P-1, Beginning Proficiency, 7th Grade, Spanish
EVALUATOR: It’s great that lesson planning is coming along so more quickly, and that you’re feeling confident in your instruction. What have your assessments been showing when it comes to measurable student growth?
Teacher: Do you mean for my 7th grade Spanish 1 class, or for everyone?
EVALUATOR: Well, let’s start by talking about those 7th graders – since I know you’d had the most trouble investing them in your lessons. What does your data show?
Teacher: Here’s a sample page from my tracking system, showing this unit’s grades so far. Since almost all of my students have never taken any Spanish before at all, I’m OK with where they are. I mean, they’re not at mastery yet, so we’ll obviously do a lot of review. But they’re not bombing the tests, so they’re definitely learning something.Spanish 1 (7th Grade) – UNIT ONE

EVALUATOR: It’s true that you should be proud of the fact that some of your students are doing very well. I do notice, however, that a significant number – including Carrie, Grant, DeShawn, Harmony, Isaac, and Lee – are failing. Do you know what’s holding them back?
Teacher: I’d have to look at the tests themselves to know for sure, and unfortunately I already handed them back so the students could show their parents as well as study for a re-test. That said, I think it was the conversation vocabulary that was hardest this past week. Do you want to see a copy of the quiz?
EVALUATOR: Yes, that would be helpful. What specific objectives were you testing with this quiz?
Teacher: We had three overarching objectives. The first was “SWBAT use basic conversational vocabulary (greetings, introducing self and others, expressing simple emotions).” Another was “SWBAT identify the numeral for each Spanish number word 1-20 and generate the Spanish number word when given a numeral 0-20.” And last, “SWBAT list 3 Spanish-speaking countries with their geographical region.” Anyway, here’s the quiz…
