Leading Effective Weekly Data Meetings with Paul Bambrick-Santoyo
Schools across the country have been implementing data-driven instruction to improve student achievement in their schools. In that process, leaders and teachers have grappled with a few core questions:
- What do we do when students aren’t mastering the standard?
- How do I figure out the root cause of the error and how do I build a re-teaching plan that works?
Even when teacher teams come together to address these questions, they often struggle to be maximally effective. Leading Effective Weekly Data Meetings addresses these challenges directly by teaching:
- How to lead teacher teams in to maximize the effective analysis of student work
- How to identify the root cause of student error and select the re-teaching strategy that will close the gap
Over the course of the workshop, participants will watch videos of teacher teams who are some of the highest-achieving in the country. They will leave with all the tools, protocols and resources to replicate this success in their own school.
Facilitated by Paul Bambrick-Santoyo, author and Chief Schools Officer for High Schools and K-12 Development at Uncommon Schools, this one-day practice-based workshop will help you and your campus team learn how to implement weekly data meetings effectively to increase student achievement at your school.
Please bring a sample of student work from your classroom or (if a leader) from one of the teachers that you lead:
- Bring three pieces of student work from an exit ticket or weekly quiz for a standard that students are still struggling to master:
- One high-achieving student
- One medium-achieving student
- One struggling/low-achieving student
- (Alternatively, if an exit ticket doesn’t work, you can bring student work from a recent benchmark/interim assessment)
- Narrow the student work to just 1-3 questions that are all on the same standard:
- If a literacy question, bring the passage that they read
- Choose a question where you have student work that reveals their thinking (either an open-ended question or multiple choice questions with student work annotated alongside them)
Leaders will be able to:
- practice having a weekly data meeting which uses student interim/formative assessment data to identify instructional gaps
- review student exit tickets and identify the highest leverage misconceptions to address
- plan and practice remediation to address student misconceptions
*Each participant is eligible to receive 8 Continuing Professional Education (CPE) credits toward Texas educator requirements for their positive attendance and participation in the training. Please note that late arrivals or early departures by more than half an hour will count as an absence.
