1. Accurate assessment of what really matters The quality of teacher–student interaction is directly tied to student learning. The CLASS™ tool assesses critical dimensions of teacher–student interaction that contribute to academic and social success, including positive and negative classroom climate, teacher sensitivity, language modeling, and behavior management. The CLASS™ manual clearly describes what to look for when observing each dimension, taking the guesswork out of classroom assessment.

CLASS

2. Better program planning and professional development Through brief, repeated observation and scoring cycles, the CLASS™ tool establishes an accurate picture of classroom interactions and clearly highlights areas of strength and areas for growth. Schools and whole districts can use the results of the CLASS™ tool to systematically strengthen their programs and plan professional development workshops that improve teachers’ knowledge and practices. (Professional development programs are offered through Teachstone; see www.teachstone.com.)

How

3. Ongoing monitoring and evaluation You can use the CLASS™ tool to observe teachers at regular intervals during the school year and give them direct feedback about their actual classroom practices. Giving teachers an objective, concrete measurement of their areas of strength and weakness helps them continue their successful practices with confidence—and target areas for improvement over the course of the year.

4. CLASS™ Training CLASS™ Observation Training is an essential prerequisite for accurate use of the tool. This two-day seminar gives you in-depth knowledge of the CLASS™ domains and dimensions and arms you with the knowledge you need to code classrooms using the CLASS™ tool. Introductory CLASS™ seminars and Train-the-Trainer programs are also available. Learn more at www.teachstone.com/training-programs.

ou don’t have to be in Texas to benefit from TPRI® and Tejas LEE®, two comprehensive systems for helping English- and Spanish-speaking students make real reading progress in K–3. Thousands of schools across the country use these two authentic, research-based systems to help teachers teach and help achieve better reading outcomes. Guiding teachers step-by-step through diagnostic assessment, targeted intervention, and effective progress monitoring, TPRI® and Tejas LEE® solve key challenges for everyone:

TPRI & TEJAS LEE

TEACHERS are empowered with everything they need to link assessment data with targeted interventions and solve their students’ reading problems.

STUDENTS who may be at risk for reading failure get individualized help before problems escalate. Assessment is quick and engaging, and intervention activities help students master reading skills they’ll need to excel in every subject.

SCHOOLS get a detailed overview on every student and classroom, so they’ll have the accurate data they need to make critical decisions about instruction and professional development.

What is Project SEARCH and how does it work? ®

Find out in this article from our Disabilities newsletter: It costs employers money to recruit, train, and retain good employees. They want workers who are dependable, well trained (and willing to be trained), who get along with others, and who have a good attitude. In cities and towns around the country, businesses are discovering prospective employees with these very qualities who have graduated from the Project SEARCH® High School Transition Program. Project SEARCH is a school-to-work program with a remarkable success rate for placing students with intellectual and developmental disabilities in paid employment that is both rewarding to them and valuable to their employers. The program has been so successful that it has grown from its original site in Cincinnati to over 200 sites across the United States and Canada, England, Scotland, and Australia.

EXCERPT

The origins of Project SEARCH Project SEARCH grew out of a search for a real-world solution to a real-world problem. Erin Riehle, then nursing director of Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Emergency Department, was frustrated by chronically high turnover and lackluster performance of personnel hired to stock examination room supply carts. Typically, the most readily available pool of candidates for this position consisted of undergraduates hoping to get into medical school, nursing students, and others who wanted to add hospital experience to their resumes. Although these were competent, bright people, they lacked any real interest in the job.
