Author of Visible Learning and Visible Learning for Teachers Synthesis of over 800 meta-analyses relating to achievement Determined the Effect Size of the strategies Almost any intervention can stake a claim to making a difference to student

learning Any intervention with an effect size over 0.0 has an effect on student achievement This has lead to a culture of everything works the bar is set to 0. According to Hattie, this is dangerous! For

any intervention to be considered worthwhile, it must have at least an average effect size. Effect size (d) = 0.40 is the hinge point for identifying what is and what is not effective. Category Definition

Unwrapping Standards with Students - Process 1. 2. 3. 4. Underline the verbs. Circle the nouns.

With your students, define any unfamiliar words. Write the words on the standard so that the students have something to reference during the lesson. When you teach, use the language of the standards. Encourage your students to use the language of the standard as well. Provide scaffolding (definitions) to ensure that all students can understand the standard.

Example: SS7G12 Evaluate how the literacy rate affects the standard of living. Example: Step 1: Underline the verbs. SS7G12 Evaluate how the literacy rate affects the standard of living.

Instructional Delivery The teacher effectively engages students in learning by using a variety of instructional strategies in order to meet individual learning needs. What does instructional delivery mean? Instructional delivery is a process in which teachers apply a repertoire of instructional strategies to communicate

and interact with students around academic content, and to support student engagement. Direct Instruction What is direct instruction? Is it the same as lecture? No.

Teacher decides the learning intentions and success criteria, makes them transparent to the students, demonstrates them by modeling, evaluates if they understand and ties it together with a closing. Seven Steps to Direct Instruction 1.

2. 3. 4. Prior to lesson teacher has a clear understanding of the learning intentions Determine the success criteria and inform students about the standards of performance Build commitment and engagement

hook Present the lesson using a variety of methods Provide opportunities for guided practice 6. Allow for closure of the lesson. 7. Allow for independent practice. 5. Lecture Method

Instructors role Effective method for providing Facts Rules/regulations Clarifications Examples Definitions Lecture Method

Advantages One speaker can reach people in any size group Format is familiar to students They are aware of what to expect and what is expected of them. Interactive lectures increase student retention of information by 20%.. Student accountability for learning during lectures increases retention of information by 55%.

Lecture Method Disadvantages Limited student/instructor interaction Lack of student feedback Limited use of senses Overcoming the disadvantages

Generate student interaction Include discussion, illustration, demonstration, and activities Avoid presenting too much information at once Provide supplemental information Lecture Strategies Collaborative Pairs/ Numbered Heads

Pause Procedure Study Group/ Feedback Open-Ended Responsive Think/Write/Discuss Demonstration How do I know which lecture strategy to use? Content Students Resources

Be available prepared for the unexpected problems technology goes down, copier is broken, etc. Have a back-up plan. Lecture Length When

you are planning a lesson, how long should you plan to lecture? Discussion Method Benefits Allows interaction between instructor and students Instructor talks with the group, not to the group

To be effective, students must have a basic knowledge of the subject Works bet for smaller groups of 10 15 students Discussion Method Guided Discussion Instructor presents a topic

Ideas are discussed in an orderly exchange and are controlled or guided Gain knowledge from other members, modify their ideas, or develop new ones Demonstration Method Purpose The act of showing how to do something or how something operates

Demonstration Method Guidelines Know what it is and its learning objective Practice every step Check all equipment and accessories Repeat step-by-step while explaining each step slowly Allow students to ask questions and clarify any misunderstandings

Varying Instructional Styles Is it important to vary your instructional method? Why or why not? Lets look at a standard . SS7G3 The student will explain the impact of location, climate, and physical characteristics on population distribution in Africa.

a. Explain how the characteristics in the Sahara, Sahel, savanna, and tropical rain forest affect where people live, the type of work they do, and how they travel.

