Guess we're doing a lousy job!

Grrrr. Still recovering from our literacy PD. Apparently we specialists, Sped and ELL, are not working hard enough with our students, nor are the classroom teachers, to move "the needle forward" on the test scores of our non-developmentally, non- differentiated state assessment tests. It's all because we haven't taught our children good reading strategies - we aren't rigorous - we don't set high standards. Of course they didn't say which grades (elementary, high school, what???) were responsible for this data. It's all grades, they say.

Most of our sped and ELL students cannot read "grade level" materials.....but the stinkin' test isn't even written at grade level -- it's above grade level and extremely long and tiring.

It was so discouraging and maddening to hear this nonsense.

Thanks for listening!
