Todays Agenda
  • Describe Project GLAD and how it works
  • Report Year 1 results from our experimental study
  • Take a closer look at what our findings mean for
    closing the achievement gap
  • Share some reflections about how professional
    development might have a bigger impact

Reflections
  • Content of the PD
  • Factors affecting implementation

43
Content of the PDDoes it prepare teachers to
make a difference?
Yes No
Multiple representations of concepts
Structured interactions with academic focus
Use of primary language
Focus on academically useful words
Powerful science instruction

Powerful science instruction
  • Inquiry-based
  • Evidence
  • Collect
  • Interpret
  • Communicate
  • Scaffolding FOSS kits

47
  • What about implementation?

  • Teachers also told us what made it hard to
    implement.

55
Lack of time
  • Story mapthis takes too much time to develop and
    implement. This is something to do in the summer.
  • Mostly I havent used some of the strategies as a
    matter of time. Social studies is only 30
    minutes.

56
Lack of materials
  • I was worried about the home school connections
    because I sent things home and I thought about
    the paper I would have to use. We have a copy
    limit per month.

57
Lack of confidence in using the strategy
  • Dont feel competent as yet to do certain
    strategies like Team Tasks that are linked to
    other strategies. Same is true with Group Frame,
    ELD Review and the Process Grid and Mind Map. Im
    not experienced enough to do the reading
    strategies either.

58
Collaboration may support Project GLAD
implementation
  • collaboration changed how I implemented the
    strategies and how often I did them. The other
    person gave me an incentive to do things more
    often and if she hadn't been there I would have
    done far less.

59
  • What else might help?
