Last year, as a school we had great success in raising some students progress with writing and mathematics. Teachers worked closely to raise the achievement of students who were just below their year level (From Year 3-8). Some of the strategies included:
● Learners (students) working with teachers to know their writing goals
● Learners highlighting their work where they had achieved their goal in their draft writing books
● Teachers spending extra time with learners in mathematics so they received math twice in one day
● Teams of teachers working closely to better understand how they can support these students, while also applying the same strategies to every student.
