Learning Target Strategy
Tina Turpin, 8th grade SCI created the ‘learning target’ red/yellow/green and WIN Sign Up. However, she even went BEYOND that to type an X to see specifically what the students needed help with, if they said they were lost. (those are the students red X’s)! Students say all the time “I don’t get it” and aren’t able to articulate what they don’t get. By Tina providing for students the standards in this way, she is helping them to put in to words what the specific issue is that they need remediation on.
WIN (What I Need) Sign Up
WIN sign up is for the students who want extra help on the specific items that they put a red X on. It was more than just saying I understand/I don’t/I’m lost. There was an intentional follow through with the ‘lost’ students (8 specifically from the screen shot).
