Consolidate …as well as ‘clarify’

On reflection of our student survey and December assessment results, I’m going to add ‘consolidate’ as a second goal to work on, in particular: “To help us remember, my teacher talks about things that we already learned”. Scopes and sequences, learning continuums and all those documents, meetings and reminders that tell us where we should be at each stage of the curriculum can sometimes mean I don’t give my students enough time to review their past – and impressive – learning. At the beginning and at the end of a lesson is a ‘convenient’ time to do this but is it better to seamlessly weave in past and present knowledge throughout the lessons in a week? Do the students have metacognition that they are ‘reviewing’ then? So the next time they answer they’ll answer ‘yes’ to that question in the survey?!

New year, new school, new goal – Clarify

CLARIFY is the Big C for me this year.

I will do this by creating and being more explicit in explaining the content objective and aligned language objective for teaching phonics and word study in the Dual-Language Enrichment teacher for K-2.

I hope that students will be able to say, read, understand and have success with the objectives.
