1. Balance Prerequisite Skills with Grade-Level Instruction
This fall, teachers will be facing more students below grade level than ever before, and an even greater diversity of strengths and needs. While grade-level instruction is necessary to be proficient, we know students must have the necessary prerequisite skills to be successful. So how do you balance both?
i-Ready’s new Prerequisites report for Mathematics and instructional resources for English Language Arts are designed to help teachers be precise and focus efforts on the most critical skills. Teachers will be guided to which prerequisite skills to focus on so they can make one combined strategy to address both skill recovery and grade-level instruction.
