Targeted Instruction Block

An opportunity to intervene and enrich

BENJAMIN DATA DAY....a big success!

  • Teachers shared data collected from various assessments (MAP, ISAT, instructional text levels)
  • Students were placed on the Data Wall based on district criteria
  • Grade level teams determined which students were in need of a literacy intervention and organized groups
  • Assigned teachers to plan lessons, monitor progress, and document the intervention

OPTIONS FOR ENRICHING AND EXTENDING

  • Author studies
  • Genre studies
  • Literature Circles
  • Research science/social students topics
  • Collaborative Reasoning
  • Readers' Theater
  • Class/school newspaper
  • Create a magazine centered around a chosen topic

Use RIT bands to focus on how skills change in terms of complexity, key vocabulary, and focused skills
