Hello and Welcome, Teachers!
As part of our Annual Professional Performance Review (APPR), many of us are required to keep evidence binders of our student work. With all the new demands from the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), the upcoming Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) framework, Professional Learning Communities (PLCs), Student Learning Objectives (SLOs), and the host of other acronyms we need to keep track of, it’s no wonder that many teachers are feeling harried, frustrated, and bewildered.
This is the second year sharing my online Evidence Binder. For my 2012-2013 version, please go to Binders Full of Evidence (with no date afterward).
Sharing what works to meet the new standards may help alleviate the pressure, and so I will be sharing my evidence binder here online… actually, this IS my evidence binder! Activities and assessments that have worked for me may be modified to fit your own needs, and anything you are willing to share back will be greatly appreciated! I especially welcome cross-curricular work as a way to add the necessary informational texts to my repertoire.
This newest blog, Binders Full of Evidence 13-14, is a sequel to last year’s evidence binder at Binders Full of Evidence, and it is dedicated to all teachers as we share in the demands of meeting the Common Core State Standards. I will be sharing my own evidence binder online as a way to reach out to my fellow teachers, and I am very much looking forward to gleaning new ideas from them!
If you like what you read, please share!!
