1c. Teachers promote student reflection using collaborative tools to reveal and clarify students' conceptual understanding and thinking, planning, and creative processes.
AP Statistics - When practicing the free response questions from previous years, the students have been trained to serve as AP graders. After completing the questions, students are given copies of the grading rubrics and are trained on how to apply the rubric to the free response answers they ahve previously completed. Students theng rade the questions themselves, collaborating with their classmates to clarify whether a solution fits the colelge board criteria.
Algebra 3 - Students are encouraged to collaborate with other students outside of class after completing homework assignments and make corrections to any items that may have been done incorrectly. Homework is not graded until after this collaboration takes place and corrections are made.
Algebra 1 - Students are encouraged to collaborate with other students during class after completing homework assignments and make corrections to any items that may have been done incorrectly. Homework is not graded until after this collaboration takes place and corrections are made.
2d. Teachers provide students with multiple and varied formative and summative assessments aligned with content and technology standards and use resulting data to inform learning and teaching.
Summative assessments in the form of projects have been incorporated into all classes. Additionally, formative assessments using the TI-Navigator system have been developed for all classes. A goal for this summer is to develop more of these formative assessments. As they are developed, teachers are encouraged to place a copy of them on the shared network drive so they can be accessed by any teacher who would like to use them.
5b. Teachers exhibit leadership by demonstrating a vision of technology infusion, participating in shared decision making and community building, and developing the leadership and technology skills of others.
The math department has received initial training on the new navigator systems, with more to come. This ongoing training will be a focus for the math department for the 2012-2013 school year.
