Now that we have administered our assessments and collected data on our students we are ready to dig into design and implement our students' next steps. Using this information to craft responsive, small group instruction will make all the difference for our students.

On this day, we will study data to prioritize next steps for students to establish goal driven instruction. Lauren will support you in planning cycles of small group work which include both guided reading and strategy lessons to scaffold students to independence.

We will study our coaching moves and prompts to scaffold students to independence. In addition, we will study a variety of tools and resources to help make our teaching stick.
