Student Learning Goal: Oral Reading Fluency

2017-2018 Student Learning Goal

Part 1: Analysis of Student Learning, Growth, and Achievement

Teaching Second grade, I focus on reading fluency through all areas of the curriculum with my students. My students will be given ample opportunities to learn and use skills necessary to increase performance on Oral Reading Fluency benchmark. I will work with my grade level counterpart to ensure that we are creating lessons that target the components Oral Reading Fluency.

Strengths: The Fall DIBELS Benchmark indicates that 56% of my students scored in the green (at or above grade level).

Concerns: The Fall DIBELS Benchmark indicates that 22% scored yellow (below grade level), and another 22% scored well below grade level.

Part 2: Assessment of Practice against Performance Standards

Strengths: I work well with others, and consider myself a team player. I provide differentiated instruction based on my students’ educational levels and needs. I embrace new teaching methods whenever possible to better my students’ educational experiences. I am willing to consider new and different methods and ideas based on my students needs.

High Priority Concerns:

  • Teaching students with a broad range of knowledge.
  • Developing and working with students to improve their overall Oral Reading Fluency.
  • Teaching students to use the fluency centers in pairs.
  • Teaching students to identify and say our High Frequency words with automaticity.
  • Differentiate instruction for all learners due to a wide range of skills.

Student Learning Goal

Students will be expected to increase their Oral Reading Fluency from the yellow (below average <36), to the green (average >87). This means each student will have an ambitious Oral Reading Fluency Goal to achieve.

Student Learning Goal(s): Planned Activities

Action:

  1. Provide students with tools ( i.e. fluency practice centers, electronic and non-electronic reading interventions, High Frequency word cards).
  2. Will discuss strategies with other grade level team members.
  3. Align lesson plans to meet the standards of the appropriate instructional level on district rubric as reflected in plan book.
  4. Assign a variety of fluency experts throughout each unit that will vary in length and instructional time.
  5. Analyze data from Bi-Weekly ORF assessments.
  6. Develop and implement grade appropriate lessons focusing on fluency.

Supports

  1. Our ELA Reading program also provides paper and electronic resources such as leveled readers, samples, lesson plans and visuals including graphic organizer, running records, and lists of HFW.
  2. The Building Administrators, Reading Teacher, Special Education Teacher, or other grade level ELA teachers within the school will schedule time, as available, to conduct feedback sessions with teams to reflect on student progress made during the 2017-2018 school year.
