations that
  will help them in mastering the indicator.
 Have an anchor activity center already in
  place for students who finish their station
  work, or who don’t need to work at a
  station that day.
     Management continued…
 Students do not move from station to station in a
  round-robin style. You determine which station
  and when!
 Build in time at the TS for you to circulate.
 Spend a week modeling the type of work found
  at, and the expectations for each station.
 Collaborate with your team to develop tasks for
  review, practice, and enrichment.
             Trying it out…
         think BIG-start small
 Call me for help!       Use stations only
 Don’t worry about        when the strategy will
  perfection.              help you differentiate
 Try one station at a     your instruction. Not
  time.                    all units work!
                          Model, model, model
          Ticket out the Door
 “What I thought you taught me”

 Choose 5 summary words and develop those
  into a paragraph about today’s content day.

 Thanks for a great work day!!!!
