This "Focus Board," or "Concept Board," is a short, two-slide PPT that compliments the first story of the 2013 Scott Foremsan, Reading Street series. When printed two-sided, the students can add words or pictures daily during the concept discussion in order to answer the weekly "Big Question." On the reverse side learning targets are included for all targeted skills for the week. The students have an area to demonstrate their understanding of each target so that the teacher can conduct daily formative assessments. I project the file on my smart board so that we can add to it throughout the week during whole group instruction.
