Facilitate and Encourage

Facilitate and Encourage Demo 1. Say: Today, we’re going to practice listening for small changes in sounds. Together, we’ll work on an exercise called Moon Ranch. I’ll get us started, and then I’d like for you to try. 2. Project the Moon Ranch Introduction (English or Spanish) demo. 3. Follow along with the demo, which explains how the exercise works. 4. Click the bubble: • Correct answer: the bubble pops and disappears • Incorrect answer: if the bubble is clicked too early or too late, a “thunk” sound effect plays, and the bubble remains on the screen. 5. Keyboard Shortcuts: • Go button = Space bar • Answer = Down arrow Direct students to log in and work individually on the Moon Ranch Demo for approximately 10 minutes. This time period mimics the timing of the exercise once it’s assigned. Debrief with students to ensure they understand the task and objective of the exercise. Ask: What did you notice? Have students share anything that they have questions about. Moon Ranch includes instructional audio for the exercise introduction and instructions. By default, these are presented in English. You can, however, select Spanish instructions for all, some, or individual students on the Manage page in mySciLEARN. 36 Moon Ranch Teacher Manual

Facilitate and Encourage Monitor Student Progress Review Moon Ranch reports regularly to monitor student progress. Use the data to determine which students are succeeding and which students might be struggling to make progress. Where to look... PROGRESS: Foundations I Exercise Progress - Moon Ranch The colored line shows student progress and their percent complete. Each dot indicates a day the student worked on the exercise. What to look for... what it means Is the line going up? The student is completing content accurately and making progress. Is the line flat across several dots? The student may be struggling and you need to find out why. Are there long lapses between dots? The student may be skipping this exercise. USAGE: Usage Details - Schedule Do you see half-filled gray circles? The student is working on this exercise, but not meeting the scheduled time. Make sure that they have time to complete their daily schedule. If fatigue is an issue, add some breaks to their schedule. Do you see red circles? The student is skipping this exercise. Provide support to help them re-engage. USAGE: Usage Details - Minutes/Questions Are many days highlighted in red? The student is not meeting their daily schedule. Check the Schedule tab in this report to investigate further. Is the student answering fewer questions than usual? They may be distracted or losing focus. In comparison to their previous activity, a low number of trials to minutes may indicate the student is not applying themselves to the task. Is the student answering more questions than usual? They may be rushing. In comparison to their previous activity, a high number of trials to minutes may indicate the student is trying to amass points, or to progress more quickly, but rushing can result in mistakes. Ask them to turn Autoplay off. Remind them that making progress depends on accuracy, not speed. Moon Ranch Teacher Manual 37
