Thank you to all for your collaboration in our work on refining our standards based student work bulletin boards. Making student work with feedback the centerpiece of instruction, reinforces students’ understanding of how to produce quality work, and how to demonstrate their mastery of standards. The ultimate goal is for students to take ownership of their work, revise it until it meets standards, and create motivation and celebration by having it posted in our classrooms and hallways.
The discussion today generated great suggestions on how to make this process even more powerful, and we will be providing the necessary materials and time to make this an ongoing process of sharing. Visiting each other’s classrooms to make connections across disciplines, and identify standards we can collaborate on, will help students and us make interdisciplinary connections.
INSTRUCTIONAL RESOURCE - ACHIEVE 3000
CHEC has received licenses for another on line resource that can support our interventions for students. Achieve 3000 delivers daily differentiated instruction for nonfiction reading and writing that are precisely tailored to each student’s Lexile® reading level, in English and in Spanish. Many CHEC staff members attended the introductory professional development that was offered this week. CHEC can have as many licenses for students as needed, so if you would like to use this reading program in your class, please contact Ms. Strickland.
