When students make their own learning choices and goals they are more accountable for their learning.
I will use a station rotation model so that I am providing core instruction to a small group while individualizing instruction via adaptive math and reading software. I also am attempting to innovate the way I collect student evidence for Standards Referenced Grading, making this task easier to manage and share with parents.
Step 1: Integrate an adaptive math software into math rotations
Step 2: Plan for and adjust station rotation model to meet time constraints, rotation limitations, small group needs, etc.
Step 3: Analyze software data, classroom observations, and student evidence frequently
Step 4: Adjust instruction based on data and student feedback
Step 6: Adjust station rotations as needed, based on student data and evidence of learning
Step 7: I will use Seesaw to have students upload photos and videos of their progress towards learning goals.
Step 8: Use Seesaw artifacts as an online learning portfolio that can be shared with parents instantly instead of waiting until conferences.
Step 9: Monitor Fall, Winter, and EOY data to determine growth, success areas, and make modifications to plan for future instruction.
Reflection & Findings:
Trailblazers will post thoughts here from their three reflection periods during the year.
