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.

Routines and Procedures

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'.

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.

Collaborative Student Groups
Color Teams

Color Teams are teams that students form themselves within the rotation groups that I have created. Students usually work in their Color Teams when we conduct a group task. When students are working in their teams, I encourage them to use academic discourse and math vocabulary words. Given that students spend a significant amount of time working independently on digital content in my blended classroom, Color Teams are an important structure to foster productive group work among my students.

 
Assessment & Data
Multiple Sources of Data

Since we use a preselected curriculum for math, the majority of data is collected and analyzed using the highlighted resources. Being a blended learning school we know it's important to look at multiple sources of data and consider where our students are at at that time whether at the start, midpoint, or end of a unit. Using each assessment as a snapshot of where students are at in order to plan/prioritize for both online and offline instructional strategies/steps is my main focus. (See screencast for further information)

Mark's Mindsets

A blended teacher’s personal mindsets shape his decisions as an educator. These mindsets influence general pedagogies, instructional approaches, and short-term decision making, alike. Check out how Mark’s mindsets have helped to shape his blended instruction.
