Humans need rituals, patterns, stability, predictability, sustainability, and community. How do teachers create this for students? How do teachers manage distance learning effectively? Scott Le Duc highlights his process. Come check it out and add it to the conversation.
Contribute to the Pre-session and TPEP Survey
- Take the Presentation / Session TPEP Prioritization Agenda Survey
- This is a standards-based presentation/session
- Gathering data from students/teachers can help you prioritize the most engaging content
- Scott placed the TPEP standards which are based on the Danielson Model in a Google Form
- What would you like to learn from this session?
- What domains and components (Standards) would you like highlighted through this session?
- Data gathering is essential for tracking growth, help Scott differentiate the experience to your needs
Review Participant Data To Set Session Goals
- Review the spreadsheet of data (Link is only for Scott to use live)
- Watch Scott’s Session Goal Setting with Data YouTube Tutorial
Top TPEP Requested Component…
- #1 is… 3c Engaging Student Learners (Danielson description PDF), example student behaviors below:
- Students take the initiative to improve the lesson by (1) modifying a learning task to make it more meaningful or relevant to their needs, (2) suggesting modifications to the grouping patterns used, and/or (3) suggesting modifications or additions to the materials being used.
- Students have an opportunity for reflection and closure on the lesson to consolidate their understanding.
- Students are asked to write an essay in the style of Hemmingway and to describe which aspects of his style they have incorporated.
- Students determine which of several tools—e.g., a protractor, spreadsheet, or graphing calculator—would be most suitable to solve a math problem.
- A student asks whether they might remain in their small groups to complete another section of the activity, rather than work independently.
- Students identify or create their own learning materials.
- Students summarize their learning from the lesson.
Post to Our Session Parking Lot
- A Padlet parking lot is a great place for students/teachers to post ideas asynchronously

Play Bingo – sort of…
- SIMPLE TPEP Bingo Card – Danielson (above) (PDF)
- DETAILED TPEP Bingo Card – Danielson (has the State 8) (PDF)
- Playing bingo with standards is a great way to activate the gaming mentality in students/teachers – get them looking, searching in your curriculum – doing is learning!

Contemplate Scott’s Presentation Goal
Designed with Andragogy for the ADULT Mind
- Need to know: Adults need to know the reason for learning something.
- Foundation: Experience (including error) provides the basis for learning activities.
- Self-concept: Adults need to be responsible for their decisions on education; involvement in the planning and evaluation of their instruction.
- Readiness: Adults are most interested in learning subjects having immediate relevance to their work and/or personal lives.
- Orientation: Adult learning is problem-centered rather than content-oriented.
- Motivation: Adults respond better to internal versus external motivators.
Remember, Andragogy can be for Young ADULT Mind’s, too!
Infused with Bloom’s Taxonomy Verbs
- For a more detailed description of Bloom’s Taxonomy examine the Model Questions and Key Words PDF
- Examine 126 Bloom’s Taxonomy Verbs For Digital Learning
- Scott’s Rubric Builder (help Students Build Rubrics with Bloom’s Verbs)
- REDO – No evidence of standard
- LIST the stages and procedures used in the recording process. APPROACHING STANDARD
- DESCRIBE the stages and procedures used in the recording process. MEETS STANDARD
- DEMONSTRATE the stages and procedures used in the recording process. EXCEEDS STANDARD
Example of a Bloom verbs-based rubric where the ‘standard verb’ was ‘describe’ with the lower level verb was ‘list’ and higher level verb was ‘demonstrate’
