Assessing Literacy Growth with the 4 M Framework

Monday, June 19, 2017 - 3:00 pm CDT

In this edWebinar, Instructional Coach at Lake Zurich Community Unit School District 95 Billy Spicer, will share Gravity Goldberg’s 4 M Framework from her Mindsets & Moves book. The framework offers a platform for you to truly model the adage “work smarter, not harder” regardless of how your students are interacting with text. Adopting this framework will assist you to take a step back in terms of driving instruction and instead, truly allow students to show what they are capable of, where they’re headed next, and how to collectively get there. Join us to learn how to:

  • Study your students with wonder and awe
  • Explore each of the 4 Ms and their purpose:
  • Miner: Uncovering students’ reading processes (focus: assessment)
  • Mirror: Giving feedback that reinforces a growth mindset (focus: feedback)
  • Model: Showing readers what we do (focus: demonstration)
  • Mentor: Guiding students to try new ways of reading (focus: guided practice and coaching)
  • Create spaces for student ownership
  • Apply Gravity Goldberg’s 4 M Framework when assessing your students’ level of engagement

Presented by Billy Spicer, Instructional Coach, Lake Zurich Community Unit School District 95 in Illinois. There will be time to ask Billy your questions after his presentation. All K-12 educators, administrators, and librarians are invited to attend this live, interactive event.
