Numeracy Nets Session

(Re)introduction to Numeracy Nets: Bridging the Gap Between Assessment & Instruction
Work within the Blackboard Collaborate online meeting room with increasing ease

To be able to answer the following:
  • What is a numeracy net?
  • How is a numeracy net structured?
  • How can numeracy nets be used:
  • as a diagnostic tool?
  • for planning and monitoring progress?
  • to build Individual Education/Student Support Plans?
  • with Professional Learning Communities?

Dig deeper into the numeracy nets to enhance student learning by:
  • Completing Step 1 of the Collaborative Planning Cycle (Page 17-18 in Numeracy Net binder). That is, identify the learning goal.
  • Completing Step 2 of the cycle. That is, prepare for the assessment.
  • Beginning Step 3 of the cycle. That is, begin to identify and clarify student needs.
Assigned at this event:
(Re)read the checkpoint elaboration in the Numeracy Net and relevant professional resources, in our case, Teaching Student-Centered Mathematics, for further insights for the checkpoints that your group selected.

Administer the sample assessment tasks as agreed by the team with your students.
Grades K-3 Group: Grades K-2 Checkpoints 1, 3, 5, 6, & 7
Grades 3-5 Group: Grade 3 Checkpoints 1, 3, 5, 6, & 7
Grades 6-9 Group: Grade 6 Checkpoints 1, 7, 8, 10, & 11

Analyze your student work samples and observations. (See p. 8, “How are assessment tasks marked?” Do #1-5 and we will collaboratively review 4, 5 and do 6 next time.) Identify what each student understands.
Please take notes on the observed understandings of each student by completing “OBSERVED UNDERSTANDING If Not Yet, what does child say, do, or write?” on the Overview Chart in the Appendix to inform the decisions that we make at the next Digging Deeper into Numeracy Nets session.
Please submit Whole-Class or Small-Group Readiness Sheet (Depending on your grade, Appendix C or Appendix D) for for the Checkpoints that were selected by your group as soon as soon as possible for as many of your students as possible. Obviously, the longer that I have to compile the data and prepare for the next session the better.

Numeracy Nets Session

Using The Baseline Data To Help Move Student Learning Forward
Use the online meeting room with increasing ease

Review the “Three-Part Format for Problem-Based Lessons” (About p. 16 - 21 of Teaching Student-Centered Mathematics)

Build a self-assessment table based on the checkpoints selected by the group at the last meeting

Continue to build up the summary data chart for our students

Dig deeper into Numeracy Nets to enhance student learning by:
  • Analysing the data and choosing one checkpoint to focus on as a group.
  • Completing Step 3 of the Collaborative Planning Cycle. That is, identify and clarify student needs.
  • Completing Step 4 of the cycle. That is, formulate and adopt a promising instructional plan to address each need.
  • Completing Step 5 of the cycle. That is, prepare to deliver the instructional plan in the classroom.
  • Be set to complete Step 6 of the cycle with your students.
Assigned prior to this event:
(Re)read the checkpoint elaboration in the Numeracy Net and relevant professional resources, in our case, Teaching Student-Centered Mathematics, for further insights for the checkpoints that your group selected.

The sooner that that the data comes in the better for my preparation.

The grades 6-9 group is doing Read Aloud and Unknown Number using the Three-Part Format for Problem-Based Lessons, pages 15-20 of Teaching Student-Centered Mathematics Grades 5-8 and resubmitting data on the chart, especially for Checkpoint 7, prior to the next session by fax or by e-mailing the spreadsheet. The sooner that the data comes in the better for my preparation.

There will be a chance to share an activity that you tried with respect to any of the checkpoints again next time.
