Begin to collect evidence and data and come to the next session ready to share your preliminary findings about the nature and extent of the student challenge i.e. using your baseline student data and evidence.
I have collected evidence on the individual students on my class - blog post here.
I have collected historical data of Year 13 students doing NCEA Level 3 Design and Visual Communication - blog post here
Also, as part of my personal goals this year, I am looking at mindset as a barrier to learning - blog post about my goals here
As part of this, I have been lucky to have received input from Pippa Lawler from Mint Education. She gave me a growth mindset model questionnaire to do with students to see where their thinking is now and where it is later when I have done some work with them about this.
I gave these questions to my students today. Here are the results.
Key competency - THINKING SKILLS
Key Competency - RELATING TO OTHERS
Key Competency - UNDERSTANDING LANGUAGE, SYMBOLS AND TEXT
Key Competency - SELF-ORGANISATION AND MANAGEMENT
