Standard #1: Academic Results
Emily and I administered the New York State Regents Exam to our Spanish 3 students, which consisted of a listening, a reading, and a writing portion. I was very pleased with how the students did on the listening and reading portions of the exam. I knew that students need more practice with their writing skills, and the test reinforced that.
My plan for improving their writing skills is as follows: I will explore the FLTEACH listserv for writing ideas along with different teacher editions of textbooks that I have in my classroom. I will also ask some of the English teachers how they go about teaching writing. I will also make examples of what a good and bad writing sample look like, so that students have something to compare their writing to. I would also like to make rubrics for writing projects and have the students practice scoring different works.
For my artifact, I have included our test along with the data analysis for each of our classes.
