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 […]

The Top Ten Influence Factors for Student Achievement

When I first heard of these top ten influence factors for student achievement, I was actually surprised at which ones rated the highest and which ones I would have rated higher.

I’ve been talking a lot about that window of opportunity for language development that the literature tells us happens for students on the autism spectrum between the ages of 3 and 5. I’ve also share with you a tool for assessing where students are with their social skills (The Denver Early Start Curriculum Checklist) so today I want to share a resource that can be used with our young students […]

Check Out this ReMARKable Way to Put a White Board on Any Flat Surface!

Isn’t it amazing how every time you turn around, there is something new and exciting that is being developed, designed, invented. I spent a lot of time in the office this summer and one day the principal in my building asked me if I saw the new Professional Learning Community room.

Did You Know There IS a Curriculum to Teach Phonemic Awareness?

I’m always looking for foundation pieces that can help teachers with a scope and sequence in a solid curriculum. I feel that when you have a tool like this, teachers feel more confident with filling in the gaps and showing great progress. I recently had a conversation with one of our literacy instructors who mentioned to me that teachers typically send struggling readers to her asking for her help without […]

How To Get Continuing Education Hours for FREE!

Now that teachers are allowed to renew their teaching licenses using continuing education hours, it’s nice when we find a free option. Sometimes it can be challenging to get 90 hours of continuing education hours in 5 years, depending upon how much your school corporation allows you to get released from the classroom.
