Reflection: Quizzes Informational Text Structures Formative - Section 2: Independent Work


After looking at my data, I was pretty impressed with my students. The one that confused them the most was descriptive. It wasn't that they couldn't identify description; a few just still hang on to the idea that if it's describing ANYTHING, then it's description. They aren't seeing the key words that show us it's sequence or cause and effect. One student said that passage 5 is descriptive because it describes why we have to drink water. Those key words are so important. These same students also tried to turn in work without highlighting key words and ideas, so I still have some work to do on my expectations and that the little extra effort does pay off. It's still early in the year, so I know we'll make some growth. I'll be looking at their performance on the district summative in this area when I dissaggregate my data, and these kiddos will be assessed again during RTI so I can make sure they're getting this concept.
