VHS 2012-13

SMART GOALS

MATH

We will use Acuity questions to focus on weak areas identified in Westest 2 data on radicals and triangles by using bell ringers at least two to three times per week beginning on Monday, August 27, 2012 and ending with Westest 2.

We will focus on 1-2 step equations to build up to multi-step expressions, using a question as a bell ringer and for homework starting Monday, August 27, 2012 and ending with Westest 2.

We will measure each of these gains by comparing data from last year’s grade level scores (corhort) to this year’s grade level scores as we monitor Benchmark testing this year with an expected 5 percent gain increase of each benchmark taken. Appropriate grade levels will use Cognitive Tutor and track data generated on student progress to design interventions.

We will use formative assessment such as Benchmark tests and teacher generated Acuity tests to assess student success. Formative assessment data will be brought to PLC meetings to address curricular concerns.

ELA

We will use Acuity questions to focus on weak areas identified in Westest 2 on literary devices, vocabulary, reading comprehension, and to connect to various types of literature and resources by using Bell ringers and teacher made formative assessments at least two to three times per week beginning on Monday, August 27, 2012 and ending with Westest 2.

We will measure gains by comparing data from last year’s grade level scores (corhort) to this year’s grade level scores as we monitor Benchmark testing this year with an expected 5 percent gain increase of each benchmark taken.

We will use higher order classroom questioning techniques daily and use WVWrites once per week beginning on Monday, August 27, 2012 and ending with Westest 2 to improve literacy through writing by focusing on sentence structure, vocabulary, and to connect to various types of literature and resources. WVWrites data will be used to assess progress weekly to determine needed interventions.

We will use formative assessment such as Benchmark tests and teacher generated Acuity tests to assess student success. Formative assessment data will be brought to PLC meetings to address curricular concerns.

SOCIAL STUDIES

We will use Acuity questions to focus on addressing weaknesses identified from Westest 2 data on Economics, Geography and Historical connections by using Acuity Bell ringers and teacher made formative assessments at least two to three times per week beginning on Monday, August 27, 2012 and ending with Westest 2.

We will measure gains by comparing data from last year’s grade level scores (corhort) to this year’s grade level scores as we monitor Benchmark testing this year with an expected 5 percent gain increase of each benchmark taken.

We will use higher order classroom questioning techniques daily and use WVWrites every other week beginning on Monday, August 27, 2012 and ending with Westest 2 to improve Literacy through writing in the social studies content area. WVWrites data will be used to assess progress after each session to determine needed interventions.

We will use formative assessment such as Benchmark tests and teacher generated Acuity tests to assess student success. Formative assessment data will be brought to PLC meetings to address curricular concerns.

SCIENCE

We will use Acuity questions to focus on addressing weaknesses identified from Westest 2 data on Experimental Design Steps and Analyzing Charts, Graphs, and Tables to be used as bell ringers at least two to three times per week beginning on Monday, August 27, 2012 and ending with Westest 2.

We will focus on weaknesses identified in Westest 2 data in Application of Science by using Acuity questions as bell ringers and in homework starting Monday, August 27, 2012 and ending with Westest 2.

We will measure each of these gains by comparing data from last year’s grade level scores (corhort) to this year’s grade level scores as we monitor Benchmark testing this year with an expected 5 percent gain increase of each benchmark taken.

We will use formative assessment such as Benchmark tests and teacher generated Acuity tests to assess student success. Formative assessment data will be brought to PLC meetings to address curricular concerns.
