DOING PROJECTS VS. LEARNING THROUGH PROJECTS!

01projectvpblgrey_0 (2) (1)

Hello Hurricanes,

As we continue on our “Rigorous” Journey to  create an environment in which each student is expected to learn at high levels, I ran across this short article that I wanted to share with you. 

The Difference Between Doing Projects Versus Learning Through Projects

by Terry Heick

We’ve clarified the difference between projects and project-based learning before. Projects are about the product, while project-based learning is about the process.  Projects are generally teacher-directed, universal, and tangent to the learning, while project-based learning is student-centered, personal, and the learning pathway itself. Put simply, it is an approach to learning rather than something to complete. Paul Curtis recently shared this excellent visual on twitter that takes a different approach to clarifying the difference, looking at it from the perspective of curriculum planning and instructional design. A non-PBL unit will see a linear series of often tightly scripted activities (whether lecture or not) that will ultimately culminate in a project. In PBL, there is constant checking, revising, feedback, and reflection on quality, research, literacy efforts, and quick assessment results.  Note that this is only one approach. It also could be argued that PBL isn’t linear at all except that it starts at some point, and then at another point later the class moves on. In that way, you might imagine a circle made of twisting arrows that reflect the iterative and recursive nature of authentic–and messy–project-based learning.

Our Coaching team and Ms. Trenholm will be supporting you with this “MindShift” in instructional practices!  We’re going slow to go fast, and I know you are up for the challenge!

THE VALUE OF AN ERASER!

tEAM

Hello Hurricanes.. We have completed another successful year at SSMS. I would like to “Thank You” for your hard work and dedication, which made it all possible. We are excited with the inception of our pilot blended instructional models for the 15-16 school year, which will allow teachers to differentiate and customize the learning experience for ALL students; our school-wide student interactive notebook implementation, which will provide an additional  tool  to assess and monitor authentic student work; and  as always, we will continue to move forward with our mission of increasing student achievement, enhancing our Leadership Model and empowering STUDENTS TO LEAD!

The 2014-2015 school year is now a memory, I ran across a blog entitled “Teaching in the Present Tense”. The article below was very inspiring.  I hope you enjoy it as well. 

https://twitter.com/Ahhdees/status/603738789295456256  

Looking forward to seeing many of you during the Summer PD planning days!

Have a Great Summer and SHARPEN THE SAW!

#BUILDING RELATIONSHIPS#SCHOOL SPIRIT#MAKING A DIFFERENCE#SSMS

IMG_1343SSMS Students and Faculty had such an entertaining time at the Faculty vs. Student basketball game! Our students are our future leaders, and building that bridge between student and teacher is essential. Synergy was in the air, student & teacher collectively, to promote awareness and collect can goods for a good cause.  SSMS students donated over 200 cans to the Care Cabin!  Great Game Hurricanes!!!  

A quote by Rita Pierson states, “We’re educators. We’re born to make a difference.”

  CLICK HERE to hear Rita’s TedTalk

The difference Pierson refers to is not only helping students learn, but being a positive force in their lives. In her TED Talk, she calls on teachers to build relationships with their students, no matter how challenging that may be. Pierson shares examples of gestures large and small to bolster students’ self-esteem, down to how she marked a quiz that a student had failed.

“Every child deserves a champion—an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection, and insists that they become the best that they can possibly be.”

“I gave [my students] a saying to say: ‘I am somebody. I was somebody when I came. I’ll be a better somebody when I leave. I am powerful, and I am strong. I deserve the education that I get here.”

Rita Pierson passed away in 2013, but her memory and philosophies continue to enhance educational practice.

CELEBRATING STUDENT SUCCESS!!!

IMG_6917

 Parent, Students & Teachers joined forces to Celebrate the Success of  our graduating 8th Grade class this morning.  The gym was standing room only! Recognizing and celebrating success let’s the students know that their accomplishments are noticed and valued.  It also reminds everyone involved of the bottom-line goal of enhanced motivation, which leads to increased student learning and achievement. Thank you to Ms. McLean & Ms. Strickland for spearheading this event, which will be a cherished memory for many of our students.

“BOTTOM LINE, OUR KIDS CAN…”

IMG_1326Hello Hurricanes!!!!!!

I wanted to take this opportunity to share with you a letter to the Math department, from one of our Leaders!  The letter encompasses the Celebration of Success, the Facts, the Analysis, the Action Plan to improve and the Goal for 2015-2016.  Our favorite line of this message is highlighted in red below:

” I’ve attached the final results for the Seminole County Math Festival for you all to look at. We did some wonderful things this year that I want to highlight below:

• We had an increase of student participation this year, fielding 6 full teams and two partial teams.
• Travis Xiang placed 6th out of the whole county in the individual round for Geometry Honors.
• Annabell Olay placed 6th out of the whole county in the individual round for 6th Grade Standard.
• Alex Snyder placed 1st out of the whole county in the individual round for 6th Grade Advanced.
• Kudos to Mr. Bradley who worked with Annabell and Alex to coach them up for the Math Competition!
• The 7th Grade Advanced team was only 3 points from placing in the overall team competition.
• The 7th Grade Advanced Gifted team placed 1st in the Engineering Round.
• At least one student from 50% of our teams received some form of recognition.
• SSMS placed 2nd overall in the poster competition and received our school’s first math festival trophy the since the 1990s.
• And last, but not least, thanks to to Ms. Firios for working as our school’s Math Festival liaison!

Bottom line, our kids can compete with the kids from other schools!

So where do we go from here? If you look at the scoring sheet for school trophies, you see that our school ranked in last place out of all schools with 36 points. Indian Trails, which finished in 11th place, finished with 64 points. The huge discrepancy is because we lacked representation from five teams whereas other schools did not. As a school, we need to score up with the other schools and we can do that with participation. Our kids started out the awards ceremony excited as their peers from SSMS were being called to collect an award. As time went on, and the Festival started calling out winners from teams that we lacked full or partial representation for, their demeanor started to change and they started to lose interest. We talked about having pride in our school at our last department meeting and our students at the competition definitely had that but I don’t want them to get down on themselves simply because we don’t have a team.  I’m letting you know now. Next year, we are going to field full teams in every single category. We can and will do this!!!”        ~Adam Kiefer

PASSPORT TO CIVICS!

IMG_1321

SSMS 7th grade Hurricanes are participating in our “Passport to Civics” review in preparation for their End of Course Exam. The Civics teachers and Dr. Scheiner worked collaboratively analyzing data and test item specifications to identify targeted areas before the exam. “Passport to Civics” involved students being actively engaged as they “traveled” through four color-coded learning centers, each one consisted of 5 zones or stations each. Each learning zone was aligned with a targeted benchmark. Students received a “stamp” upon completing each zone with proficiency, prior to traveling to the next benchmark. Through this process, students were provided the opportunity to work in peer teams, as well as independently apply Civics to real-world situations.

Way to STORM Team!

To ALL our Teachers/Staff Hurricanes:

The task of the excellent teacher is to stimulate “apparently ordinary” people to unusual effort.  The tough problem is not in identifying winners:  it is in making winners out of ordinary people.                                           ~K. Patricia Cross
