Black History Month Resources on Edcite

As classrooms celebrate Black History Month throughout the month of February, we wanted to share a collection of assignments created by teachers in our community. Incorporate these resources into your lessons to honor great leaders, writers, artists, athletes, and scientists and to help guide students through discussions about civil rights. These assignments can be used not only during Black History Month but year-round in your classroom.

Aggressive Monitoring: Analyzing and Responding to Real-Time Classroom Data

We began the “Data Series” blog posts emphasizing the importance of daily independent practice, then explored 5 concrete steps to ensure your lessons are aligned to state standards, and most recently the 3 types of meaningful data that will help increase results in your classroom. In the latest post, the second type of data discussed was daily classroom data: data that a teacher collects during the lesson in one class period. This type often helps determine who is on track for mastering the daily objective and who needs immediate remediation. The game-changing strategy used to collect data daily is where we will end our “Data Series” posts. Educators, allow me to introduce you to Aggressive Monitoring.
