IEJ Planning Days Grades K-5

"A plan is only as good as those who see it through."

Sir Ken Robinson on creative schools, transforming education

THE FOUR BIG DATA QUESTIONS

1. Where did my students perform well & how do I know this?

2. Where did my students struggle or have difficulty?

3. What instructional practices or changes do I need to make to ensure that more students are successful on particular standards?

4. What am I going to do if they still do not perform well?
