Student data notebooks are an invaluable tool to use in the Language Arts classroom! Data notebooks empower students to take charge of their own learning by providing the opportunity to track their progress of the Language Arts curriculum.
This documentation of learning allows for student analysis and reflection. The visual feedback gives students the chance to “see” their own learning. They can see the short-term gain in understanding, which helps motivate them toward reaching their long-term Language Arts’ goal.
This student data notebook, created by Beach House, is organized by the English Language Arts Common Core standards of Reading: Literature, Reading: Informational Text, Writing, Speaking & Listening, and Language. Each Common Core standard is further broken down into the specific Common Core strands.
This Common Core Teacher Data Notebook, created by Beach House, is specifically designed for the teacher to use as a way to track their students’ data. Included in this pdf document are two data tracking pages: Common Core Check-List and Student Progress Check-List.
The Common Core Check-List is a place for teachers to document what Common Core ELA strand has been taught and when it was taught. Each page is set up with the assignment name in the far left column and a space for the date the Common Core strand was taught under the appropriate Common Core column to the right.
The Student Progress Check-List is a place for teachers to record their students’ progress on each Common Core strand. The far left column provides a space for each student’s name and the columns to the right allow teachers to track student progress with a score indicating the student’s understanding of that particular strand.
This “I Can” poster set, created by Beach House, is a simple way to visually post the learning goal for your Language Arts classroom.
This set of “I Can” statements is a student friendly version of each of the English Language Arts Common Core Strands. Each poster lists a single ELA strand number along with the Common Core strand worded in simplified language. Print each of these posters and place them, as needed, on a bulletin board, clip to a white board, or insert into a clear, plastic sleeve located within students’ line of sight.
