Collaborative Learning Communities
            at Allen Frear

• At each grade level, teachers work together to
    map out essential learning targets in one subject
    area, either math or language arts.
•   Every seven days, teachers meet in grade level
    teams to discuss data concerning student
    performance based on essential learning targets.
•   The teams use the data gathered in order to
    guide and differentiate their lessons as
    necessary in order to meet individual student
    needs.
Collaborative Learning Communities
  Focus on Results in Two Ways

1. To identify students who need more time
   and support for learning, as well as
   those students who are ready for
   enrichment.
2. To identify strategies to improve upon
   both our individual and collective ability
   to teach each essential skill and concept.
               Essential Questions
• Decisions are based on ~ What is in the best
    interest of our students?
•   Essential Outcomes ~ What do we want our
    students to be able to do?
•   How will we know when they know? How will we
    know if students have met the targets for the Essential Outcomes?
• How will we, as a school, respond to students
    who don’t learn?
•   How will we respond when students do learn?
      The                of a
Collaborative Learning Communities
• Collaborative Learning Communities help to promote
  gains in student achievement, higher quality solutions to
  problems and increased confidence among staff.

• Teachers are able to support one another's strengths
  and weaknesses, test new ideas, support new teachers
  and expand their pool of ideas, materials, and methods.

• We assess our effectiveness on the basis of results
  rather than intentions. Individuals and teams seek
  relevant data and information and use that information
  to promote continuous improvement.
An Example From the
Second Grade Team
      Developing a Collaborative
          Learning Culture
• Created 2nd grade “Essential Outcomes” for ELA
  in reading for the first marking period.
  – Students will be able to communicate in writing by
    restating and answering the question. (This refers to
    the R and A of RARE responses. This is measured by
    a 2 or 4-point rubric.) Color coded acronyms will be
    utilized.
  – Students will be able to communicate the reasons,
    examples, and evidence of a question. (This refers to
    the second R and E of RARE. This is measured by a 2
    or 4-point rubric.) Color coded acronyms will be
    utilized.
         Second Grade Team
 SMART Goal for Component 5 of DPAS II-
              Goal Setting
• SMART Goal:
85% of the students in ELA will be able to
  respond using RARE responses to
  application and analysis (Bloom’s
  Taxonomy) comprehension questions with
  scoring a 3 or higher on a 4-point rubric
  by the end of the 2008-2009 school year.

   1. Think about Wilson and the times you like to be alone. What are some good and bad
   things about being alone?

   2. In the story, Wilson Sat Alone Sara roared at Wilson to be his friend. If you were in
   Wilson’s class, what would you do to help him not be so shy?
   Used Data Analysis to Differentiate
              Instruction
• Collaborative Differentiated Instruction Planning Process
        • Identified Objective of Lesson
        • Listed researched-based strategies that met students’ needs to help
         them successfully reach/meet objective.
       • Determined which strategies were the best.
       • Wrote a differentiated lesson
An Example of a Differentiated Lesson:
Students Scoring a 4 – Challenged students by extending their thinking with higher level questions
and teaching them to make connections to other text in the reasons and examples portion of the
RARE responses.
Students Scoring a 3 – Reinforced reasons and examples by highlighting the text and finding
examples to support answers using the text.
Students Scoring a 2 – Modeled and practiced writing RARE responses. Highlighted the text to
find answers and coded the parts of RARE.
Students Scoring a 1 or 0 – Modeled writing RARE responses, provided guided practice, and
provided independent practice with RARE responses. Highlighted the text and coded the four
parts of RARE. (Focused primarily on the restating and answering portions.)
