Manaiakalani CoL Inquiry Panel

My Inquiry Journey .. Empowering students through talk to promote dialogic discussions and accelerated learning through the use multi-modal resources.
What happened for the learners; (Initial Target group)
  • Increased confidence, levels of engagement and participation
  • Varied levels of accelerated learning with others with the exception of 1 making and maintaining progress equating with expectations re time.
  • influenced motivation and depth of learning  transference of this to math problem solving and vocabulary development and use of.

What evidence to I have of that?
      Tui Talk Dialogic Discussion Emerging                                                                

                                                                                   Levels of 'talk were reduced when working on

Evidence - Transferring dialogue across to inquiry &
Student Evaluation

What did I do to make this happen?
  • Examined and critique my own practices
  • Focused Learning Intentions  - Talk as thinking on the outside!
  • .Co-construction of success criteria
  • Provision of prompt card questions or statements.  
  • Reduction of teacher involvement in guided reading.  **
  • Two to three readings of same text and resources that linked to each resource which included a multi-modal approach which promoted making connections across text and well as within text.
  • Constant feedback and feed forward.
  • Reading integration transferring knowledge, applying and extending learning

Wonderings about Where to next:  Focus on talk to continue; Cross curriculum integration;
Students: Self and Peer evaluation;
Teacher: Include strong oral language focus across all learning areas for 2018.
Who is doing the talking in your class?
