    Open House event was a success.  Islam had made phone calls with parents prior to open house, the connections with families was extremely productive.  BEST Robotics solution seeking by the students and trouble shooting. 10th graders completed the first report under the new format, students did well.  100% of students are passing Geometry. Approximately 96 families attended open house.



    Announcements and News

    10th grade field trip to UHV, waiting on recruiter to confirm date for Fall.  Red Ribbon week approaching.  School calendar has the daily theme.  10th Grade has specific color=Gray


    Wolff-Romero ask for a Friday


    Essential Question: What do you want your students to learn? Chemistry, scientific notation, experimental, significant figures. Geometry, conditional statements and bi-conditional statements, hypothesis. ACDD, OHMS LAW, power efficiency and energy also review for first 3 week concepts.  AP World, empires, annotation, innovations, political systems, opportunities for students to present on topics.  Middle east, romans, Greeks, Mayans etc. 

    How do you know when they learn it?


    Review of Data: R360

    Predictions:  110 READING


    What data states?


    Next Steps:


    I predict the students had a lot of room for improvement.  They are writing information after reading without comprehension.  Students with word problem solution.  Scientific writing and reading struggles.  Solving problems difficulty with terms and vocabulary.  Finding context clues. 

    Attempts and desire to improve the reading and writing skills.  The students feel comfortable in asking for clarification.  Use of technology as a google doc to review peer reading and writing process.  They try to collaborate as a group to identify issues.  Note taking, practice with cornel notes and other writing of reading.

    46% are above benchmark for reading.  7% are in urgent intervention.   31 students need interventions at some level.  The intervention and urgent intervention.  The students on urgent intervention tend to be struggling in classroom setting.  Wonders: Patterns in reading comprehension in previous assessments or TSI.

    I wonder how many of these students completed the reading over the summer.  59% are in AP social studies courses.  Seriousness of assessment for a few students is questionable.  Discussion of the importance of the exam. 

    Step by Step how to make sense of information.  Professors have meet with students one on one to support learning concepts.  At times extend the time aides in think time.  Support student with Khan academy.  Conference with the students, remind of Saturday tutorial offering and afterschool.  Club intervention offerings.
