  28. Student Portraits, Resumes, etc. • The more you know your students’ cultural backgrounds, home environments, and formative experiences, the more effective your standards-based instruction will be. • Make it a CAN DO/ASSET-Based portrait of the student! • Ownership… What are we going to do about this? • Has to be updated as things change!

  29. Portraits/Resumes • What do you want to know about the student? Help them to build the format. • Students build their own, set goals and targets based on their ACCESS scores, monitor selves, share with parents, conduct self-directed conferences.

  30. A Levels Metaphor

  31. Now You Try It! • Discuss information on the Teacher Reports from the Spring ACCESS tests. • Place each student’s name accordingly on the Can Dos ELL Student Charts by their Proficiency Levels. • Discuss with a friend how the Can Dos will help the teacher differentiate for these students.
