Students will comprehend and appropriately use content-based vocabulary to justify their reasoning
in STAAR formatted questions and local or state mandated assessments.
During class time students are able to respond accurately to higher order thinking questions and
participate in classroom discussions however, when given a STAAR formatted question, they have
difficulty comprehending the material.
5.1(A) demonstrate safe practices and the use of safety equipment as described in the Texas Safety Standards during classroom and outdoor
investigations
5.2(A) describe, plan, and implement simple experimental investigations testing one variable
5.2(B) ask well-defined questions, formulate testable hypotheses, and select and use appropriate equipment and technology
5.2(E) demonstrate that repeated investigations may increase the reliability of results

Use your knowledge of prior students' performance and end-of-year expectations for students in previous, vertically aligned
courses to describe typical students in the class. You may wish to describe the average student (middle level or “typical”) first, then,
the highest performing student (“well above typical”), and the lowest performing student (“well below typical”) and finally,
complete the in-between levels (“above” and “below typical”).

a.
Who will be included in your SLO?
When choosing your class or classes, gather informal data about your students to determine which class or classes is/are most
representative of the cross-section of students that you teach.
Elementary classroom teachers: select your entire class.
Elementary departmentalized teachers or secondary teachers: identify the targeted class or classes (class, grade and subject).
b.
Match your current students to the descriptions in the Initial Student Skill profile.
i.
List the total number of students at each level in the right hand column above, and
ii.
Record the level for each individual student on the Student Growth Tracker.
iii.
Check here when both tasks are complete:
c.
What student work did you use to map students to the Initial Student Skill Profile?
Step 2: What do I think my students will be able to do?
Students will comprehend and appropriately use content-based vocabulary to justify their
reasoning in STAAR formatted questions and local or state mandated assessments.
Students will comprehend and appropriately use content-based vocabulary
to justify their reasoning in STAAR formatted questions and local or state
mandated assessments.
Students will comprehend and appropriately use content-based vocabulary, with
minimal help from the teacher, to justify their reasoning in STAAR formatted
questions and local or state mandated assessments most of the time.
Students will comprehend and appropriately use content-based vocabulary,
with assistance from the teacher, to justify their reasoning in local and state
mandated assessments some of the time.

with close supervision from the teacher, to justify their reasoning in local
and state mandated assessments, although not accurately.

STAAR formatted questions and local or state mandated assessments.
All 5th grade students
I used informal assessments, and Beginning of Year Assessment grades to see where students
stand academically.

a.
Use information about how students mapped to the Initial Student Skill Profile to describe how, as a whole, students are
expected to prog
ress. In other words, what are your expectations for what high, average, and low performers will be able
to do at the end of the course? Complete the Targeted Student Skill Profile below.
The profile should describe your expectations for students' performance at the end of the interval. For example, the
desc
ription at the middle level describes what you expect of the typical student at the end of the interval.

b.
Use available data on your current students (e.g., attendance, grades in relevant courses, early student work, prior
testing data, etc.
) along with each student's description on the Initial Student Skill Profile to establish a target for each
individual student cov
ered in the SLO. Record these targets on the Student Growth Tracker.
Check here when complete:
c.
What evidence will you use to establish students' skill levels at the end of the interval? Describe the measures to be
used and how th
ey are aligned with the skills identified in the SLO.
Step 3: What are my expectations for these students?

reasoning in STAAR formatted questions and local or state mandated assessments.

I will use a variety of technology based instruction and student led discussions. For high performing
students, I will use research based projects and have them use vocabulary on the TEKS being
covered. I will use Classkik, interactive quizzes, journal entries and small group instruction to keep
track of their progress. I will use CBAs and weekly tests to guide myself on where they are at.
