Developing Action Plans for Teaching in the Tested Content Areas

Any given school year, schools inherit a population of students who are promoted to the next grade without having mastered foundational skills/concepts taught in previous grades. Consequently, these students enter the grade level at a disadvantage for acquiring mastery of new, grade-level skills/concepts and are at a greater risk for falling even further behind their grade-level peers. This workshop series will not only build your teams’ capacity to construct a detailed, annual action plan for the tested areas for each grade level and content area, but will also simultaneously build (a) students’ (b) teachers’ and (c) administrators’ procedural knowledge and conceptual understanding of skills/concepts with special considerations for complexity, frequency, and considerations for initial exposure and re-teaching opportunities.
