Revisiting Literacy and Numeracy Focused Individual Learning Plans (ILPs): Part 1 – Tweaking the Format


The_Thinker_Musee_Rodin

I’ve been revising my ideas for individual learning plans (ILPs) based on several things:

  1. The work I’ve done recently on the online version of our NCALNE (Voc) in Pathways Awarua which updates older templates that I had created; and
  2. The need to more closely align learning plans with the Learning Progressions for Adult Literacy and Numeracy; plus
  3. Some great ideas Damon Whitten has on learning plans which he’s talked about during training, but possibly hasn’t written up anywhere (Damon: If you have, let me know and I’ll link to it. If you haven’t… then you should!).

Here’s what I’m thinking currently for a format:

Individual Learning Plan

  • Name: Firstname Lastname
  • Tutor: Graeme Smith
  • Class or group: SMART
  • Date: 11 Aug 2015

Literacy Focus

  1. What specific literacy goal did you set for this learner? In other words, what do they want to achieve?
  2. Which specific literacy progression are you targeting. Just focus on one.
    • Vocabulary
    • Language & text
    • Comprehension
    • Listening critically
    • Interactive listening & speaking
    • Using strategies to communicate
    • Decoding
    • Reading critically
    • Purpose & audience
    • Spelling
    • Planning & composing
    • Revising & editing
  3. How will they know when they’ve achieved the goal? What’s the standard, in other words?
  4. What strategies are you going to use? In other words, how are they going to achieve the goal?
  5. What’s the timeframe for this? How will you monitor progress, in other words?
  6. What changes do they need to make in order to succeed?

Numeracy Focus

  1. What specific numeracy goal did you set for this learner? In other words, what do they want to achieve?
  2. Which specific literacy progression are you targeting. Just focus on one.
    • Additive strategies
    • Multiplicative strategies
    • Proportional reasoning
    • Number sequence
    • Place value
    • Number facts
    • Measurement
    • Location
    • Shapes & transformations
    • Preparing data for analysis
    • Analysing data for interpretation
    • Interpreting data
    • Probablility
  3. How will they know when they’ve achieved the goal? What’s the standard, in other words?
  4. What strategies are you going to use? In other words, how are they going to achieve the goal?
  5. What’s the timeframe for this? How will you monitor progress, in other words?
  6. What changes do they need to make in order to succeed?

I’ll turn this into a downloadable template as well and post it shortly. If this is useful, let me know in the comments.
