We are finishing up our middle of the year data and starting to look at results. We analyze the data in at least three ways: individual, class and whole school. Our faculty and staff are celebrating the successes and working hard to develop systemic changes to help with our areas that need improvement.
When looking at a systemic change, we discuss a variety of things such as, our delivery of instruction, the intensity of the instruction and the group’s dynamic. We do not look at just one assessment tool. We try to triangulate our data.
Research has studied the impact of students reading at home. Below is a summary of a study done by Nagy and Herman.
It is our hope as a team, we will have all of our students become the best scholars they can be. At school, we will provide a safe learning environment and rigorous instruction using research-based curriculum. At home, students should be reading and completing their homework. Together what a difference we can make!
Have a great weekend!
