.@BarbBlackburn #ESSLC #ESSLC19 Rigour is creating an environment in which each student is: expected to learn at high levels; supported to learn at high levels; and demonstrates learning at high levels
.@BarbBlackburn #ESSLC #ESSLC19 Free resources related to this presentation on the website.
.@BarbBlackburn #ESSLC #ESSLC19 Environment: 1. Motivation 2. Student ownership 3. Safety and security 4. Progress and achievement
.@BarbBlackburn #ESSLC #ESSLC19 Motivation - need to see value. Relevance to individual. Activity - doing rather than sitting. Relationships. Focus on middle 80%
.@BarbBlackburn #ESSLC #ESSLC19 Motivation - need to experience success. Give students opportunities to be successful. Support new teachers to be successful. Support teachers when making change (2nd order). Top job of a principal is to remove barriers to success. #vicpln
.@BarbBlackburn #ESSLC #ESSLC19 Student ownership. Happens when you're not the only one doing things. Need to allow for it (provide opportunities).
.@BarbBlackburn #ESSLC #ESSLC19 Safety and security. Asking for rigorous work is asking students to take risk that they may fail. Celebrate making mistakes. eg Maths class with 'magnificent mistakes' board - learning from mistakes
.@BarbBlackburn #ESSLC #ESSLC19 Safety and security. For teachers to try something new, need to be reassured that if they make a mistake it isn't a problem
.@BarbBlackburn #ESSLC #ESSLC19 Need to recognise progress as well as achievement. eg Principals progress roll - lists everyone that made progress (grade improvement, attendance, read more books) - goal for everyone to be on the list
.@BarbBlackburn #ESSLC #ESSLC19 Expectations: 1. Actions 2. Language 3. My biggest mistake.
.@BarbBlackburn #ESSLC #ESSLC19 Everyone says that they have high expectations - but what does it look like. Research led by @robertjmarzano around expectations and behaviour @MarzanoResearch
.@BarbBlackburn #ESSLC #ESSLC19 High expectations will get higher, low expectations will get lower. End up treating students differently. And they respond differently. Actions reflect expectations teachers may not be conscious of. #vicpln @BastowInstitute
.@BarbBlackburn #ESSLC #ESSLC19 Language matters. Research shows that for every 1 positive comment, a student with special needs hears 8 to 20 negative.
.@BarbBlackburn #ESSLC #ESSLC19 High expectation language. Eric Jensen. Your DNA is not your destiny. @EricJensenBrain
.@BarbBlackburn #ESSLC #ESSLC19 Our language is the most visible indicator of our expectations.
.@BarbBlackburn #ESSLC #ESSLC19 Encourage the positive - protocol to begin meeting w every staff member taking 15 seconds to share a positive about a student from that day
.@BarbBlackburn #ESSLC #ESSLC19 If you don't have motivation and engagement along with it - rigour just becomes hard!
.@BarbBlackburn #ESSLC #ESSLC19 Examples of strategies: 3 alike & red herring
.@BarbBlackburn #ESSLC #ESSLC19 Support and Scaffolding. The higher the level of rigour, the more the need for support.
.@BarbBlackburn #ESSLC #ESSLC19 Examples of support strategies: Layering meaning. Using levelled texts. Once students read easier article, guide back to read grade level article. They've built background knowledge and vocabulary.
.@BarbBlackburn #ESSLC #ESSLC19 Skim problem and look for clue words. Known info. Question. Missing info. Solve problem. Write a sentence explaining solution. And how do you know you are correct. #maths #graphicorganiser #vicpln
.@BarbBlackburn #ESSLC #ESSLC19 Vocab strategy. Write a riddle. No more than 5 lines. Must be true. Do not need to rhyme. Easiest clues towards end. e.g. by year 5 student
.@BarbBlackburn #ESSLC #ESSLC19 Leadership - creating a culture of rigour: rituals & ceremonies; heroes & heroines; stories & tales; rewards & reinforcements
.@BarbBlackburn #ESSLC #ESSLC19 Building a shared vision. Activities: 1... Hot Air Balloon (describe what they see, feel, hear - now, then 3 years from now - have discussion on how to get from here to there)
.@BarbBlackburn #ESSLC #ESSLC19 Building a shared vision. Activities: 2... Vision Letter. Imagine is it a year into the future. Write a letter to a friend describing why the last year was their best ever. Unpack individually or in small groups w staff.
.@BarbBlackburn #ESSLC #ESSLC19 Understand rigour before you lead it! #vicpln
And that is a wrap for the session on rigour. Thanks @BarbBlackburn #ESSLC #ESSLC19 @BastowInstitute @DETVic
