Week two update
I have added and changed some information to my action research initial plan. I am trying to incorporate vertical alignment meetings with the use of data to more efficiently structure students at the beginning and throughout the school year. We are heading in a direction to hopefully use one of the first days of in-service to use data and teacher support to eliminate teachers having to learn, on their own, about a student in their classroom this coming year. We realize that we will have several new students, but this type of action research should help save time and allow for quicker evaluation of students that moved on to the next grade. This idea will require the use of test data in both areas of math and reading. I still have a goal of learning how data can drive instruction in a positive way, but I have added some information to help get me there. I think that with the help and support of my site supervisor we can research and help value instructional time for students and teachers.
