There's nothing better than "Fresh Data"

I love to dig deep into data to see how students are doing in the classroom. The critical thinking and reflection begins, hmmm........what should we do different to overcome the obstacles and reach those students who are not growing as much? How do we celebrate with those students who had true growth and work so hard?

I have been meeting with grade levels to analyze the data and collaborate on what is working and what is not working in the classroom. Great conversations are happening! There are some things out of our control, but there are many things we can control and change. We need to stay focused on those things in our control!

With all of this being said, your Monday morning collab. should be focused on digging deep into your data with your team. Did your partner(s) have more success in a particular subject? If so, ask questions about how they are teaching things, instructing, are they providing more hands-on discovery, etc......... If your whole grade level is struggling in an area, brainstorm and critically think about a way to do things different! If what you have been doing is not working, it is time to do things differently!

How can I support you in this process? Is there someone you would like to visit and watch in action? How can Deaneen and Chelsey assist? Can someone model something for you or observe and offer suggestions? Please let me know what you need!
