Learning Targets A GPS can't take you anywhere without a precise description of where

Learning Targets A GPS can't take you anywhere without a precise description of where you want to go. “Think of shared learning targets in the same way. They convey to students the destination for the lesson—what to learn, how deeply to learn it, and exactly how to demonstrate their new learning. In our estimation (Moss & Brookhart, 2009) and that of others (Seidle, Rimmele, & Prenzel, 2005; Stiggins, Arter, Chappuis, & Chappuis, 2009), the intention for the lesson is one of the most important things students should learn. Without a precise description of where they are headed, too many students are "flying blind. ” Knowing Your Learning Target ~Connie M. Moss, Susan M. Brookhart and Beverly A. Long

John Hattie is the Professor of Education at Auckland University in New Zealand. Through thousands of studies, he developed a way of ranking various influences in different metaanalyses according to their effect sizes. In his ground-breaking study “Visible Learning” he ranked those influences which are related to learning outcomes from very positive effects to very negative effects on student achievement. Hattie reports that an effect size of 1. 0 is equivalent to advancing a student by two to three years, so an effect size of. 57 improves learning by one to two years over the period of one school year.

Brain Breaks are short, energizing bursts of activity that boost blood flow, send oxygen

Brain Breaks are short, energizing bursts of activity that boost blood flow, send oxygen to the brain, and help students better retain information. They also help to regulate students and to take them to the higher parts of the brain, which reduces behavioral issues. Research has shown that Brain Breaks increase students’ on-task behavior AND the amount of physical activity they get every day. Dr. Bruce Perry’s Trauma Academy recommends rhythmic, patterned, repetitive movements to help calm students and to help take them out of fight or flight mode.
