I am often inspired by all the learning that happens in our ESM classrooms. During any moment of a given walkthrough one may find students either refining their newfound understanding in collaboration with peers and/or teachers, or they may be reviewing acquired material as they prepare for a quiz or test. Others, still, could even be exploring brand new concepts, looking for new paths to integrate their learning into an existing schema or view of the world. Wherever students find themselves in the learning process, one vital key constantly present in our toolbox is checking for understanding.
Below are a few questions that are often asked by professionals in their pursuit of mastery.
- Have I tracked enough assignments to be able to identify prevailing misconceptions?
- Which instructional strategy will remediate learning gaps in this common assessment?
- When are other interventions required?
- Who else should I collaborate with to help students achieve mastery in this particular area?
In order to boost teachers’ collaboration efforts and to help bring students to mastery of academic content, the school has purchased MasteryConnect. By watching this short 3-minute video, I trust your understanding of the big picture of standards-based education will increase. As always, feel free to discuss this initiative with me in person. I’ll be happy to serve you.
We’re looking forward to sharing our first progress report data with you next week.
