Hey everybody, my partner @alex and I have been working on a tool for teachers to track student progress against a set of skills identified by Dr. Janet Mort. The goal of her 25 years of research has been to get students to read at grade level by the end of second grade, and her success is overwhelming. For the past few years, she has been leading summits to describe her methods. The past 10 or so summits have had between 700 and 1000 teachers each, so her methodology is being widely adopted!
Until now, teachers had no way of digitally tracking the work against Dr. Mort’s tactics. With the launch of www.joyfulliteracy.com, they now can! The link will take you to her home page that has all sorts of info. If you want to check out the app itself, click the link called “Circle Charts Online” and register for a free trial.
Tell all your teacher friends about it!
