Course Description

This session is targeted for teachers of grades 4 and up. The session focuses on using Milestones literacy/competency data to differentiate instruction. This session is not just a “point & click” demonstration, but rather a “WHY” & “WHAT” the data can be used for. This session stresses why the Lexile data within SLDS is important to establish literacy strategies. The trainer will model for the attendees how to identify students that struggle with reading comprehension. To help support differentiated instruction, this session focuses on the State Assessment Classroom Performance (SACP or differentiation tool). The trainer will model for the attendees how to identify students’ performance on state assessments (EOG & EOC). The session will allow ample time for hands-on participation by the attendees. Teachers will be able to drill down to the domain level performance inside of the SACP. With that data on hand, teachers will be able to differentiate instruction for all of their students.  

The session will allow ample time for hands-on participation by the attendees. 

Please bring a charged laptop or other device that can be used to access SLDS and the login and password used to access SLDS. If you do not have a login and password, please contact the person in your district or organization who sets these up.  Prerequisite: “Data Overview” training.

PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING CANCELLATION POLICY BEFORE YOU REGISTER!

Metro RESA makes every effort to provide high quality professional learning experiences at low costs to teachers in the Metro Atlanta area. Because we often have to pay instructors, rental fees for locations, and for materials, we must make decisions at least two weeks in advance about cancellation of classes when we do not have enough registrants.

Therefore, our cancellation/no show policy is as follows:

  • If you choose PERSONAL PAY as your payment method: You must use a credit card to complete your registration for all classes with Metro RESA.  We will happily issue a refund for any class as long as you notify us that you need to cancel AT LEAST TWO WEEKS PRIOR TO THE DATE OF THE CLASS.  You will be refunded via the same method of payment within two business weeks.
  • If you choose SCHOOL PAY as your payment method: Your school will be notified of all no-shows and invoiced for no-shows and/or cancellations made less than two weeks prior to class.  
  • If you choose DISTRICT PAY as your payment method: Your district will be notified of all no-shows and invoiced for no-shows and/or cancellations made less than two weeks prior to class.

THIS POLICY APPLIES TO ALL METRO RESA CLASSES EXCEPT GEORGIA TAPP, ALTERNATIVE CERTIFICATION CLASSES AND ANY TRIPS.

Refunds and reimbursements are not transferable to other classes. Refunds for cancellations (if the participant cancels at least two weeks prior to class OR if Metro RESA cancels the class) will be processed within two business weeks of the date of the course.
