It was great to see that in less than 6 months time, Students B (1.5 years), E,(1 year) and G (1.5 years) in my focus group had accelerated growth, Students A and C expected growth (6 months) and I was able to pinpoint some learning points to focus on specifically with Students D and F who did not make any progress. In order to move forward, I am going to work specifically with these two students to improve their ability to emphasise with others, especially with characters from their texts. It is my hope, that by providing many opportunities to discuss a character's feelings and infer why they are feeling a certain way will enable all the students, but primarily Students D and F to make that expected growth next term.
Our class also grew by new two students working at this level during Term 2 and those two students were not tested again since they had just arrived at PES a few weeks prior.
It is my intention to work with the 4 students who have yet to make progress and test them again before the end of Term 3. Hopefully, this testing will allow me to focus their learning more specifically to their individual needs.
