Using Data to Improve Literacy 3B – December 2016

In our December meeting we started by looking into the 5 Essential Building Blocks of Reading.  In this exploration we also discussed how these might evolve from K-3 to 4-12.

We then transitioned into the first two steps of the Outcomes-Driven model: looking at data to identify, and validate where the need for support would be needed the most.  This in some cases even led to writing a SMART Goal to propose how we might be able to measure improvement for the support that we offered to students.  The process was modeled quickly and then turned over to participants to try the process with the data from their own district.  Great data analysis was taking place digging deeper into areas to identify for more focus in instruction and support.

Have a great Holiday Break and please bring progress monitoring data with you to our January session as we will be moving into that stage of the Outcomes-Driven Model.

Happy Holidays!
