Session 6: Practicing Developing MSDLAs

They will have 55 min to work on their MSDLAs. Remind them that this is the last time they will be given class time to complete this project and additional finishing touches will need to be done independently. 

LA 6.1 (10 min): Sharing My Learning and Professional Development The shower of ideas is about instructional conversation this week. Write down what they say as you go. 

LA 6.2 (40 min): Presentation on SEP—Instructional Conversation The group you met with last week presents Instructional Conversation to the class. It needs to answer the question: How can I use instructional conversation in my MSDLAs so all learners have access? 

LA 6.3 (50 min): Creating MSDLAs to Teach SIOP Principles  You need to assign students to small groups (of 2-3, depending on the size of the class) and each group should be assigned a chapter from SIOP—2, 3, 4 5, 6, 7, 8, or 9 (notice no one is assign chapter 1 it is the introduction). They have 50 minutes to create a center that will teach their chapter. The center will be enacted next week in LA 7.2 and needs to be no more than 12-14 minutes. They need to create a student task card for the center to be posted and arrange to bring materials needed to create a product at the center. Once they finish the center for next week, they move on to the MSDLAs to complete them. 

LA 6.4 (55 min) : Working on Your MSDLA Project Once they finish their center for next week’s center rotation on SIOP, they can work on completing all the paperwork needed for the major assignment, MSDLAs. Remind them that LA 1.4—Major Assignments—is where they can find all the forms needed to complete their MSDLA major assignment. They have 80 minutes to work on this and you should rotate students to answer questions and make suggestions. Remind them that they can access the parts of the assignment in LA 1.4--major projects. 

Homework Review (5 min) 

HW 6.1: Reflection on My Practice in Developing ELs’ Content and Language Proficiency This is the weekly reflection. Have them follow the instructions as they are in the homework activity. 

HW 6.2: Creating a Self Portrait Students need to think about their journey in becoming the teacher they are today in relationship to teaching ELs. They need to consider their identity as a teacher, their beliefs, dispositions, and practices and who they are as a teacher. They can use whatever media or materials to make this visual self-portrait. Bring this visual to class to share with others.  

HW 6.3: Build and Refine Your Final MSDLA Students are referred to the three videos they watched in last week’s homework about culturally responsive pedagogy to consider how them might improve their MSDLA assignment to include adjustment regarding that topic. They should make those adjustments wherever needed in their centers. They also need to review HW 7.3 now so they can schedule a time to try out the entire MSDLA if they can, if not then 2 or 3 centers so they can reflect on their work.
