I am already on summer break and am already thinking about things I want to do differently next year. It just so happens that Finding Joy in 6th Grade is having her first linky party and the topic is "next year I'm definitely going to...."so I just had to link up!
I have talked a lot about how my school is really pushing differentiating in math next year. One way that I plan to do that is through pre/post testing. I purchased Ashleigh's Common Core Assessments for 4th grade and she has assessments that go along with each standard and she also has charts to keep track of student scores. I not only want to use these charts for myself, but I also want the students to use them to track their own progress. I think this is a great way to hold students accountable and for them to be able to see their progress throughout the year.
I also want to keep up with tracking student data to use as evidence on my evaluations. Most importantly though, I want to use the data that I collect to help group my students for differentiation.
What are some things that you are already planning on doing differently next year? Link up with Finding Joy in 6th Grade!
