PLC-F CFT SI – Day 3 Recap & Resources

Day Three for our PLC facilitators involved learning and work centered around setting our SMART Goal for our PLC/PLTs and the corresponding formative assessment plan.  Our plan evolved to:

  • Sharing the big ideas of our brainstormed goals.  We used a post-up to share 2 word summaries of our goal, then an affinity map to find common ground.
  • Beginning to write our goal SMART.
  • Using our SMART Goals rubric to discuss and improve our SMART goal draft.
  • Revising our essential learning and learn target rubrics as part of our formative assessment plan.

Our current SMART goal draft:

During the 2011-12 school year, every four weeks, we, the adult learners (all PLC participants), will demonstrate growth toward the target levels of proficiency (Level 3) in our PLC essential learnings:

  1. We focus on learning,
  2. We work in a culture of collaboration,
  3. We make decisions based on analysis of results;

using Measuring tools:

  •  Guskey-style rubrics used routinely for self and peer assessment with colleagues
  • creating and using an archive system for artifacts (e.g., tables of specifications, common assessments, ELs, data sets of rubric, observation   notes from instruction rounds, meeting agendas

Action step:

  1. Need calendar for when PLC assessments – collected and processed
  2. Create digital archive system (tags to help searching/grouping?)
  3. Use a monthly PLC-F meeting to analyze the results that come in the forms of rubric scores and artifact archives…to plan a next course of action [ANALYZING “STUDENT” RESULTS to make decisions!]
  4. Need to develop an intervention and enrichment pyramid.
  5. Continue to revise and develop our rubrics.

Oh, and while using PollEverywhere, we also found the end of the Internet!  Wow!  Did not know we could do that!
