Implementation Portfolio

I have used the Concept Mastery Routine for a number of years in a variety of settings.  As a special education teacher, I used  Concept Mastery in co-taught classes for math  and biology.  The class size was typically between 15 and 20 students with approximately one-third of the students receiving special education services.

In my current position as a project coordinator for the Training and Technical Assistance Center (TTAC) at RU, I work with administrators and teachers to provide professional development and support to assist schools in addressing accountability and improvement goals for students with disabilities. I have used the Concept Mastery Routine for several professional development sessions to help teachers review and explore a number of different topics.  The group size typically ranges from 15 to 40 participants. 

I also work as adjunct faculty at Radford University and I used Concept Mastery with a class I taught this past fall. The class had fourteen students and they are enrolled in the education program at RU. The students used the diagrams to review the topic of intellectual disability and it also served as a review tool for a test they were taking on this topic.  Samples of their completed concept diagrams can be found in a link below as well as my co-constructed concept diagram.

Implemented with 8th grade Special Education Pre-Algebra students

This particular concept diagram was implemented with 8th grade Special Education/ regular students for a Pre-Algebra review. The group of students was a small group review of 4 students. The levels of the students ranged from proficient to still needing assistance to grasp the content. Two of the students were special education in Math and two were not. This concept diagram review took one bell of 45 minutes.

This was a subgroup of my larger class

This was a group of 6 students that were pulled from my co-taught 8th grade general math class. Two of the students were students with learning disabilities, 3 were average and 1 was low average. This was a one day lesson that was a review for the test.  Artifacts are included in the video

Portfolio information

We co-teach 5 sections of Earth Science - mostly 9th grade students.  Class sizes are small - our largest class is 21 students - with a ratio of Special Education students to General Education student at around 30%.  There are also ELL students in 3 of our 5 co-taught classes.

We have been using the Concept Mastery Routine for 5 months in our classroom.  Our greatest success with this diagram has been with concepts which have finite numbers of characteristics, and definite definitions.

I used the concept mastery routine with our organizations coaching community of practice.  We wanted to discuss what coaching is and develop a definition.  We have 8 members in the coaching community of practice, 10 people total including Mary Stowe my coach and myself. We used the concept diagram once during our one hour meeting.  We post the co-created definition during our subsequent meetings.
