Assessment & Data

Using Multiple Sources of Data to Inform ELA Instruction & Grouping

As a blended school, sometimes there is an overwhelming amount of data. Knowing how to use it and when is critical in making sure that the data is both purposeful and useful. Included is both offline (DRA, RAZ, and Interim Benchmark assessments) and online (iReady) assessments to inform instruction and make groups (guided reading, computer groups, and skills-based groups).

This is a tool used to calculate student behavior on a 5 point scale in order to identify behavioral trends for each student. Students start the day with a score of 5 points, whereby each mis-behavioral infraction reduces the total by 1 point. Student averages are used to identify students in Tier 1, 2, and 3 for the RtI behavior model.

This document is used after an online diagnostic is given in order to analyze data and create actionable steps. Together with the blended learning coordinator, the data helps to inform trends in the classroom and creates next steps for the teacher in order to continue meeting the needs of students in their blended programs.

Real World Hook

One way we bring authenticity to our lessons is by making explicit connections or real world hooks to what we're learning. What I particularly enjoyed about our persuasive writing unit is that we were able to identify real problems in our own school community and to think of solutions. It then brought about real change in our school, and in this case brought about getting more magazines into the classroom which was an identified need of our class.

 
Collaborative Student Groups
Color Teams

Color Teams are teams that students form themselves within the rotation groups that I have created. Students usually work in their Color Teams when we conduct a group task. When students are working in their teams, I encourage them to use academic discourse and math vocabulary words. Given that students spend a significant amount of time working independently on digital content in my blended classroom, Color Teams are an important structure to foster productive group work among my students.

 
Routines and Procedures
Numbered Heads

Numbered heads is a practice we use to randomize and create an element of excitement at the beginning of lessons/investigations. Each student draws a random number from their team cups to start lessons once a week.
