How I set goals in the fall, and how it’s impacted my classroom culture
In my classroom, my kids know that I love data—and I’ve gotten them to love it, too. They know we’ll use it to set individual goals, and we’ll use it to track progress, and we’ll even use it to set stretch goals. And as I’ve shared their MAP data with them, I’ve also seen it influence my kids and how they support one another. So I’d like to share the process I use in the fall, as well as some of the classroom culture changes I’ve seen as a result.
Welcome to Show of Hands!
Welcome to our first issue of Show of Hands, a new quarterly newsletter from NWEA designed to support you and other teachers who use MAP.
Our goal is simple: support educators who use MAP data. Show of Hands is part of our commitment to bringing you timely, relevant ideas, tips, and strategies―as well as opportunities to connect with other educators.
¡Bienvenidos a MAP en español!
We know that nearly 80% of English learners in the US are growing up speaking Spanish—and as a teacher, if you’ve got Spanish-speaking students in your classroom, you’ve probably faced the question: How can I see the difference between what my students know in Spanish and what they can demonstrate in English?
Meet the Family Report
We know how important conferences with families are—so we set out to make sharing MAP Growth data with them easier. And we couldn’t have done it without your help.
We're excited to share an all-new report for conferences: the Family Report. It’s designed to both share student-specific data with families and put it in context for them.
