Instructional Coach Weekly Update

Week of November 7-11 and 14-18

Strategy Spotlight

Visible Learners.... I know I have posted about this several times over the past month or so, but we have the posters designed and they are in the process of being made at GWAEA! So those teachers who reached out to me will be getting one of those posters for their classroom soon!


I have already begun going into some of the classrooms of the teachers who requested the Visible Learner poster to begin teaching lessons that correspond with the character traits on the poster.


If you are interested in a poster and the corresponding lessons that go with the Visible Learner character traits, please let me know... I believe we are ordering a couple extras!

FAST testing on TIER

Reminders:


  • Progress monitor any day of the week (try not to do any of Fridays)
  • Clear your cache! (email me if you want step by step directions on how to do this!) The state is saying this might be affecting our timers....
  • When you go in to enter time, to just look at JUST your intervention group of students, click on "Filter" then type your name into the box that says, "Staff Responsible," NOT the box that says "Teacher."
  • We need to be completely up to date on Entering Time - if you are behind on this take time to update time no later than this FRIDAY. The state is now collecting data weekly on our school (officially started last week).
  • Teachers should be entering time for THEIR INTERVENTION GROUP each day (not your homeroom students that go to intervention).
  • Don't forget to contact me if/when your intervention is ready to switch to something else - together we must get it changed on the system.
