As both a middle and high school teacher, I've often felt frustrated with not having an age-appropriate, cost-effective method to: artfully and visually track students' progress over time, rapidly switch up seating, and acknowledge the efforts of ALL LEARNERS.
Combined with a growing collection of Acknowledge/Track Students' Effort and Growth w/WorkStork Stickers
, the WorkStork Custom Dashboard artfully tracks student progress in one place. Each student will have a beautiful, visual record of their academic and/or character efforts over the long run.
Uses (purchased alone, without WorkStork stickers):
-at each student’s seat, use the dashboard to welcome every learner to your class
-learn students’ names faster
-easily seat learners in classes with new students or substitute teachers
-maximize instructional time: return announcements/graded papers to seats before class
-create a physical, customized barrier to allow for a private, cheat free-work space during independent work and assessment
-handy for visiting panels, inter-class debates, visiting guests, or special events
Uses (when purchased with WorkStork stickers):
-maximize instructional impact: with visual cues of student progress, proactively organize students into strategic pairings/groups and re-focus instruction according to need, allowing for targeted, differentiated instruction
-sticker accumulation encourages reflection on long-term progress both before/during class independent work and/or testing times
-make recognizing growth, grit, and progress an easy-to-implement, DAILY reality
-communicate student achievement: in lieu of teacher-telling-student, the dashboard serves as a reference for students to reflect and speak about their class progress with teachers, counselors, families, and visitors
Dashboard Design Features:
The WorkStork Custom Dashboard is made of durable, cover-weight paper and is pre-scored for easy folding.
Total cost = $2.00 per dashboard x total number of students (plus tax and s/h fees).
Please follow these directions carefully. Because the pricing reflects dashboards printed in bulk, we cannot accommodate name/spelling/extra students/class shift changes once the order has shipped. We will, however, send two write-in-name dashboards (as a teacher, I know that class switches sometimes occur w/o notice =) ).
Class names will be printed in the clarendon typeface (pictured in the images above). For each class, you will have your choice of blue, gray, or dark red. Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate multiple colors per class.
