GOAL Digger Norms

Come prepared with data. Preparedness!

Positive Attitude with an open mindset

If you have a complaint, bring a solution

Positive feedback for students. Grow and a Glow

Take Ownership of your subject

What data do we need to look at to be successful?

What does your data tell us about your subject? (Beacons, CFA’s, etc..)

What questions are students missing and getting right?

**School Improvement Plan-**What is our FOCUS?

Lee County Middle School East Campus will improve teaching and learning practices during the '22-'23 school year to increase the percentage of proficient and distinguished learners on the Ga Milestones Assessment by 3% in every subject area.

Lee County Middle School East Campus will reduce the percentage of ODRs due to disrespect by 3%.

**GOAL Diggers Reminders**We are much too complacent, and we don't even know it.” Effective systems act with a sense of urgency for their outcomes and success.

What outcomes are we looking for from each subject?

Are you making an impact on your subject across the school? If so, how do you know?

How are we looking at the data, and using the data to pull small groups of students?

Why do we monitor a problem if we do not fix it?

**School Data**Universal Screeners- No Data until around Christmas.

Small Group Data from Data Teaming- No Data at this time

ELA

What does the data say about tests we have taken so far? CFAs, How often are you pulling small groups? What data do you use to determine your small groups? Success Criteria?Do your assessments reflect the DOK weights as outlined on the GMAS? What do we need to change?

**6th Grade: Elements of Plot: Students have been reading and analyzing short stories in small groups, short stories based on Lexile levels and student interest. R. Thompson 67% mastery and Meadows 70% mastery on Elements of Plot Assessment (DOK 2-3 questions)**

**7th Grade: Beacon Research Testlet: Revisit research skills to aid students in support needed and near target using small groups.**

**Harrell- 50% prepared, 47% near target, 2% support needed (sped)**

**Reynolds- 17% prepared, 59% near target, 24% support needed (6 sped, 3 esol, 6 gen ed)**

**Manville- 11% prepared, 72% near target, 17% support needed (12 gen ed)**

**8th Grade: Students have been working on RL4- determining the meaning of words and phrases. Students seem to have a misconception of connotation and relationships between words. Misconception between idioms and euphemism.** **King 31% mastery and S.Thompson 42% mastery.** **Both teachers are using this data to assign students practice in Progress Learning over the top 3 standards that each student scored below mastery for one-on-one remediation.**

Math

What percentage of students have mastery? What is each teacher's proficiency/mastery?

What are the common misconceptions?

What are you going to do moving forward?

What do we need to change?

6th grade: Last weekly quiz which is a combination of what students are currently learning and the spiral review homework - Collins 64.6% mastery and Foor 79.1% mastery. Common misconceptions include: identifying independent and dependent variables, finding the interquartile range, and writing inequalities from number lines. To correct these mistakes, teachers re-opened the quiz for students to make corrections. Mrs. Foor also covered the topics in her tutoring class and both teachers will reteach topics as they arise on Spiral Review HW.

7th grade: Ratios & Proportional Relationships Unit Test Newsome 52.5%, Quesada 61.4%, Eubanks 35.4% mastery. Common misconceptions included calculating Simple Interest and multistep percent problems. For the simple interest problem, students forgot to multiply by the time, which caused them to miss both parts of the question. For multistep percents, students struggle with following every step. For example, the question asked students to first calculate discount and then calculate the new price after tax. If students miss a single part of the steps, their answer will be incorrect. To help with these misconceptions, teachers all review the questions in class and did test corrections for a grade. Geometry CFA 1 (Cross Sections, Triangles, and Scale Factor) Newsome had 88.1%, Quesada had 63.2%, and Eubanks had 75.4% mastery. Common misconceptions with this CFA was first with scale factor word problems. Students had to set up a proportion and cross multiply and solve. Students did not set up the proportion correctly, so the work and answer were incorrect. The second misconception was the triangle inequality theorem. Students were supposed to add the two smallest sides and see if the sum was greater than the third side. Students however, added the first two side lengths given in stead of the smallest sides, causing them to select the wrong answer. Teachers reviewed these errors in Do Nows and will address them again later in the year with GMAS Do Nows which are sample test items from the GMAS Study Guides.

8th Grade: I’m still waiting on their data as of 2/16/2023 at 10:15am.

Do your assessments reflect the DOK weights as outlined on the GMAS? Analysis-see their weaknesses. Give the same essay back and revisit. Train and do better work. Small groups and then move on. What do we need to change?
