Instructional Planning

Digital Content Connection

Digital Content Connection ensures that students, while engaged in online practice, work on targeted skills that will help them achieve their individual goals. Through various forms of data (Exit Tickets, formative/summative assessments, online learning programs, etc.), I identify the skills that each student needs to practice. I will often group my students into homogenous levels and assign them the same practice. Other times I assign my students individual lessons to meet their needs. Through this process, my students receive practice that is tailored to their needs, allowing them to master a skill before moving on to the next level of content.

Strategy Explanation
 
 
This document, created by Khan Academy, aligns Khan Academy lessons with RIT scores and Math Common Core State Standards. I use this resource to plan the assignment options given to students each week/day, selecting lessons that align with the standards or skills that my students need to practice.
Student Data
 
 
This page gives teachers data on how students are progressing in a particular domain (Numbers & Operations -- Fractions, in this case) on Khan Academy. Based on diagnostic data and ongoing practice, students are placed into levels that correspond to standards along the domain, sometimes on grade-level and sometimes not. Using this data, I can plan groups or individual assignments.

Assessment & Data
Mild, Medium & Spicy Groups

I group my students into three proficiency groups - Mild, Medium, and Spicy. This is a system of general differentiation that allows me to easily assign practice or even homework. Students know their level and know that the assigned practice is likely best for them. Their level is also assigned to them based on various factors, including benchmark assessments, formative assessments, and informal observations made in class on a daily basis. I encourage my students to challenge themselves to try a "spicier" level when they're ready. This gives students the flexibility to try harder material and excel at an appropriate and personalized pace.

 
Assessment & Data
Remedial Small Group

Remedial small group instruction is a strategy used to address the needs of students who are behind. In order to support students in mastering foundational skills, I pull small groups of students who all require practice with a same skill. We go through a mini-lesson, sometimes using added supports like technology or manipulatives, working to master the skill and allow the student to fully access content taught to the whole group. This strategy is really important for my blended classroom, as I can thus deliver personalized lessons based on the skillsets that students have. 

 
Academic Culture
Class Dojo for Behavior Management

ClassDojo is a free behavior tracking system. I use it everyday to give students feedback on how they're meeting academic and behavioral expectations. As students are given postiive points or "needs work" points, a sound beeps and the entire class hears and sees that a student is being given feedback. Just as with behavior narration, students become more aware about their personal behaviors, following the expectations as they see them reiterated through behavior points. Their scores carry through with them to each class, culminating in a report at the end of the day that goes home to the students' parents. This allows parents to stay in the loop with how students are working and behaving at school.
