In my district, we have certain standards we are required to teach for a 3 week period. We then test the students over those standards. There are 2-3 questions per standard for a total of 6 questions per test. We have to then rank the students by percentages- either intervention, strategic, and passing. Then, for the next 3 weeks, we reteach to the intervention and strategic students the standards that they didn't get. We only have a 1/2 hour a day to reteach. 3 days a week are language arts and 2 days are math. I am really struggling with my kids in math. I wish my principal would let me do 3 days of math and 2 of language arts. Does anybody else do this kind of testing or reteaching? Any hints?
