Our newest member Mindee could use some feedback:
I am an Elementary FLES (Spanish) teacher and am a recent convert to TPRS. Totally sold, through and through. Love this blog. I have to do a Smart Goal (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, and Time-bound) as required by the State of Va. and every year it’s on everyone’s dreaded to dos list. You set a goal for a certain group of kids (i.e. students can describe 3 attributes of animals and habitats), you give a pretest, show your administrator your goal and test data…… you go through the year w/a variety of strategies to accomplish your goal, do a post test in the Spring. If you don’t meet your goal it affects your evaluation. Total BS.
Since I really love TPRS I’d love to do something related so I’m not just wasting my time. Any ideas for me? Has anyone done this before?
