- Classroom Quick Tips: Instruction, Assessment, and Time Management
Each 1-page document offers easily doable instructional, assessment, and classroom/time management strategies – offering general strategies, ELA-, and math-specific suggestions for implementation.
- Academic Strategies
Using the key concepts in the left-hand column, educators can complete a self-check for current instructional and assessment practices. After identifying areas of need, the right-hand column offers specific strategies/resources that may strengthen the selected concepts.
- Focus Documents
Supported by key PA Academic Standards, areas of high-level focus in content areas are identified and defined. Note: While all standards deserve a defined level of instruction, neglecting key concepts may result in learning gaps in student skill and understanding and may leave students unprepared for the challenges of a later grade.
