This slideshow will demonstrate a sample differentiated lesson based on data.
October 29, 2009
Insight One: From 2008-2009, there was a 27.0 gain in proficiency status.
Insight Two: In 2009, the number of advanced students decreased by 8.4 percentage points.
Insight Three: The number of basic students decreased in 2009 by 8.5 percentage points.
Based on the data, this is the measurable objective for improving instruction/increasing achievement:
By June 2010, 6th grade students at Bluford Drew Jemison MST Academy will :
-gain at least 5.5 percentage points in the proficient level
-gain at least 9.0 percentage points in the advanced level
-decrease at least 14.6 percentage points in the basic level
When you are done, go to the computer station to this website to help you build your graph.
My Circle Graph
Go to this website when you are done to create and check your numbers. Graphing
Advanced: Think about all of the things you do in a day.Set up a table to show the findings. Draw the circle graph with angles representing the number of degrees from the table. Use this video to refresh your graphing skills: How to make a circle graphThen create a graph at the website below to check your angles. Graphing
Students will be given an "exit ticket" – small pieces of paper designed to look like tickets, but with space for writing. I will ask students two questions. One that requires a factual answer about the big idea of today’s lesson, but in their own words. A second question would require more explanation of a concept. Basic students can also illustrate what they have learned.
Basic: Have each student complete a concept map and work with the teacher to explain any content that they did not understand.
Proficient: Have each student work with a partner to complete a concept map and share ideas/questions with one another about the content.
Advanced: Have each student complete a concept map to show what they have learned.