Teacher Led

Teacher lectures on the four target physical features, including referencing the standard and element Students take notes about the effects of physical features on population distribution, work, and transportation from a teachercreated PowerPoint Teacher quizzes students over physical features and notes Students write explanatory essay using a teacher-developed rubric

Instructional Groups Teacher posts and references the standard and element Teacher groups students based on criteria important to instruction (could be reading level) into four groups Each group researches one of the four target physical features Each group prepares a presentation on how its target physical feature affects population distribution, work and transportation

Students take notes on each groups presentation Students write an explanatory essay using a teacher-developed rubric (could focus on all four physical features or on one physical feature)

Teacher Facilitated Teacher posts and references the standard and element Students use teacher-created Web quest to investigate the four target physical features

Students predict how the physical features might impact population distribution, work, and transportation; then check their responses against information provided by the teacher Students use their research and predictions to write an explanatory essay using a teacherdeveloped rubric Student Initiated Students individually review the standard and element Students decide as a group how they will

divide research and reporting on that research Students discuss their research findings, including the effects of the target physical features on population distribution, work, and transportation Flexible Grouping What is it? Grouping and regrouping students based on DATA in order to provide appropriate instruction

modes Document strategy in your Strategy Log. Teaching Styles Manner in which a teacher manages instruction and the classroom environment. Major Teaching Styles Permissive Authoritarian

Democratic Think Pair Share How would you define each style? Permissive establish few rules and tend to be inconsistent in enforcing rules or applying consequences for misbehavior Authoritarian teachers establish the

classroom rules, learning is teachercentered, students role is to comply with the rules and complete all work satisfactorily Democratic establish a classroom environment that includes input on nearly all issues of management, voting privileges for students, and generally positive reactions to student desires and needs Get with your circle partner. 2. Discuss pros and cons of each

teaching style. 3. Use the Teaching Styles Worksheet to record your thoughts. 1. Authoritarian and democratic teaching styles tend to be the most effective because disruptions in the classroom are kept to a minimum.

Teachers who exhibit a permissive teaching style sacrifice an orderly classroom by trying to allow the students to police themselves. Permissive teachers are generally hands-off, encouraging students to develop independence an individual responsibility. Which type do you think most beginning teachers use? Which type do you think you lean toward?

Beginning teachers tend to be permissive in their dealings with students. Students quickly pick up on these tendencies to overlook minor infractions. Classroom control typically suffers as a result.

It is recommended that new teachers develop a teaching style that leans toward authoritarian or democratic style personality types. Explicit Vocabulary Instruction Pair Reading Hattie Hattie, cont.

The most effective vocabulary teaching methods included providing both definitional and contextual information, involved students in deeper processing, and gave students more than one or two exposures to the words they were to learn. Institute of Education Sciences

Adolescent Literacy Practice Guide Recommendation 1 Provide Explicit Vocabulary Instruction Level of Evidence: Strong University of Oregon Center for Teaching and Learning

69 Research Includes Students From: Upper Elementary Middle/High School Diverse Geographic and Socioeconomic backgrounds 70

Recommendations For Teachers Of: Reading and language arts classes Content area classes such as social studies and science, CTE

71 Research to Support the Recommendation Vocabulary carries a large share of the meaning in content area texts. Implication: Integrating explicit vocabulary instruction into subject areas enhances students ability

to acquire textbook vocabulary. 72 Research to Support the Recommendation A meta-analysis indicates the probability of learning meanings of new words while reading is relatively low--about 15%. Implication:

Explicit vocabulary instruction is needed to ensure all students acquire print vocabulary needed for academic success. 73 Research to Support the Recommendation Words are best learned through repeated exposure in multiple contexts and domains.

Implication: Many content area texts contain specialized vocabulary students may not encounter outside their textbooks. Therefore, repeated exposures in varying contexts must be planned. 74 Explicit Vocabulary Instruction Two Major Approaches:

Direct Instruction in Word Meanings Instruction in Strategies to Promote Independent Vocabulary Acquisition Skills The two approaches are complementary rather than conflicting.

75 How to Carry Out the Recommendation 76 1. Dedicate a portion of each regular classroom lesson to explicit vocabulary instruction.

77 2. Use repeated exposure to new words in multiple oral and written contexts and allow sufficient practice opportunities. 78

3. Give sufficient opportunities to use new vocabulary in a variety of contexts through activities such as discussions, writing, and extended reading. 79 4.

Provide students with strategies to make them independent vocabulary learners. 80 Other Considerations Although explicitly teaching vocabulary in each content area lesson requiring

reading will take a few minutes of additional timeit will pay substantial dividends for student learning in the long run. 81 Marzano Robert Marzano & Debra Pickering developed a six-step process for teaching new vocabulary.

2 categories: Introducing the term Reinforcing the term Direct Vocabulary Instruction Example Read the example. Discuss the following with your circle partner.

What step of Marzano & Pickerings process does this represent? Is this activity enough for the students to have the words become part of their speaking and writing vocabulary? If not, what else does the teacher need to provide? Vocabulary Activities Handout
