Stage 2: Assessment Evidence Assessment What will students do or produce to illustrate their learning? How will you assess what they do or produce? Performance Task(s): Students will have the opportunity to take risks within storytelling and writing skill areas. Through a differentiated approach students of varying abilities and grade levels will be able to respond to picture and written prompts in an open forum. Students, parents and staff will be able to choose a voice, text or video response to a visual prompt. Creations and products will vary. Other Evidence: There will be a great deal of informal evidence collected through an archive of products. Feedback from students, families and the community will be an excellent measure of the success of this process. Stage 3: Learning Plan

6 Overview This is a short summary of the lesson or unit including assignments or possible products. As a school we are working to implement a plan to not only improve the writing skills of our students, but more so to create an environment and culture of writing within our school. One of the things that we had implemented this past year was to put a picture prompt into our weekly Family Newsletter. Students would then respond in writing and would have the opportunity to be published in the next edition. This worked well and students were very excited about the opportunity. The problem was that not all students could access this, whether it be because of grade level or available support. The proposed idea here would be to utilize voice thread programming to present picture prompts in a much better format, individualized to grade level and allow for a broader sharing opportunity. Kindergarten students would be able to respond to visual text orally or through text. First and second grade students would be able to respond using either method as well. Third and fourth graders would respond with text. Use of this would allow us to share students work in an exciting, visual and audio realm. This would be a year long, whole school pursuit. Resources What resources will you use in your project (e.g., digital tools, web pages, print resources, etc.)? We will be using many different resources, several of which may develop along the way. Voicethread.com and flickr.com will be our launching programs. Voicethread will be our primary platform, while flickr will initially be our source of images for our prompts. Eventually, the hope would be that through this introduction, students and staff would learn to use voicethread and flickr, eventually creating their own postings. Preparation What student needs, interests, and prior learning provide a foundation for this lesson? How can you find out if students have this foundation? What difficulties might students have? The largest learning curve with this will be the accessibility question. Ideally, we would sign up for the Pro version of voicethread.com that would allow us to create an account for each family in our school. In the fall we would send a letter home explaining what we are attempting to do, how to access it from home or at school and include a predetermined password and ID; that way families wouldn t need to spend time figuring that out. The students, dependent upon grade level and exposure, will have varying foundational skills. The best way to approach these considerations will be through modeling at school and good old trial and error. Management How and where will your students work (classroom, lab, groups, etc.)? Students will largely access this opportunity on their own time, whether that be at school or home. Students in our school will have opportunities during lunch and recess next year to practice different approaches to writing; this might be a time for younger students to access voicethread.com with the help of school staff and microphone equipment. Students might have the opportunity to respond to a prompt during choice times in the classroom or perhaps responding could become a part of the classroom routine.

7 Outline and Timeline for Instruction and Activities List the learning activities you will use and provide a timeline that indicates what students must complete and by when. Summer 2008 Establish voicethread.com membership and account information August Letters sent home to families explaining process, how to log on and respond. Share same information with staff and school board. School year Ongoing development of student work and responses Instructional Strategies Describe how you will use any of the strategies listed below in your unit. Project-Based Learning: Differentiated Instruction: Providing nearly endless ways in which students can respond to a prompt will allow for broad and easy differentiation as we look at this whole school. Inquiry-Based Learning: Constructivism: This is a very constructivist approach to writing, allowing freedom, self monitoring and motivation and celebrating learning. Learning Centers: Collaborative Groups: We will support students in this process through our lunch writing groups. Groups might develop through the process due to interest or content. Other: Closure and Reflection How will you wrap up the unit? How will students reflect upon their work? This isn t a traditional unit in the sense that it would not have a clear ending point. This would be a continuous entity that would hopefully continue to grow and change, but never stop. Showcasing student work over time might be the single largest challenge with this, simply because of the logistics involved; however, having a lot of student work to figure out how to showcase would be a wonderful dilemma.
