The school year is beginning to take on the uniformity where you can’t really tell one week from the other. Real content started Friday. We are starting the progression of a 15 day (or so) rotation. Pre-test, teach, post-test, analyze data.
For non-educators, the pre-test helps you group students. You don’t want too big of a spread between students in one group. Teach and formally informally assess on a daily basis so you know if they learned the day’s lesson. Then the unit test and look closely at the data to see if the students as a whole are ready to move on.
I had a whole bunch more to write about, but that was during my morning walk and I forgot it all. I’ve spent three days trying to remember, but I can’t. So I’m just going to post this and start new at the end of the week.
