Unpacking the outcomes A quick review Consider… Children who possess inadequate motor skills are often relegated to a life of exclusion from the organized and free play experiences of their peers, and subsequently, to a lifetime of inactivity because of their frustrations in early movement behaviour. Seefeldt, Haubenstricker, & Reuschlen, 2007 Triangulation Understand Know Do Essential Questions and Enduring Understandings Ask yourself: What are we hoping students will come to understand by knowing specific, outcome-based information and being able to do certain tasks? Ask yourself: What question(s) can we ask to invite students to clarify their understanding? Coffee break 10 minutes Focused work Get ‘r dun! Arrange yourselves in grade alike pairs. Sign up for an outcome that still needs to be unpacked. Work on outcome. Refer to appropriate rubric and your curricular document. Rubrics and moving forward With a different grade level partner, look at the rubric packages. Choose one rubric to focus on. What does this rubric tell you about this outcome? At the bottom of the rubric, note the skills and knowledge that are essential to students accomplishing “At Grade Level” on this rubric? What do the other levels tell you about the continuum of learning for this outcome? Highlight the words that tell you the differences between each level. Turn to the page in the curricular document containing this outcome. Highlight the aspects of the curriculum that are contained within the rubric. What does the curriculum tell you that the rubric doesn’t? What does/ will the unpacking sheet tell you that neither the curriculum nor the rubric tell you?
