My name is Liza, and I am a 4th grade inclusion teacher. My focus subjects are language arts and social studies.
Have any of you had - what you believed to be - an awsome year only to recieve horrible state scores? I really thought my students were coming along very well. They were reading and utilizing reading strategies. Even my special ed students seemed to be improving. From September to June, the number of my students that read BELOW grade level (DRA test) decreased from 16 to 6. I could hardly believe that only 8:24 students past the language arts section of thir standardized tests.
