Blended Learning Time-Keepers

This strategy is called Blended Learning Timekeeper. The BL Timekeeper circulates and focuses on looking for students who are moving with urgency and purpose. This strategy emphasizes focus and motivation. Since we implemented this strategy in our class, the students are logging on faster, as they want to be an 'urgency all-star'.

Strategy Explanation
 
 
The Timekeeper sets the timer for one minute. The teacher or timer lets the class know when the timer is starting and he/she walks around to record who has urgency for that session by recording their initials. If a student needs a reminder to move faster, the timekeeper will come over and remind them to log in now, or ask if they need help.
Student Handout
 
 
This is a tracking page used by our class BL Timekeepers as students log on. The Timekeeper uses the page to note and write down the initials of our students with the most urgency or students who need more urgency. Using this information, I am able to asses who may need a reminder to use their time effectively.

Student Scouts/Narrators

I ask Student Scouts to identify peers who demonstrate the three class standards/rules (showing respect, solving problems, and making good decisions) to reinforce the idea that good behavior is rewarded both intrinsically and extrinsically. Student Scouts identify their peers who are showing these standards at various pausing points throughout the lesson and give out Literacy Awards. Pausing points are planned purposefully and serve as opportunities for students to practice monitoring and assessing their own behavior.

 
Assessment & Data
Mark's Use of Assessments and Data

Assessment and data play a crucial role in a blended teacher’s classroom. Blended learning gives teachers an opportunity to assess consistently throughout a class period, in a way that drives instruction, impacts grouping, and assignments. Blended educators have to develop capacity to sift through multiple sources of data and synthesizes quickly into action. Check out how Mark utilizes Assessment and Data here.

 
Collaborative Student Groups
Buddy Reading

Buddy Reading is a research-based fluency strategy I use with readers who lack fluency. In this strategy, my students read aloud to each other. More fluent readers can be paired with less fluent readers, or students who read at the same level can be paired to together. Buddy Reading can be used with any book since students can take turns reading by sentence, paragraph, page, or chapter.
