1462/1462_255847045_17296.jpg

Questions/Answers

*Should lesson plans focus on intentional teaching of standards or list every standard they can cover even if it is lightly covered? The focus is on intentional teaching of standards, not on spiral review, or continuous work. (Administration 4/17/2014)

*Should each standard be assessed? Yes, and recall above, the standards listed are those that will be intentionally taught. (Administration 4/17/2014)

*If teachers agree to teach the same standards and same skills in the same unit can individual teachers alter the activities in which they use to teach the content and skills? Yes, please alter the activities on the Instruction Planner to reflect the activities being used. (Administration 4/17/2014)

*Can additional assessment types be added to the Instruction Planner? Yes, Dr. Leonard will add those suggested during the April training with Pam. (Administration 4/17/2014)

Are teachers required to provide documentation and/or evidence for assessments? Yes, documentation may be a rubric, a check-list, teacher observation notes, etc. (Administration 4/17/2014)

Do assessments have to be consistent across the grade level? No, as long as evidence is provided to demonstrate the students have learned/mastered the standard a variety of assessments can be used. (Administration 4/17/2014)

What administrative guidelines do we need to adhere to in choosing and/or creating our assessments? All assessments must: 1) provide evidence, 2) be standards-based, 3) vary throughout the school year. (Administration 4/17/2014)


Tips:

Use the 'shifting dates' option only in unplanned absence situations, such as storm days.

When completing your Science and/or Social Studies standard blocks in Instruction Planner, please do not repeat the standard in the first column. The standard will be listed in the 'title', the first column will include the skills for the standard, second column will include the activities that will be used to teach the specific skills and the third column (next year) will include the assessment used to assess the specific standard.

Do not login to www.clihome.com on more than one computer at a time. This causes an overload to their server and plans may be lost.

Mark your calendars: Pam's next visit is a split visit again--1/2 day on May 14th (8:30-12:15), and 1/2 day on May 15 (8:30-12:15).

Staff,
over the summer, some staff members came in to search for resources that could assist you in implementation of common core standards. Please look over the attachment(s) pertaining to your grade, and save to your jump drive. Hope it helps. Thank you to the staff who worked very hard to find these resources.

If you run into a wall, don't turn around and give up.
Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it.

ATTENTION: DO NOT COOK IN YOUR CLASSROOMS.


The supply room will be open daily from 8:00am to 8:30am at no other time is anyone allowed to pick up supplies.


Teachers K-2:

To complete the 4th quarter, teachers are to use their discretion and revisit and/or reteach any standards that were not mastered by the students in your classroom AFTER they have finished their Saxon and StoryTown series. Each individual teacher will be responsible for deciding which standards their students need to be retaught and also for inputting their own units into Instruction Planner.

This is to allow flexibility within your grade level and especially within your classroom, so all students can be given the opportunity to master previously unachieved standards. There is no resource requirement, please again, use your discretion in choosing quality resources to be used as teaching tools. If you have any questions, please email me at Amy.Leonard@sendit.nodak.edu.
