Ms. Vickers, a middle school ELA teacher at Manatee Charter School, is promoting Student Ownership of Data! The learners completed an in-class activity where they were asked to identify their assignment grades thus far in their journals. They also recorded whether it was a practice or mastery grade. Then, they identified what standard each assignment was addressing and marked in green whether or not they mastered the standard (80% higher). They are expected to keep up with their journals as the year goes on and to monitor the classroom data on the NWEA charts. This assignment helps students with awareness, ownership, and understanding of coursework and grades while promoting independence and responsibility. Our Manta-Rays at MCS are being proactive!
