GPS + CAPs=whole group instruction and assessment CAPS=individual instruction and assessment GPS + CAPS =SUCCESS IN CLASS Math of Life

School + work = + effort = Career + responsibility = CAPs

A CAP is a mini-student lesson plan that allows the student to learn and grow at his/her own pace. A CAP also allows self assessment and teacher evaluation through assigned activities. A CAP helps the students to break down assignments and get a better understanding of the lesson, through

repetition and pacing. Georgia Performance Standards What are the Georgia Performance Standards? The performance standards provide clear expectations for instruction, assessment, and student work.

They define the level of work that demonstrates achievement of the standards, enabling a teacher to know how good is good enough. They allow our teachers to work together and set goals for us. Georgia Performance Standards CONT.

The Performance Standards will allow our teachers to ask three essential questions: What do we want our students to learn? How will we know when each student has learned it? How will we respond when a student experiences difficulty?

Direct Instruction At the beginning of each class period, the teacher will give a review of the previous day and a brief introduction of the day's lesson . Our teachers will then teach standards based lessons from the internet that have been written by our teachers for us.

Whole Group Lessons Looking to the Future We will be expected to participate every day in class discussions as well as assignments. We will receive points for our participation! We will be monitored and evaluated monthly on behavior, academics, and willingness to move forward.

And when we graduate we can work as teacher assistants to help our peers. When we (students) fulfill these requirements we will be rewarded accordingly. Bringing DJJ into the 21 Century

st We will now have more resources other than just text books and CAPs. We will be able to participate in interactive lessons on computers, such as essays, articles, science experiments, voting and grammar corrections exercises.

And our teachers will now have more advanced tools to aid them in teaching our lessons. Think, Think, Think about it!

Whos words are these? "The true test of the American ideal is whether we're able to recognize our failings and then rise together to meet the challenges of our time. Whether we allow ourselves to be shaped by events and history, or whether we act to shape them. Whether chance of birth or circumstance decides life's big winners and losers, or whether

we build a community where, at the very least, everyone has a chance to work hard, get ahead, and reach their dreams. Answer 44th President of the United States of America, Barack Obama

Mediocre Being of no special quality or type: average, common, commonplace, cut and dried, indifferent, plain, ordinary, regular, okay, existing. Question: Why was Ghandi

considered a mediocre person during his school days? Nonchalant Not easily excited, even under pressure; calm. Collected, coolheaded, detached, even, eventempered, imperturbable, unruffled.

Question: Do you consider your attitude toward school work nonchalant? Noncommittal Tending to keep ones thoughts and emotions to ones self: controlled, inhibited, reserved

restrained, self-controlled. Question: Are you noncommittal towards your teachers and peers? Why? REMEMBER GROWING OLDER IS

MANDATORY. GROWING UP IS OPTIONAL. We make a Living by what we get. We make a Life by what we give.
