Unit Organizer Log

What went well - Why?
- I felt the lesson flowed well because the tool was easy to use. What was a challenge - Why?
- Creating a draft of the organizer was a challenge (it took numerous revisions) because it forced me to analyze and summarize the content. What you will do next time? 
-It would be nice to use this device with content from a student curriculum (I used content from a professional development session).

What went well 
The Unit Organizer was a good tool for teaching and learning about Zoom. The Unit Organizer helped the student understand, not only how to organize information for her students, but to understand new content for herself. 

What was a challenge
A challenge was that both the student and I were not used to teaching and learning online. The Unit Organizer is easier to use, in my opinion, when you can write on it directly instead of having to type in smaller boxes in live time while teaching. 



What you will do next time •
Next time, I would like to teach this in person so I can both see and hear her and also see what she is writing at the same time. 



What adjustments you made
The adjustments I made were screen sharing with Zoom. Although I would like to be able to see her, it was more important for her to see where I was writing the content. Next time, I would also have her share her screen so I could check her content as well.

I am feeling like it is hard to identify the ways as consultants use these, but we are identifying them as useful for during series training.

The Unit Organizer

The Unit Organizer is not something I would use on a routine basis because as a consultant I usually only have participants for one session.  I do see the value of teachers utilizing it on a consistent basis for organization of information and student engagement.

UO Log

Unit Organizer LogThe Unit Organizer is a great tool to help plan “Year 2 P2G Implementation”.  Taking on a second school can feel overwhelming, but utilizing the UO may help us, and also the new LEA, to see the big picture and ensure all team players feel at ease with the new initiative.    

One challenge we encountered was that we have not yet started to use this routinely because we have not selected our year 2 school yet. Regardless, we will still plan to use the same time frame and can add specifics/additional questions and make adjustments once we are officially working with them.    

Practicing using this tool in our own research and planning has made us feel more comfortable and confident with it, and we’re looking forward to using it with students during the 19-20 school year.

What went well - Why?
By using the Unit Organizer, students were able to visually see what they would be learning about during a unit.  They seemed to like having an advanced understanding of the content they would be covering for the unit. 

What was a challenge - Why?
When I was a high school teacher, a challenge was having students keep up with their Unit Organizers.  We would often revisit the Unit Organizer questions and I found some students often lost it. 

What adjustments you made
An adjustment I made as a classroom teacher was to make sure I hole punched the Unit Organizer and had the students place it in their binders so that it could be easily found and not lost.

Implementation Log

The unit organizer is easy to facilitate at teachers like the big picture.  What I find the most difficult is the transitions.  We have a hard time coming up with the best language to "form a sentence" on the fly.  I am thinking I might have a bit of a "word bank" to help facilitate the responses.

The Unit Organizer tied the foundational knowledge about learning to read to the assessment tools that the district is using.

The Unit Organizer introduction provided a nice way to bridge the information from multiple training opportunities I have had with this group of special education teachers.  Previously teachers had been trained in LETRS on how the brain learns to read, phonology and phonics. The DIBELS measures assess these components and the complete organizer gave an at a glance of the big buckets of skills that we need to assess and respond to.  The organizer gave them big ideas to discuss as we made our way through modeling and practicing scoring the measures.  It helped us to not get lost in the details of the scoring rules etc. and keep our eye on the purpose of the assessment. 

They did have trouble generating the self-test questions about the organizer.  I think this was because they weren't planning to necessarily revisit the content, nor were they expected to take a test. For students, I think this would be easier if a unit test was upcoming.

During the video recording it went very well that we had our organizational routine completely mapped out.  It was really nice to be able to see the complete scope and sequence and illustrate that with both a map and words.  This allows the team to see the complete overview more clearly. 

It was a challenge to keep the conversation moving at times and at times there were uncomfortable pauses. I did realize that I did not specifically illustrate and state to the team how the items connect to the overall big idea.  

Next time we do this we will just have to write this into the script to more clearly parallel how the the items connect to the overall big idea of P2G.  I think that another item is just to become more comfortable with pauses that they are a normal part of what we are doing and happen in many situations.
