The teacher assesses student learning in multiple ways in order to
monitor student learning, assist students in understanding their
progress, and report student progress.
Justification: In my classroom, students use spelling journals as a place to record their spelling previews and any spelling homework. Throughout each week, I check in with each journal to monitor the students' work and provide feedback. In the beginning of the year, students would often submit lack luster paragraphs, missing several parts of the directions given orally. This trend indicated to me that students needed a direction slip to refer to, providing students with assistance in understanding their task. Using spelling journals, enables me to provide students with immediate feedback on their work, as well as monitor student learning. In my evidence below, the two images of a student's spelling journal represents what I do in each journal; I provide feedback of whether the student completed the task, ask questions concerning their writing, and check their homework for an understanding of the concepts practiced. Below, this student displayed a misunderstanding of adding the suffix "-able" to "adore" to form the word "adorable." Because of this, I made sure to take note of his error and watch for similar patterns among other students.Evidence:
