HIGH SCHOOL
4
Principles To Close The Gap
5
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
    readings to explain.
  • SOCIAL STUDIES - According to the article why did
    the United States become involved in Vietnam?
    Use information from the textbook to explain

10
Integration.
  • Health - Read page -- From your text book, write
    2 facts and 2 opinions about smoking.
  • Art - Describe 2 characteristics of geometric
    figures found on the painting.

11
Integration
  • Music - Read the 2 critiques of the concert. How
    were the 2 perceptions similar or different? Use
    details from the articles to support your answer.
  • ANY SUBJECT - What is the main idea of the
    paragraph? Use facts from the article to support
    your answer.

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
    reading and writing.

in reading?
  • Scored a level 3 or within 20 points of a level 3
    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
RESPONSIBILITIES CENTERED IN ONE LEADER
