Mindsets
What are the challenges and
opportunities for students and educators
that arise through different mind-sets?
Co-thinking About Monitoring
• Why monitor?
• When? Who? For what purpose?
• How do we know it is making a
difference?
Awareness
Beginning
Implementation
Partial
Implementation
Full
Implementation
Practising
Describe the pedagogical content knowledge required to support the learning needs of students.
How is this in support of the urgent student learning needs?
Supporting
How will you integrate collaborative dialogue and classroom experiences (in support of the practising)?
Is feedback constructive, timely and differentiated?
What resources (e.g., video clips, research literature, human, time) are needed?
Monitoring (Observing and Describing)
What is the impact on student learning and experience so far? How do you know?
What is the depth of implementation? How do you know?
How does this influence your decision making?
Reflecting, Refining and Innovating
How have you built in time for reflection?
“We must, in other words, become adept at
learning. We must become able not only to
transform our institutions, in response to
changing situations and requirements; we must
invent and develop institutions which are
‘learning systems’, that is to say,
systems capable of bringing about their own
continuing transformation.”
- Donald Schon
Monitoring the Learning of an Organization
• Who is learning what? How will we know?
• Why this learning? How is student learning impacting
classroom, school and system?
Considerations When Monitoring
Key Questions When Analysing Data
Purpose: How is the data useful?
Description: What are the patterns/items of
interest that you notice from this data?
Limitations: What are the limitations of this data?
Inferences and Questions: What can we infer from
this data? What further questions does this data
generate?
Next Steps: What further data do we need to
better understand our learning?

How does a repertoire of pedagogy support learning?
Allan Luke states that we build a
repertoire of strategies.
Why is a repertoire essential for today’s learner?
How might this repertoire support an inquiry habit
of mind?

Describe the elements of inquiry that you notice as
identified in the frameworks.
In the Primary Classroom
• In the Third Teacher monograph, page 6, review the
math processes.
• As you watch the remainder of the grade 2
classroom, identify evidence of student learning as
defined within the 7 Math processes
In an Intermediate Classroom
Identify and discuss evidence of student thinking and
learning through one of the following.
• School Effectiveness Framework (Aurora)
• Achievement Chart – Language and Science
(Oakridges)
• The Four Roles for the Literate Learner, Third
Teacher - page 7 (Main Room)
• Curricula (from the internet (Stouffville Room)

Sphere of Influence: Learning from
Each Other
Morning Regional Breakouts
Guiding Questions

how does your artefact / anecdote
represent / illustrate the impact the
implementation of your SIM plan?
•
how does your artefact/anecdote
influence/inform next steps?
Team Reflection:
Rethink, Revise, Remove
What did you learn from your conversations
with colleagues that can inform the evolution of
your SIM plan?
Lunch: 11:30 – 12:15
Lunch, 11:30 – 12:15
As much as eating a healthy lunch, it’s
important to actually take a break from the
morning’s activities to consolidate your
thoughts, particularly if your work demands
concentration.
