Today, teachers in our district spent the day going over our data from the spring Oklahoma Core Curriculum Test results. Thanks to the wonderful leaders at Educational Development Instructional Team (EDIT), we have a thorough understanding of what our school's scores mean.
As with all schools, we see where our school needs to improve, overall. The real question though, as the school year progresses, will be: Where do my individual students need to improve in reading?
Martha Michael, president of EDIT, and Daddy Swope, vice president, have graciously provided Oklahoma school districts with Intervention Charts that teachers can use to track which students need to work on specific standards.
(STAR reading tests will print reports for you with similar groupings, but if you don't have that program, this will help you organize your groups.)

I am constantly seeking ways to amplify my students' voices and choices.
