School Goals 2015-2016
School Goal #1
To help students achieve on the EOC Milestone test, I provide several resources for them. I post news announcements about the Milestone tests, I provide links to study guides, and I offer extra learning opportunities through Shmoop and USA Test Prep. Below I have included examples of my announcements as well as a screenshot of the User Links I provide for test preparation.

School Goal #2
To help students achieve on the AP exam, I offer continual support and opportunities for learning and practice. More than half of the synchronous sessions dealt with preparation for the AP exam. I provided incentives for students to use Shmoop as test prep for the AP exam. I offered students extra learning opportunities that would help prepare them for the AP exam, including a full-length practice exam, timed essays, and passages with multiple choice questions. I provided links to resources and created a guide for answering multiple choice questions for the students.
School Goal #3
I use data analysis as much as possible to understand how my students are doing and especially how I can help them improve their skills and knowledge. For example, I used data from quiz item analysis to determine what sorts of multiple choice questions my students were having the most trouble with on the AP practice exams, and then I created materials and practices to address just those sorts of questions.
