There are numerous strategies being used by highly effective educators across the country to increase student learning and help all students progress towards college and career readiness.
(PRWEB) November 26, 2013
School Improvement Network, the leader in educator effectiveness resources, today announced a new video with a formative assessment strategy to increase student learning by using a three-sentence essay. The strategy is presented by a 12th grade ELA teacher in Shelby County, Tennessee, who shows in her own classroom how helping students synthesize their learning in short essays can increase student learning and monitor student progress.
“There are numerous strategies being used by highly effective educators across the country to increase student learning and help all students progress towards college and career readiness,” said Chet D. Linton, CEO and president of School Improvement Network. “In our work in thousands of schools and classrooms in all 50 states, we’ve captured these strategies on video to make them accessible to all educators and scalable to reach all students.”
The new formative assessment segment shows how helping students write a three-sentence essay in which they claim big ideas, cite information from a text, and clarify or explain the connections, increases student learning and helps educators effectively monitor student progress.
