What we are already doing
What we are already doing: test

  • Math learning stations in 4th grade

  • Centers in grades K-2

    Learning Station and Center activities can be leveled using Bloom’s Taxonomy as a basis for activity selection

  • Math options in Middle School

  • Small group activities in SS in Middle School

Where we are going
Where we are going: test

  • Staff development- December 5th

  • Initial focus on Math and Language Arts in the Elementary grades, and a focus in each subject area in the Middle School

The tough road ahead
The tough road ahead: test

  • Added assessment development/analysis and planning time

  • Time to access resources and resource sharing

  • Change in how instructional time is used

Benefits: test

  • Students are engaged and enjoy learning at their appropriate achievement level

  • Lower instance of negative behaviors

  • Students are able to shine in their areas of strength and grow in their areas of weakness

  • Teachers become even more familiar with their students’ academic needs and are better equipped to respond to them

  • As one teacher put it, “It is just more fun to teach this way!”
