Hello again, Colleagues,

I have another question for you (another in a series, I suppose I should say).

If you are privy to the standardized test data in your school (and I 
hope that you insist that you be if you aren't), what are the most 
common deficits you are finding among your students and what grade 
level are you seeing that deficit?

For instance, in NY, the 5th grade teams I worked with this summer 
were seeing an inability to identify main idea and supporting details 
and to make effective use of graphic organizers.  Folks in NJ this 
month had several elementary grades unable to identify the "mood" of 
a piece of writing.  Again in NY, high school social studies students 
were struggling with several constructed response questions on the 
Regents (though I am not remembering the particular content of the questions).

Would you be willing to share those areas (anywhere in the curriculum 
at all grades) where your students are showing deficits?

I'll post a hit!
