Summit Academy has chosen Fluency for this year's goal. Teachers are using Dibels to track this data. By the end of the year, 6th graders should be at 380 for their benchmark goal and most are already past that and beyond! Yippee!
As an LEA, all grade levels have picked their "prioritized standards" as the district calls them. We have selected standards based on using evidence to back up any and all arguments, answers, etc. We want students to gain a firm understanding of what thoroughly answering any question looks like both written and spoken. Along with that, students are working on communication and presentation skills. We have seen great growth and hope to see more.
