We are teaching grade level standards but also trying to find the time to support struggling students who are below grade level in some key skills. How can we do both?
This is the question so many teachers ask themselves.
Lesson planning is complicated enough. It includes differentiation per unit for my grouped students, but my problems are a little bigger now.
I have all this data telling me specific skills my students need to work on. Unfortunately, they need to work on a wide variety of things, at different grade levels.
How can technology make that more feasible?
One way is by helping you make students’ assessment data actionable. Data has come a long way! You have reports that show you exactly what skills your students are great at, and the ones that need a little more work. Now what?
Instructional technology programs like Classworks automate the process of getting every student what they need to move forward. Especially those important skills they need that aren’t part of this year’s curriculum.
My students also have this individualized learning plan. I love that they are getting exactly what they need! But, where does that fit into our day?
During our professional development sessions this year, conferencing was a hot topic. When, how often, how long?
Webb Elementary achieved the most gains in their district during the 2014 - 2015 school year. A remarkable achievement for a school that was named an Alabama Focus School just one year prior! WES was also awarded the CLAS Banner School Award for growth in academic performance! Find out how.
