What will I do differently?

I'm linking up with Finding JOY in 6th Grade for:

 See what I hope to do differently!!

  •  This year was my first year in a new school division, school and position.  The majority of the year I spent learning about the school and the students.  I was definitely not the most efficient and effective teacher.  Next year I plan to set up my targeted literacy group using a Daily 5 / 4 Block for Literacy model.  I have used this model in the past, but this year it just didn't happen.  I plan on making sure my targeted strategies are in place at each centre.  Stay tuned, as I plan more this summer (we still have 4 weeks left with kiddos) I will share my templates.  I'm taking a Reading disabilities course during the first week of July.  I'm hoping to incorporate what I learn into this structure!

  •  I just finished taking a course on Assistive Technology Implementation from Portland State University.  The course was pretty good.  It made me analyze how we implement AT and how to review the AT plan.  We already use the SETT (Student, Environment, Task, Tool) framework to assign AT at my school but we need to collect more data to see if the AT we are implementing is actually making a difference.

  • I am going to graduate next spring with a MEd in Special Education!  I am so excited, but I'm unsure what I would like to do after the fact.  Time will tell hopefully!!
Happy Wednesday Everyone!

  1. I just found your blog through the linky party, and I'm looking forward to reading more about how you're using Assistive Technology and how you're doing RTI. I'm a new follower!
