 The Senior Exit Portfolio Project (SEP) at West Salem High School was created to provide evidence that its graduates were career and college ready. The self-directed, active learning experience spans the entire senior year and includes the selection of an area of interest, a research paper, development of a project, maintenance of a portfolio of work and work artifacts, and a presentation of the research and project to a panel of community members.  Each student is assigned a mentor related to the field of study to help link the research to practical application. The mentor connection and the use of a community panel has encouraged deep community participation and investment in the educational process. The SEP also provides an opportunity for full staff collaboration, promoting vertical integration of learning standards across all grade levels and content areas.

 At Lake Superior Intermediate School, grade level teams meet weekly and quarterly to dig into student data. Each grade level created a data wall to monitor student progress. The data analysis process and discussions drive decision making about student learning and classroom instruction. High quality data is essential to determine which students need more practice and/or intervention/enrichment (PIE) on each priority standard for both ELA and Math. The teams use universal screening data, running records for reading, common formative assessments, and teacher observations to ensure multiple sources of data present a complete picture of student learning and guide instructional adjustments.Read more about these practices in the module.

In order to integrate Universal Design for Learning (UDL) at all levels, a series of "Try Its" (3-4 week periods to implement UDL strategy) were scheduled throughout the year with cohort groups of teachers to increase student engagement and reach more of their  students.    Following each try it period, the cohort team reviewed the resultant data.  After their first year, cohorts regrouped to discuss UDL practices and how they worked in the classroom. In year two, a second cohort was developed to follow the same path. Cohort 1 trained Cohort 2, and answered questions. Members of the two cohorts were then strategically mixed with other staff members to help them understand the UDL work and process.  Read more about these practices in the module.

ACP Goal Setting

Goal setting is powerful and critical life skill. Goals allow us to turn our vision of the future into our reality. Goals provide us short-term direction and long-term vision.

To set big life goals, we must first dream big and create a list of all the things we would like to see, do, and accomplish throughout our lifetime. From there, we can set small goals that are measurable and achievable. Then, we get to work!

Goals can be integrated into all areas of our life. We can strive to be more successful in our classes, faster on the court, or active every day. Goal setting is about making ourselves better, happier, and healthier.

For the rest of the school year, we are going to set goals related to our academic success, personal well-being, and career preparation. When we set our goals, we want to be sure that we are working towards something we want to ACHIEVE and simply make ourselves better. Self goals are in fact goals to better ourselves NOT the people around us. Remain true to you!
