I've also begun printing off a handful of practice sheets (nothing fancy, just the provided resources with our text adoption) for the students that just want some extra practice or for the students that I think need an extra challenge beyond the basic material (differentiated tasks during class). I have backed off from the more self-paced approach and focused more on depth than speed in the classroom. Students that finish early I encourage to work on a more challenging task or review past lessons with each other. This has helped to make daily class less crazy and more focused.
|Pretest to Quiz Growth Results|
I'm pleased with the growth results shown on our quiz today (measured from the pretest to current quiz) as they seem to be much more consistent than past results have been. I feel that individual student needs have been met more intentionally with this approach and look forward to moving more in this direction as the year progresses.
