Analyzing Student Learning

Are students learning what they’re supposed to learn?

Differentiating Follow-up

What are you doing differently for different learners?

Reflecting on Instructional Practices

Which practices are most effective?

Step One: Establish Student Achievement Goals Know how things are – then compare to how things ought to be Step Two: Identify Important Questions BEFORE seeking solutions or posing theories, develop a list of deep questions regarding why the current reality exists.
