Events - BEP Network Thursday, March 24, 2011, 2 p.m. EDT Click HERESign up here to receive an email reminder about this chat. Response to intervention involves early identification of students’ learning problems and the use of focused lessons, or interventions, to address those problems before they became entrenched. Though primarily linked with special education and early reading, the method is now used at all levels of schooling and in a variety of subject areas. Educators use “tiered intervention” models—of which RTI is one type—to improve school discipline. Guests:David Putnam Jr., Ph.D., director, Oregon Response to Intervention, Tigard-Tualatin School District Darren Woodruff, Ph.D., co-director, National Center on Response to Intervention Kathryn Tackett, Ph.D., coordinator of state technical assistance, National Center on Response to Intervention Nirvi Shah, staff writer, Education Week, will moderate this chat.

The Next Generation of LifelongLearningTeachers: CLIL lesson - History This is a CLIL activity I made up on my own for one of my classes. It's simple, funny, and easy to customize for different subjects (I will post a Geography version later on). It turned out to be motivating and successful, so I would rank it second in my CLIL experience, just after Dante's CLIL. Note: this lesson-plan fits any situation when you want to revise a range of topics you've already studied with your pupils. As for us, we had been studying the fall of the Roman Empire, dealing with different populations: the Romans, the Huns, the Byzantines and the Lombards (Langobards). about 20 students - 12/13 years old subjects: History/Languages Pupils working in teams (4 teams, since we had studied 4 different populations) About 2 hours needed Instructions given in English - pupils can answer and discuss, when needed, both in English and in mother tongue. Materials: - for the first part (role play) 20 pieces of paper with one sentence each (English) Steps: 2) Are you in your groups?

CLIL videos Why should CLIL teachers support learners to work actively with the input provided? Firstly, if learners are actively involved in thinking about the content and/or the language, they will reach a better understanding of both. If they re-organise or change input into another form, learners will process and comprehend input better. Tasks for guiding understanding might include, for example, changing information from a diagram into a text, or from a text into a picture or role-play. Secondly, if learners are helped to ‘scaffold’ their learning to understand the main points of lesson input, they will be understood better. Video In this clip, the teacher guides the learners to work actively with the input.

KEY PRINCIPLES - CLIL principles CLIL principals consist of three main blocks: - the 4Cs: Content, Communication, Culture and Cognition - Bloom’s taxonomy - Cummin’s Quadrant In 1956, Benjamin Bloom headed a group of educational psychologists who developed a classification of levels of intellectual behaviour important in learning. During the 1990s a new group of cognitive psychologists, lead by Lorin Anderson (a former student of Bloom’s), updated the taxonomy reflecting relevance to 21st century work. Creating Evaluating Analyzing Applying Understanding Remembering Remembering, understanding and applying are LOTS. When teaching we have to combine HOTS and LOTS activities in order not to tire our students but be careful! My advice is to start from the bottom and climb up the levels step by step but keep going backwards by climbing. Cummins’ quadrant is a useful tool for designing content lessons. Cummins advices us to start with a task that is cognitively simple and context-embedded. THE 4 Cs: CLIL principles in action
