I’m curious to know what you think about the draft below. If we put this out in our classroom, will learners have a stronger opportunity to self-assess and level up?
I am grateful for all of the feedback we received. Thank you.
The teaching team that I am coaching asked an important question. “This works, Jill, for collaboration in our daily classroom learning. If we launch a team project, the Level 4 should really be the Level 3. How might we emphasize collaboration is co-creating something new together?”
If we establish I can collaborate to co-create evidence of shared learning, work, and understanding as a goal, how can we level up to focus learning?
We want all learners in this community to be able to say
I can collaborate to co-create evidence of
shared learning, work, and understanding
At Level 1, learners are working side-by-side and periodically check-in with each other. While closer to collaboration, this is really parallel play. We are in the same place doing the same thing, and we at least acknowledge that other learners exist in our space.
At Level 2, learners exchange thinking and ideas as they discuss questions and actions to take together. At this level, learners add to each other’s thinking and make sense of new, different ideas and pathways.
At Level 3, learners listen and share deeply to riff and improvise, co-creating ideas, thinking, and learning.
At Level 4, learners reflect on what they knew and what they know now. They can articulate what is now possible because of shared thinking, learning, and working together.
Again, I’m curious to know what you think about the draft above. If we put this out in our classroom, will learners have a stronger opportunity to self-assess and level up?
I love what we learn when we make our thinking visible. Our students and colleagues help us learn, refine, and deepen our work. Tell a colleague what you want next for and with your students. And don’t stop there. Teach. Help them learn even when you are learning too.
Brainstorm with colleagues. Talk about you hopes and dreams for students and level out what you see and want to see. Make your thinking visible to the learners in your care.
Lead learners to level up.
