Face to face in Harrisburg April 2019

Discussed implementation with Patty in Harrisburg during face to face training.

Following the Cue, Do, Review and preparing a script prior to implementation was helpful.  Given that the like and unlike characteristics were limited in number, the subsequent like and unlike categories were very similar to the characteristics.  However, this could be a good way to start the Concept Comparison Routine with naive learners.  That is, keeping it simple in the beginning could be beneficial for students who might be otherwise overwhelmed with a lot of information.  
If I were to do this again, I might consider an organizer that would allow for the comparison of three concepts in order to include equilateral triangles.

Due to my IU's email change, I lost my badge and work. I did earn my badge for this. Attached is my email saying that I earned it.

Implementation Reflection

The co-construction that is portrayed in the video was well received by both the teacher and students. Though this was not my own class (as I am no longer in the classroom as a teacher at this point), but I previously worked with this class to co-construct a unit organizer. Because the students had at least seen me in their classroom before, they were somewhat comfortable with working with me. The students were attentive during the co-construction, but I did have to provide some guiding questions along the way to get them to provide responses. Though the time period for this co-construction took longer than I intended (or is recommended), it appeared as if the students found this activity worthwhile as they referenced it later in the class period as they were completing practice/review work on the concepts.

I believe if I worked with these students more frequently or these students were a part of my own class, they would be more familiar with the routine and working with me so the process would have moved quicker, thus reduced the amount of time for the co-construction.

Concept Comparison Routine log

Concept Comparison Routine log: The routine and Comparison table were used during a Proffessional Development session that was only a class period long, 11:38 - 12:20 on 4/12/19. There were only three teachers in attendance for this session. The participation from the group went well despite man...

This was a useful tool to use. Students found it helpful to compare the formulas for area and perimeter before applying them.

Here is the evidence

Looking at the concept comparison organizer and routine, we were thinking of so many topics that we could use with this.  A lot of the social studies and science topics have many details that can be confusing, such as the simple machines, or ancient civilizations.  This would surely be a tool to help break it down and summarize the similarities and differences with them. We really like your suggestion to have this organizer partly filled out.  This would be very helpful for the students who write slower, and would allow us to use the purpose of this and not get hung up on the writing aspect. For our next one, I can see us giving the partly filled out organizer, and for some of the students giving them a neat copy would also be beneficial.  One thing that was tricky for us, was that the boxes were pretty small and third graders don’t always write small. I can also see us blowing the boxes up a little bit to give them more space, especially for the summary. We look forward to doing these in the future.

I can see how useful at tool this could be.

I created a Comparison Table to examine the overall concept of progress monitoring.  The individual concepts compared are progress monitoring in general education and progress monitoring in special education.

The co-construction of this concept comparison routine went fairly smoothly.  The lesson script in the guidebook was extremely helpful.  My colleague was able to visualize how she would be able to use this routine in her work.  The most difficult step of the routine was assembling like categories.  This step needed more discussion and explanation to help formulate the categories to which the characteristics belong.

Reflection

Question about the like and unlike characteristics/categories.  Based on your feedback do they have to have 1 to 1 correspondence?

Reflection

I really felt these lessons with the Concept Comparison Routines went well.  The students really enjoyed using these and we kept them in our folders as reference if our students needed them for classwork, quizzes, or tests.  I felt that these routines helped to pull concepts together in my Math 7 class.
