How Using the Right Data Changed Instruction and Improved Title I Students’ Reading Scores
A Title 1 teacher and a national reading expert show how data from 2 new assessments at a MD school drove powerful instructional changes for Title I students in grades 1–4. Even the lowest scoring students’ reading comprehension scores improved remarkably over a school year. The session includes descriptions of:

•Assessments that are quickly administered and provide data for planning instruction

•Data for actual Title I students that show improved fluency, accuracy, decoding, and phonological awareness

•How data drove changes in instruction to explicitly target students’ instructional needs.

Presenters lead an analysis of data and outline a lesson plan for a Title I student. Participants leave with copies of the 2 new assessments and an outline of the steps the school took to achieve reading success for their Title I students.

Requested time: 2 hrs
