I went to a session with Jon Corippo. It's by Marlena Hebern and Jon Corippo. He's very high energy and a little bouncing all over the place, but, in the end, super useful. They have two books.

Classic mean girls

Like OPs, I would do what I can to cut off the other teacher. She is clearly afraid of the parent or part of the parent's clique. I've been the victim of a parent spreading lies to other parents, but...

when S falls behind, they want assessment-

I've noticed an upswing in parents wanting assessment, thinking an IEP will solve the issue of their children being behind.

Well, they never consider that ATTENDANCE has a huge effect on learning!

They do such damage to their children!

In an old Reader's Digest article, a child psychologist said that when parents jump in to solve things for kids, it sends the message that the parent thinks...

paper only?

Could it be to do a weekly repeated read on an ability level book?

Can it be electronic? MobyMax?

Time to withdraw

I agree with OPs. You should no longer subject yourself to this kind of behavior.

If you continue to feel obligated ('cause it's family), switch to an identical $ amount on generic gift cards. If...

Spiral "review"

Does using this program preclude you starting with some sort of spiral review or bell work?

I have a daily drill that I call review and have used it to sneak in direct instruction for years....

Keep evacuating

I'm so sorry you are dealing with this. It sounds exhausting.

It sounds like this student does not belong in gen ed. The other Ss are in danger. You are in danger.

Start involving the admin...

one-to-one tech

Our students have iPads, therefore, the rule is no water bottles on the desk. They must be on the floor. The only problem I can see with that is if you don't have carpet, they would make a lot of...

best part is TOPS

I loved AR, and I really miss it.

The best part for me was using the TOPS (quiz score report) to meet with the students.

I set goals individually, and met with each student to discuss them. ...

Recall for sense of accomplishment

Time for some old school mastery?

no reasearch that I've heard

I haven't heard about any research in that area.

However, I do wonder about more days just to spread out what we are currently trying to shove down their throats.

I'm also sure that plenty of...

P afraid of parents?

Ridiculous! Your comments are as positive as possible when trying to stay connected to reality.

It looks like P would be happier if you just lied, and every child is perfect.

Second TAOEP's suggestions

My district changes 403b "providers" frequently. Get all the information you can before proceeding.

If you don't have print copies of everything, get them.

One year private

I did one year at a private Christian school to get something other than subbing on my resume.

For me, there were some dramatic differences:

1. Class size- 25 changed to 36.
2. Three duties...

used to have it-miss it

I agree with LRRichardson. When I had AR, I had structures in place that made sure I met with students, that they had goals, and competition was injected.

1. Don't be die-hard/rigid about reading...

We have two solid weeks for Winter Break, no partial weeks. The time off always includes Christmas and New Year's Day.

Time on task

For me, running a program with small reading groups means that more of the students are not receiving instruction.

I tend to whole group teach, then circulate and provide individual attention. I...

Hard, but don't give up

I understand your sadness. I, too, left a school that I thought I would be at for my whole career. A Princ was doing things that I could just no longer tolerate. It was a murderously hard decision,...

electronic options

If they word process their writing, they could use Paper Rater ( Use just the free part of Paper Rater, and show an example.

As OPs mentioned, I would also pare down their focus...
