  47. 47. Ms. Jones works at a Title I K-8 Center. She teaches 6th grade Language Arts. Her third period classroom consists of 25 students, five students are identified as English Language Learners, one of which has not attended school regularly prior to his arrival in the United States. Three students are identified as students with disabilities that are serviced through consultation meetings with an Exceptional Student Education teacher. The reading levels of her students vary between proficient and below proficiency. Scenario #1
  48. 48. Reflection and Development Focus: reflect on your current students’ achievement data as it relates to teacher professional practice and identify an instructional strategy that you will focus on to grow professionally and improve student(s) learning. Current student data indicates that my students abilities and language proficiency varies between emergent and proficient in reading language arts. I will focus on the following instructional strategies: Differentiated learning, CRISS Strategies and ELL strategies. To meet the needs of these students I will need to increase my ability to differentiate instruction and increase my knowledge of ELL strategies. Growth Target: Describe what you plan to learn and the expected impact on your students’ learning. I plan to learn how to effectively incorporate differentiated instruction into my classroom routine instruction. I also plan to learn CRISS strategies to encourage student independence. I will also learn more diverse ELL strategies to add to my toolbox so that I may more adequately address the needs of the ELL students in my classroom. Plan of Action: Describe what you plan to do to achieve your deliberate practice growth target. I plan to achieve a classroom which addresses the diverse needs of my students, where the students that are proficient will be allowed to grow and increase their proficiency while those struggling learners will also be given the attention and tools they need to become proficient learners. Additionally I plan to assist my ELL students become more comfortable with their new language so that they begin using it in their daily lives and increase their reading ability in their new language. Reflection and Outcome Impact: Describe how your deliberate practice growth target has been achieved and the impact on your professional growth and student(s) learning. After taking the CRISS workshop in October, I began incorporating the CRISS strategies into my daily instruction. I noticed that students independence in completing their classroom assignments increased as more students were able to complete their assignments within the allotted classroom time with fewer requests for assistance. After taking in- service regarding differentiated instruction in September, I was able to group my students according to their academic needs and design instruction which would challenge them without frustrating the struggling learners. Data from iREADY indicated that all students showed an increase in reading proficiency and reading comprehension upon the midyear assessment. The ELL strategies I learned during in-service throughout the school year resulted in all of my students increasing their understanding of the English language as indicated by their increased wiliness to participate in classroom discussions and an increase in their ELL level on the end of the year CELLA assessment. Professional’s name: Ms. Jones Employee number: 245123 School/worksite: Sunset K-8 Center School/worksite location #: 3333 school year: 2015-2016 Directions: identify one deliberate practice growth target specific to instructional practice that impacts your student’s learning.
  49. 49. Focus: Reflect on your current students’ achievement data as it relates to teacher professional practice and identify an instructional strategy that you will focus on to grow professionally and improve student(s) learning. Current student data indicate that my students’ abilities and language proficiency vary between emergent and proficient in English Language Arts (ELA). I will focus on the following instructional strategies: Differentiated Learning, CRISS Strategies and ELL strategies. To meet the needs of these students I will increase my ability to differentiate instruction and my knowledge of ELL strategies.
  50. 50. Growth Target: Describe what you plan to learn and the expected impact on your students’ learning. I plan to learn how to effectively incorporate differentiated instruction into my classroom routine. I also plan to learn CRISS strategies to encourage student independence. I will also learn more diverse English Language Learners (ELL) strategies to add to my toolbox so that I may more adequately address the needs of the ELL students in my classroom.
  51. 51. Plan of Action: Describe what you plan to do to achieve your deliberate practice growth target. I plan to achieve a classroom which addresses the diverse needs of my students, where the students that are proficient will be allowed to grow and increase their proficiency while those struggling learners will also be given the attention and tools they need to become proficient learners. Additionally I plan to assist my ELL students become more comfortable with their new language so that they begin using it in their daily lives and increase their reading ability in their new language.
  52. 52. Impact: Describe how your deliberate practice growth target has been achieved and the impact on your professional growth and student(s) learning. After taking the CRISS workshop in October, I began incorporating the CRISS strategies into my daily instruction.

  54. 54. Reflection and Development Focus: reflect on your current students’ achievement data as it relates to teacher professional practice and identify an instructional strategy that you will focus on to grow professionally and improve student(s) learning. The focus will be on outreach efforts to increase the number of applicants for the magnet program by tracking the number of magnet applicants and schools from which they came for the past three years, and identify trends. Growth Target: Describe what you plan to learn and the expected impact on your students’ learning. I plan to identify existing trends and learn strategies for increasing the applicant pool for the magnet program.
