I’m so fortunate to be working with educators in the Denver Public Schools again this year. I’m teaching a year-long course to help them understand how to use small group instruction to best meet the needs of their students. These teachers rock!

As part of their homework, teachers brought samples of ways they take notes and organize their assessment data. They use assessment notebooks of some kind and also share individual reading goals with their students. Teachers use these during independent reading and small group instruction.

They were gracious to share their ideas on my blog via these pictures. What I love is that the systems are personalized. Each teacher does what works best for her/him. Differentiation for teachers, too!

One teacher shares the assessment form she uses for reading. Each page holds notes for 4 different students.
