Do you know if you're on track getting students ready for TNReady? Have you revisited the instructional best practices for TNReady published by the state in summer 2015?
Don't have time to read 200-pages of material? You're not the only one.
This 5-page table pulls practicable, actionable instructional best practices in bulleted lists. The adjacent column includes related reflective questions to think about your instructional practice and how you can add or tweak elements of your literacy instruction to boost reading comprehension.
The cheat sheet focuses on: integration of reading and writing, strategies to improve reading comprehension, motivating students in literacy,and incorporating writing workshops in your class.
This is the time of year when it's easy to get stuck in the weeds with he holidays around the corner. This is the best time to take a step back and ask what's working and what needs more attention.
The newness of TNReady means we need to be especially reflective educators this year to grow our practice in the service of student growth.
