What do we want to accomplish as a cohort? What is our Target goal? How will we know success has occurred? Step 1: Cohort Goal Planning As a team, brainstorm areas that you believe need improvement Use available data such as survey data, observational data, student work, test data….. Consider your school and district goals • Write in bullet form Revisit your cohort impact statement Brainstorm areas you believe need improvement (use available data) Examples – •Articulation between grades and schools •Writing across the curriculum •Student Engagement •Students using evidence based argument •Adapting curriculum for ELL students •Integrating curriculum across content areas •Strategies for teaching close reading Step 2: Cohort Goal Planning Based on your needs and desire to improve student learning, what does your cohort want to accomplish this year? Revisit your cohort impact statement Based on your needs & desire to improve student learning, what does your cohort want to accomplish this year? Example – take 1 - 2 of the items from your brainstormed list Student Engagement Develop systematic routines /procedures, and instructional strategies to increase opportunities for student engagement. Step 3: Cohort Goal Planning Write a specific, measureable goal for your cohort Specific & strategic Measurable Attainable Results oriented Time Bound Revisit your cohort impact statement How will you know success has occurred? Specific & strategic Measurable Attainable Results oriented Time Bound Refine column two to create a smart goal: Example: By June 2016, Teachers will consistently use student feedback, accountable talk strategies, and student choice in designing a lesson series or unit. This will be verified through specific examples found in at least 2 videotaped lessons and student surveys. Team Planning & Next Steps This is what we hope to accomplish: Clarify roles & responsibilities for each member of your team Develop basic timeline for your cohort Outline how you will communicate with one another Begin to develop ideas on how your cohort will evolve during the year Determine how you will manage resources & logistics, possible incentives TEAM ACTIVITIES Share what you learned in your individual groups. Refer to roles and responsibilities and planning notes.
