Data

In education, information speaks volumes. Data analysis can provide an overview of what students know, of what they should know, and what can be done to meet their academic needs. With proper analysis and interpretation of data, teachers can make informed decisions that positively affect student outcomes. In this article, we will discuss how to make data-based decisions to inform your instruction.

Data

Data is important, and it is everywhere. Teachers collect all sorts of information about students. These data can inform and influence teachers how to teach, what to review, and what to adjust. Yet, some teachers may still not be aware of how to get data and how to use it. In this article, we will answer these questions: Where can you find data? And why is it important to use data in your classroom?

How to Increase Student Engagement in the Classroom

Student engagement involves activities that can generate high-quality learning. If students are not engaged, they are not paying attention to the lesson and their minds are wandering off, losing valuable learning time as a result. To address this problem, teachers should adopt innovative ways to promote student engagement.

Instructional Practices for English Language Learners

Reviewing instructional practices for English Language Learners can help move the entire school toward a comprehensive and culturally responsive approach. Because of the increasing dropout rates among EL students, educators are putting a larger focus on ELL programs that get students to speak and write English in authentic academic contexts.

5 Tips on How to Improve Student Achievement

Improving student achievement is one of the main goals of all teachers. Student achievement measures the academic content a student learns over a period of time. Test scores are commonly used to measure student achievement. However, if you want a more holistic perspective, a student’s character, skills, and ability to solve real-world problems should also be taken into consideration.

Teachers

There are teachers, and there are great teachers. Notice the difference between the two phrases – the word “great.” It’s the job of a teacher to make knowledge accessible to all students. Educators base their practice on the belief that all their students can learn and meet expectations.

Curriculum & Instruction

Response to Intervention (RTI) is an approach that provides early and systematic support to students with learning and behavioral needs. Students who are underperforming are given interventions at increasing levels of intensity to accelerate the rate of learning. INcompassing Education can help implement RTI in your school by providing high-quality professional development and educational consulting.
