Please document in your ChIP feedback form when you are analyzing your grade group writing pieces. You need this documentation for instructional and Program Review purposes.
Prior to giving a grade group common assessment or district assessment please have professional conversations around where students will potentially "struggle". The professional discourse will lead into deeper understanding of the content and its delivery. Through these conversations you may have to revise your instruction to minimize the number of students that may struggle on an assignment or an assessment. The wording unfortunately is a common "obstacle" with our district assessments. The standards require critical thinking, problem solving and reasoning. Those skills have to be modeled and taught on a continuous basis. The common core requires us to use our professional skills to help students master the standards. Remember the elevator video you all viewed at the staff development in the fall? Is your instruction stuck on the elevator? The old, "I taught it, but they didn't get it" explanation is no longer acceptable within our profession. All professions require collaborative work to face and solve "challenges".
