Stealing an idea from project 365 I am going to try and add a thunk a day from the 18th of Jan onwards. Only from then because my thunk book is at work.
A thunk is something, a phrase or saying, that is designed to make your brain hurt – make you think. I will correctly reference the book when I get it in my hand.
So, lets begin on the 18th Jan – see you then.
So a new year starts and I just remember I’ve got you. Lets try and see if I can get you working really well this year and if I can get other teachers talking to each other, using this also.
And So 2013 Begins. . .
The Whole School Intervention aproach (WSI) conceptualises literacy and numeracy intervention within 3 layers.
Layer 1: WSI action at the intervention points of curriculum design, pedagogical practices and quality assessment that is responsive to patterns of underachievement in school data.
Layer 2: Targeted group interventions for particular cohorts who have not responded to the layer 1 intervention. Layer 2 interventions are designed to assist identified students in meeting age cohort expectations.
Layer 3: Intensive interventions (usually involving specialists) for students who have not responded to layers 1 and 2 interventions in meeting age cohort expectations.
