Follow up from our Professional Development last Friday...
- Here's the link to the PRESS folder that Laura shared on Friday. Please add things you think would be helpful for your colleagues. Thank you Laura for putting this together!
- On Friday Kendra taught us a Running Record Protocol. This would be a great protocol to use in your Academic PLCs. If you'd like support with it or help in analyzing running records you can always invite Kendra or myself to join your PLC.
- Kendra also mentioned the importance of a reader's self correction rate. We want readers to have a 1:2 self correction rate. Below are directions on how to find a students self correction rate by using the errors and self corrections.
Reading Text Levels
Take a look at the following link and reflect on your students. Are we on track for students text level growth Also, the district has used this chart as a reference when we did BAS on all students at the end of the year. It's worth knowing that these targets generally tend to under-predict MCA-III proficiency by about one reading level (e.g., the chart suggests that a Level O/P is about where kids should be around April in 3rd grade, but we found that Level P/Q was a more accurate predictor of MCA’s). In fact, a conservative estimate would be at least one level above the month-by-month levels in this chart.
