Go around and introduce, describe populations   ( 5 min)

 

Active Participation/Listening:   (no multi tasking, time out to talk to RT, everyone responds to each question)

 

 

Trained data team leader from comprehensive school facilitates

 

Use data from quarterly assessments/ standards/ writing samples

 

Anecdotal evidence is OK…. if it is representative of your population

 

Share ideas!

 

Refer to the STANDARDS!!!!

 

Which students have mastered which grade level outcomes/standards and proficiencies before explicit instruction has taken place?

 

Which grade level concepts and skills are most of your students lacking (non-proficient) at the beginning of the school year? At semester? Just before state and/or district assessments begin?
