Easy DATA Collection with a TWIST!

Easy DATA Collection with a TWIST!

Data collection is a pain, let’s just get that out there.  It’s a necessary evil, but sometimes I find that teachers collect data only because they have to in order to be able to report progress every grading period. What if we would collect data and analyze it along the way?  If we take a look at what is working and what isn’t to adjust instruction, PLUS share the data, we just might get some interesting results!  Share the data with whom?

Taking data could be both simple and effective.  You can make it effective if you add one additional element to your collection sheets.

Take a look!

I’m going to hear Dr. Bruce Perryspeak on the Butler University Campus next weekend and I can’t wait to hear what this amazing researcher and author has to share!  If you haven’t read his book, The Boy Who Was Raised as a Dog, it’s a must read!  I have mentioned that before, but what Dr Perry has shared in that book continues to stay with me and I’m sure you will find it valuable as well.

Dr. Perry was recently featured on 60 Minutesand interviewed by Oprahon social emotional issues and how it affects the brain.   This is information that every parent and every educator should be aware of.  It’s a HOT TOPICin education right now if, for some reason, the movement hasn’t hit your area!

If you read Dr. Perry’s book or have another wonderful resource you’d like to share, please let me know! I’m always looking for interesting and amazing people who write about interesting and amazing things!

You take care and I’ll see you next time!
