ESACC staff geared our 9-29 in-service around NEE’s Unit of Instruction (UOI). Two years ago, ESACC developed and implemented our first UOI. Last year, the staff reflected and revised the same unit of instruction, however, this year each teacher begins anew. The learning goals for our session were:
To begin, previous UOI struggles and successes were discussed. Feedback was provided to aide in the development of our new UOIs. We were also able to integrate Technical Skills Attainment (TSA) objectives in our UOI, as TSA assessment scores are a targeted area for school-wide improvement.
The data collection process has evolved at ESACC and adds a new approach with instructional units. In the past teachers collected data within each of their programs. This year, we’ve taken another step and are collecting data as a whole school. Teachers are tracking the percentage of TSA objectives covered, and the percentage of student mastery, with three school-wide data collection points looming. An aspect of UOI is how teachers collect data within their given unit, and teachers have extensively collaborated on how they will collect and utilize their information. The in-service provided time to marry the UOI with the new data collection process and give teachers a broad sense of how data relates to reflective practice.
This is a resource build by the ESSD40 staff for to aid in transforming teaching and learning.
Inspire. Empower. Challenge.
