TBT protocol Review -Roles and Dates

Date of 1st meeting: Pre-test Data Steps 1-4Date of 2nd meeting: Post-test Data Step 5It will be helpful to keep the roles consistent through a TBT cycle, but that is a team decision. If you have a strong team member it is not necessary to rotate roles.TBT Protocol Review - Assigning Roles and Stating Definition of Proficient for the Standard

These two items are determined when the Common Formative Assessment is created . This occurs outside the formal TBT Process, but is critical to getting to the instructional strategies in step 3. As a team discuss what you expect the students to know and be able to do at the Proficient level per your assessment.TBT Protocol Review -STEP 1

The new form is an active Excel spreadsheet that will automatically calculate percentages for you in order to save time.This error message will show until actual data is entered. There is nothing wrong with the spreadsheet. It merely indicates you are working with a live spreadsheet formula.TBT Protocol Review Performance Groups in STEP 1

It should be noted that in the form there are only two performance groups that are tracked after your team has given the pre-test. TBT Protocol Review - STEP 2

The Strengths and Weaknesses boxes will expand when you type into them

This is intended to determine what students knew or didnt know when they took the Common Formative Assessment

This section DOES NOT require an item analysis of every question on the assessment.STEP 3- Instructional Strategy vs. Activity

Here is where teams should spend most of their time during the TBT meeting. An instructional strategy is chosen that the team agrees to use in teaching students in each of the performance levels. It should be noted that teachers only commit to using the same instructional strategy. They can use a variety of different activities that support the instructional strategy in their classrooms .TBT Protocol Review Strategy vs. ActivityStep 3: Determine rigor, relevance, strategies and activitiesRigor Blooms TaxonomyRelevance Depth of applicationStrategies Marzano/ CF ToolkitActivities CF Toolkit /Model CurriculumTBT Protocol Review Step 3Rigor - Level of Blooms

TBT Protocol Review STEP 3- Proficient OutcomeRemember this is transferred from the definition of proficient box on the front page of the form. This box should not require discussion. Press Alt + Enter in order to not leave the text box.

TBT Protocol Review STEP 3- Advance OutcomeIn Step 3 the team begins to differentiate for instruction. Here the team needs to determine what students who are already proficient on the pre-assessment will need to know and be able to do to become advanced on the post-assessment.

TBT Protocol ReviewSTEP 3- S.M.A.R.T. GoalsSMART goals will automatically fill from the data entered in Step 1. Remember the goal is 100 percent proficient or advanced. Teachers will need to set a date for when they want to achieve their goals. STEP 4- Questions for Reflection

This box will expand as the team types in their reflection on how and when they will implement the agreed instructional strategies. Not all of the questions have to be addressed at each meeting.TBT Protocol ReviewStep -4 Questions for ReflectionSTEP 5- Chart and Collect Data

This is where teams can assess how close they were to meeting their S.M.A.R.T Goals. Here teams can provide information to their BLT about support needed. TBT Protocol ReviewStep 5 Chart & Collect DataLets Practice

Teacher-based Team practiceYour TurnA team member needs to access the CF TBT protocol from the S drive in the T & L folder under DLT.BLT needs to use information provided to complete steps #1-5 of the TBT protocol (electronically).

Why is this work so important?Clearly outlines what is quality collaboration Aligns with high achieving schools and teacher-team researchBuilds systems and structure for current initiatives as opposed to flavor of the monthLinks to other workTeachers understanding of Common Core/state standardsMatch rigor of instruction to assessmentInstructional technology practicesFormative assessment OTES

The OIP and OTES are aligned!

Accentuate this point.

If teachers follow the TBT 5 step process well, they will be addressing many of the goals of the OTES. The TBT assessments, protocols, shared strategies, etc. Could be direct evidence to support the teachers work toward OTES goals.

Whenever OTES starts in Lakewood, we will be prepared. If we continue to do the good work of Teacher-based Teams we will be directly performing work that is aligned to OTES. These are not separate items, and certainly not additional work.34Connections between the important workOIP GoalsImprove classroom instructionTeachers collaborating are making instructional decisions based on formative assessmentOTES GoalsImprove classroom instructionA teachers instructional planning and assessment reflects alignment to standards, collaborative practice, and formative practicesFrom hereFebruary 4 Administrative Council instructional; 9:15 a.m. at Price- formative assessment activityFebruary 5 ERW; Facilitate formative assessment activity with staff membersFebruary 14 - Waiver Day; BLT members demonstrate and facilitate use of TBT protocol Waiver Day2-14-2014All in your buildings!Opening message on day and the related activitiesOverview of Teacher-based Teams importance & connections to other workTBT practice activity led by principal and trained BLT members for all teachersFormative assessment with teams or individual teachersExit survey online at completion of dayThanks!For your attention to our work todayFor being leaders in each of your buildingsFor helping the students of Cuyahoga Falls be successful by our collaborative work as professionals
