  • (The recommendations of this report) are consistent with recommendations on adolescent literacy that have been made recently by the National Governors Association’s Center for Best Practices, said Ilene Berman, a program director for that center. “We, too, recommend that states build support for a state focus on adolescent literacy,” she said. “We encourage states to write and implement literacy plans.”

  • This article just offers more justification for the project we are designing. Notice the mention of data from 5th grade thru 8th grade. I still think we need to look at how we inform high school teachers to teach/support rigorous content area reading.

    • Not every teacher, he said, needs to be a reading specialist. But all teachers do need to be trained, he added, in how to recognize reading deficits, and schools need to have strategies to respond to them

    The QUERI Process
    1. Identify high-risk/high-volume diseases/problems.
    2. Identify best practices.
    3. Define existing practice patterns and outcomes across Veterans Health Administration and current variation from best practices.
    4. Identify and implement interventions (including performance criteria) to promote best practices.
    5. Document that best practices improve outcomes.
    6. Document that outcomes are associated with improved health-related quality of life.

  • Important that we provide structure for teachers to use the data available to them. Here is some synthesis of the research about using data to inform practice. I like that it provides a structure.

  • How do instruction, curriculum, and professional development influence middle grades students’ algebra learning? Project 2061, in collaboration with the University of Delaware and Texas A&M University, investigated this question as part of an Interagency Education Research Initiative (IERI) project to study the impact of professional development and curriculum materials on instruction and student achievement for specific learning goals in middle school mathematics.

    • focused all aspects of the study on a single clearly defined learning goal for grades 7 and 8:

      Symbolic equations can be used to summarize how the quantity of something changes over time or in response to other changes.

    • using four different curricula.
  • Another online graphing utility. Not as rigorous as Swivel, but offers a way of creating interesting venn diagrams. Great tool for teaching how to label and provide unit data so people can read the graph most effectively.
