|Language Arts Standards Coverage Chart|
A few weeks ago we went to our second training with Dennis. One of the main activities he had us work on was going through the language arts and math standards one by one and arranging them in a chart based on how well they have been covered in our classroom this year. There were three columns: covered well, partially covered and covered little or not at all. We used our standards list with our marks to help us fill out the chart. The standards we have partially covered or not yet taught went on what he calls a "Hit List". The idea being that you make sure to target those standards on your "Hit List" by the end of the school year. This was a great exercise because it really helps you examine your own teaching and it ensures that you don't leave your students with any academic holes as they move on to the next grade.
