1 Correlation Map of LEARNING-FOCUSED to Marzano s Evaluation Model

2 Correlation Map of LEARNING-FOCUSED to Marzano s Evaluation Model LEARNING-FOCUSED provides schools and districts with the best solutions for ensuring that teachers will be successful on teacher evaluations. LEARNING-FOCUSED is the only model that prepares your teachers to consistently and pervasively implement every domain and element of the Marzano evaluation. This correlation map provides the direct connections of day-to-day implementation of LEARNING-FOCUSED with the Marzano Evaluation Model by domain and design question. Design Question 1: Communicating Learning Goals and Feedback Transforming Standards into Learning Student Learning Maps are used with students. K-U-D Organizers Routine Segments Key Learning, Unit Essential Question, and Essential Questions Design Question 1: Concepts are presented at beginning of unit. Rubrics Communicating Learning Essential Questions and vocabulary are added as students progress through the unit. Goals and Feedback Assignments 1. Providing Clear Essential Questions are posted and used to start Learning Goals and lessons, referred to during lessons. learn Scales that the essential question represents the learning goal and will be answered at the end of the lesson. Essential Questions are referenced throughout the lesson. Connecting Extending Thinking Rubrics are provided for Extending Thinking assignments to clarify quality use of thinking strategies Planning Units for Learning are provided with rubrics for assignments and activities as they are introduced.

3 Transforming Standards into Learning Common Assessments Common Assessments are collaboratively Assessment Prompts Routine Segments planned and utilized throughout the unit of Collaborative Pairs Design Question 1: instruction Summarizing Strategies Communicating Learning Essential Questions Goals and Feedback Student Learning Map 2. Tracking Student Progress Assessment Prompts are planned for each lesson Vocabulary Strategies based on Essential Question and standards. Student Journals Acquisition Lesson (EATS) Assessment Prompts are distributed throughout the lesson in order to gather data on student understanding which allows teachers to adjust instruction to meet the needs of students at strategic points throughout lesson. Distributed summarizing and practice, often through collaborative student pairs, are used throughout the lesson between assessment prompts to continually check for understanding informally. A Summarizing Strategy is used at the end of the lesson to determine if students can answer the Essential Question. Routine Segments Design Question 1: Communicating Learning Goals and Feedback 3. Celebrating Success keep a journal of Student Learning Maps, Essential Questions, Assessment Prompts, Key Vocabulary and responses to Essential Questions. All LEARNING-FOCUSED Strategies Successful use of Collaborative Pairs in order to help individuals and peers acknowledge understanding and learning. Successful use of Collaborative Pairs during guided practice and distributed summarizing help students acknowledge and deepen their understanding of important knowledge and skills. Work (drafts and final products) is displayed in classrooms and hallways to acknowledge student understanding and learning. update their journals with evidence of their learning and constructive feedback is provided by teacher(s) and peer(s) (depending on age group). Teachers provide immediate feedback to students during Activating Strategies, Vocabulary Strategies, Assessment Prompts and Summarizing Strategies, that is informative and acknowledges individual and class learning.

4 Design Question 6: Establishing Rules and Procedures All LEARNING-FOCUSED Strategies Teachers model classroom expectations. Modeling Collaborative Pairs Routine Segments Design Question 6: are provided multiple opportunities to Establishing Rules and model classroom expectations that develop qualities of leadership. Procedures 4. Establishing Learning expectations are the focus of lessons, Classroom Routines not teaching expectations. Routine Segments Design Question 6: Establishing Rules and Procedures 5. Organizing the Physical Layout of the Classroom Collaborative Pairs are used to ensure that every student is actively engaged and following expectations. All LEARNING-FOCUSED Strategies are grouped in pairs and teams to facilitate cooperative/collaborative learning. Walls are used for Student Learning Maps, Word Walls, and student work. Posted Student Learning Maps and Essential Questions are displayed in a way that all students can easily read them. Teachers learn to organize classroom displays by content area in order to facilitate student use of learning displays.

5 Design Question 2: Helping Interact with New Transforming Standards into Learning Essential Questions Teachers begin units with Unit Essential Unit Launch Activity Question(s). Activating Strategies Design Question 2: Helping Vocabulary Strategies Interact with New Teachers begin units with a Launch Activity that previews the critical content (important ideas/key Identifying Key Vocabulary learning) to be learned in the unit. Acquisition Lesson (EATS) 1. Identifying Critical Information Teachers begin lessons with Lesson Essential Question. Activating Strategies are used at the beginning of lessons to inform students of what they are going to learn and prepare them and to link to students prior knowledge and identify what students already know about the topic. Vocabulary Strategies Teachers prioritize key vocabulary from the standards. Critical vocabulary is previewed as part of the Unit Launch Activity and Lesson Activating Strategies. Design Question 2: Helping Interact with New 2. Organizing to Interact with New learn to use research-based strategies to identify key vocabulary in text and preview meaning. All LEARNING-FOCUSED Strategies Extensive use of Collaborative Pairs and small groups during all parts of lessons and activities such as rehearsals, guided practice, distributed summarizing, Assessment Prompts, assignments and learning activities.. Use of graphic organizers to organize and store new knowledge. Assessment Prompt activities require students to refine their understanding of new information.

Activating Strategies Vocabulary Strategies 3. Previewing New Acquisition Lesson (EATS) Content Activating Strategies, Advance Organizers and Vocabulary Strategies are embedded in the LEARNING-FOCUSED Strategies Acquisition Lesson plan. Design Question 2: Helping Interact with New 4. Chunking Content into Digestible Bites Acceleration strategies are planned and implemented to preview and scaffold grade level learning to assist academically challenged students. Transforming Standards into Learning Student Learning Maps graphically chunk learning into key concepts. Assessment Prompts which chunk lessons into manageable learning segments are planned and distributed throughout the lesson and activities. Distributed Practice and Distributed Summarizing are key components of the Acquisition Lesson plan. Teachers attend to age-related attention spans in distributing practice and summarizing across a lesson. Writing Assignments use Writing to Inform and Writing to Learn activities to internalize and understand new learning. use Writing to Inform to demonstrate greater depths of understanding at strategic points during a lesson (Summary Point Writing). Reading Assignments use Reading Comprehension Strategies and graphic organizers to chunk reading passages and find meaning and purpose.

Reflecting on Learning Questioning Strategies Teachers use effective questioning to elicit deeper thinking about concepts and strategies in order to strengthen comprehension. Non-verbal representations such as graphic organizers are planned and used in every Acquisition Lesson. Teachers use Mnemonic Devices with students to help them learn concepts. Using Collaborative Pairs, Assessment Prompts, Summarizing Strategies, and Assignments, teachers provide students with direction to reflect on their learning. Assessment Prompts, Summarizing Strategies, Assignments, and Extending Thinking Activities require students to not only understand the content, but to be able to explain why, how, when, etc in order to be able to transfer that knowledge to times when students are acquiring new knowledge.
