As a teacher, it can be hard to watch a student struggle in your class. But, with positive words of encouragement and affirmation, you can help all students succeed.
At Edmentum, we’ve recently started offering educators the option to pilot our programs as part of our commitment to be a true partner. Basically, pilots offer schools and districts the chance to fully implement our Courseware, Study Island, or Exact Path online programs for up to an entire school year at no charge outside of the cost of training sessions.
Decades before educators were familiar with the term “social and emotional learning (SEL),” Fred Rogers was teaching them (or in some cases, their parents) SEL lessons that would turn out to be timeless. The world has become faster-paced and more complicated, which means that today’s students are in dire need of the caring, understanding, and inclusiveness found in Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood.
Every teacher has those days that just don’t go as planned. But, it’s important to remember why you got involved in teaching in the first place and remind yourself of what inspires you to come back to the classroom every day. We recently asked educators on our Facebook page to share their “why” with us. What draws them to the classroom, even after a difficult day? Check out a few of their responses.
Edmentum is excited to announce that we’ve expanded our partnership with MetaMetrics, the creator of the Quantile® Framework for Mathematics, in order to provide Quantile measures as an output from our Exact Path adaptive diagnostic assessments. When K–8 students complete their math assessments, the program will not only be able to pinpoint each student’s instructional level, strengths, and needs to provide a scale score and measure of academic growth, but it will also provide educators with a Quantile measure and associated range.
Every teacher is in favor of tools that can help students succeed. Yet, many districts and administrators fail to make that case to the rank and file when adopting new education technology. Instead, they either mandate that the product be used and encroach on the teachers’ autonomy or make a short announcement about the new tool with little to no instruction on how it works, which means few, if any, teachers are using it later in the school year. Here are some ways to avoid either scenario and make sure that you get the most return on your investment.
At Edmentum, we are so excited to share that we have partnered with Renaissance® to offer a customized integration designed to help kick-start learning for your students. If you’re currently using your Renaissance assessment results to benchmark learning or monitor student progress, an Exact Path integration can help offer that next step by turning your data into action.
