1st Principle
• Early Measurement of The Gap

6
2ND PRINCIPLE
• Repeated monitoring of student skills with
engaging instruction aimed at closing the gap.

7
ENGAGING INSTRUCTION
• Where excellence is the constant, with time and
method as the variable.

8
ENGAGING INSTRUCTION
• Special classes in intensified math, reading, and
writing for those students who need more time in
a subject to be successful.
• Integration of reading, writing and math, in all
classes.

9
Integration
• SCIENCE - What did the scientist discover about
-----? Use details and information from the
• SOCIAL STUDIES - According to the article why did
the United States become involved in Vietnam?
Use information from the textbook to explain

10
Integration.
2 facts and 2 opinions about smoking.

Integration
• Music - Read the 2 critiques of the concert. How
were the 2 perceptions similar or different? Use
• ANY SUBJECT - What is the main idea of the
paragraph? Use facts from the article to support

12
Integration of Math
• SOCIAL STUDIES Per capita populations, land
areas, products, proportions, geometric concepts
in historical structures,maps,grids,coordinates
• THE ARTS number sense and proportion, design,
scale models, time differences, ticket sales,
staging, construction

13
Integration of Math
• HEALTH AND PYSICAL EDUCATION graphs and tables,
time, distance, statistics, area,
perimeter,volume
• SCIENCE scientific notation, probability,
statistics and their interpretation, charts,
graphs, coordinates, proportion,equations, and
unit conversion

14
Integration of Math
• FOREIGN LANGUAGE mathematics vocabulary
• SCHOOL TO WORK/BUSINESS graphs, salary,
commission, percent, profits, time, measurement

15
ENGAGING INSTRUCTION
• Thinking questions provided daily.
• Special review sessions on mechanics, style and
importance of the FCAT

16
Engaging Instruction
• Special assistance through the use of computer
labs and other technology assets.
• Flexible groupings

17
FLEXIBLE GROUPINGS
• From elective classes (when convenient with
teacher and student)
• How- maximize computer use

18
Engaging Instruction
• Extended math class where writing is
integrated.
• Double language arts classes with integrated

from the middle school and 9th grade
• Who have completed one half of their Algebra 1b
or higher math requirement

23
Who are the students within 15 points of a level
3 in math?
• Score a level 3 or within 20 points of a level 3
from the middle school or ninth grade
• Who have completed one half of their Algebra 1b
or higher math requirement

24
