GoFormative assignments will be used to review the 1^{st}
10 benchmarks. It provides immediate
feedback. Students will work in pairs
to complete an average of 23 benchmarks a day with 100% accuracy.

Warm ups will be included in the HOW grade
GoFormative assignments will be worth 5 points each
Another quiz will be given over all 20 concepts to see if
they can improve their score from the first quiz over all 20. If score is better, then it will replace
the previous score. A goal will be set
and tracked.

Students will be working in small groups with me coming
around to help them. The amount of
work will be individualized for each kid, based on test data. Students who
have mastered certain objectives will be used in peer tutoring.

Warm ups will be included in the HOW grade
At the end of the week another quiz will be given over all
20 objectives. If the score is higher,
then it will replace the lower ones.

By week 8, most should have about 80% or more of the
topics mastered. Using test data, I
will see what else needs to be reviewed.
I am also going to have some enrichment problems for them to do. These are problems that use the objectives
they have learned, but apply them in a word problem to see if they can pull
out the information.

The day before the quiz we will play kahoot.
Some students will still be working with me, while others
will be doing some enrichment problems to try to expand on this 9 weeks
topic.

Warm ups will be included in the HOW grade
Another quiz will be given. Keep in mind the quizzes do progressively
get a little bit harder as we move through the 9 weeks. This is to keep it from being too easy for
those that pick it up really quickly.
Kahoot will be used for extra credit for the top 5 scores

Although this is the last 9 weeks with these 20 concepts,
they will reappear throughout the year.
Each 9 weeks takes them a step further or applies them
differently. This is why the 1^{st}
9 weeks is so important to get that foundation for the rest of the year.

Will be individualizing instruction using peer tutoring,
small group work, or other options to try to get the last few students up to
par.
If that isn’t needed, then we will do some enrichment problems.

Warm ups will be included in the HOW grade
Pardon quiz over all 20 objectives. The pardon quiz again will replace all
lower quiz scores
