It’s time for another on-air coaching session! My guest on this episode is Vicki Huepel, a high school science teacher from Montana, and member of the Shake Up Learning community, who is trying to create meaningful collaboration in the classroom. Listen in and we breakdown an entire lesson to see where it can be elevated and updated. 

Vicki has put together a lesson in which her students complete a variety of tasks dedicated to researching and explaining the digestive system. In the past, she has mostly lectured the students and then they would complete labs. She shares the changes she has already made to the lesson and then the coaching begins.

Putting yourself in the hot seat of on-air coaching takes courage and Vicki did an amazing job, I ask her to dig deeper into her lesson as well as her overall teaching style to find the ways in which this one lesson can be elevated. The best part is hearing her realize that the steps we take in this episode are applicable to the classroom as a whole. Don’t miss out on this fantastic deep dive into assessment, collaboration, and using tech to uplevel your lessons.

About Myron Dueck

Over the past 22 years, Myron has gained teaching and administrative experience in both Canada and New Zealand in subjects ranging from grades 4 to 12.  Beginning in 2006, Myron developed a number of grading, assessment and reporting systems with his classes in which students have greater opportunity to show what they understand, adapt to the feedback they receive and play a significant role in the reporting of that learning.  Myron has been a part of administrative teams, district groups, school committees and governmental bodies that have further broadened his access to innovative ideas.  Myron has shared his stories, tools and first-hand experiences with public, charter and international school educators around the world, and recently his presentations have diverged to include global education trends and broader socio-economic realities that impact learning. Myron has twice been published in EL Magazine. His best-selling book, Grading Smarter, Not Harder– Assessment Strategies that Motivate Kids and Help Them Learn was released by ASCD in July 2014 and in 2015 ASCD released a video project based in his own school district entitled ‘Smarter Assessment in the Secondary Classroom’. In 2019, ASCD released the first of a three-part online streaming series, hosted by Myron, looking at how we include students in assessment. The series includes John Hattie, Lorin Anderson, Celeste Kidd and more. 

Myron lives in Summerland, BC, CANADA with his wife and two children and is Vice-Principal for Communicating Student Learning in his local school district – Okangan-Skaha 67.

In Part 2 of this 2-part series, I dive into how to train your students to follow your plan, as well as how to deal with parents when their student misbehaves.

Dr. Grayson Maas is the Director of Communications for the Art of Problem Solving, a unique solution to teaching math anytime, anywhere.

  • Motivated students in grades 2–12.
  • We are the place students come to to learn math that they aren’t going to learn in school.
  • Instill motivation in kids to want to do math.
  • By and large math is traditionally taught with an emphasis on procedures, memorizing, and pattern matching.
  • We are losing the art and beauty of mathematics by how we teach math in schools.
  • We challenge them and ask them to rise to the occasion.
  • We give them puzzles.
  • We get a flood of serotonin when we solve problems.
  • It’s not wrong to have the wrote, it’s wrong if that’s all you have.
  • If you don’t move beyond the basics, you won’t be able to apply it later.
  • If you take a problem-solving approach…
  • We need to carve out time for kids to be uncomfortable with a problem.
  • But how do we make time for that?
  • It limits the incentive for kids to take intellectual risks.
  • We can do this together. Education doesn’t just have to be teachers in a classroom alone.
  • There’s a dissatisfaction because there is still a lingering question about how I would have done that.
  • Rigorous activities early on!
