Chapter III is an overview of the methods and procedures used to find if sight word instruction causes improvement in reading speed of elementary EFL students. This chapter explains
Additionally, the researcher reviewed the progress of the instructional strategies, as well as provided additional modeling when deemed necessary. Finally, the researcher compiled and analyzed all data points to determine if there was enough evidence to support the belief that employing elementary practices at the high school level had a positive impact of student engagement and achievement. It is important to the researcher that students are engaged and excelling academically on a daily basis. If the latter activities are occurring, teaching and learning are most assuredly taking place, and if teaching and learning are taking place, student success and achievement will be
School reform, which is a national phenomenon, will continue to effect early childhood education. After reading chapter eleven as a professional we must hold everyone to a very high standard and we must be consistent with who and how we hold each other accountable.

How teachers use results To check for understanding For grades, promotion. Table 2.1: Comparison of formative and summative assessment
The questionnaire will afford the study with basic data to build on. The information collected from the questionnaire will be used in identifying the acknowledgment of (6+1 Traits) in school in the first place. There will be interviews with school principal and some teachers/students who have applied the traits in the their classrooms to discuss the evaluation standards used to measure students' progress in writing.

Formulating a definition of effective teaching, Goe, Bell and Little (2008) evaluated various discussions in the recent literature as well as in policy documents, standards and reports. They concluded that effective teachers have high expectations for all students and help students learn; they contribute to positive academic, attitudinal, and social outcomes for all students; they use resources to plan and structure engaging learning opportunities; they contribute to the development of classrooms and schools that value diversity and civic-mindedness; and, they collaborate with other teachers, administrators, parents, and education professionals to ensure student success. Teaching effectiveness can be understood by studying the models of instruction
It is human nature to inquire and question everything, children are no different. By offering the children a variety of different ways to learn I am able to help them meet their goals and encourage them to help/teach their peers. Continuing down the childhood professional career path I have found support in a variety of shapes and forms. Through the support of parents and fellow teachers I was able to continue my education in the childcare field. Creating those relationships was vital to my future and without my dedication to professionalism I would not have been able to create them.
Scaffolding, according to Abbott, who is the editor of The Glossary of Educational Reform, is a variety of techniques used to help a student or students to move on at the proper or excelled pace for stronger and deeper understanding and having greater independence of the learning process. In short scaffolding has been and continues to be a gigantic impact and wise move made in the school system and by teachers who truly care about their students go to infinity and beyond in their learning and education. Scaffolding is very closely related to Vygotsky’s ZPD which stands for Zone of Proximal Development Santrock (2011). The ZPD shows the range of ability, skills and other tasks that the child, children, or students can perform on their own without out an adult or a guide by the student’s side to help them Santrock (2011). In this case this is will be the classroom and the students and how well they can perform what is taught to them, if they can understand will little to no help and even tested what the classroom grades would look like.
Given the large diversity of students in classrooms today; it is imperative that teachers learn how to become diverse educators through the techniques and implications they use in their practices. "Diverse responsive teaching (DRT) has emerged as an important approach to the challenges of classroom diversity…DRT also promotes mutual respect among class members and provides valuable lessons for life by empowering students with accurate information about diversity" (Price, 2019, pgs. xv-xvi). To become an effective teacher, a person must possess numerous qualities: creating an environment for learning, helping students develop understanding, extending and applying knowledge, and diverse responsive teaching; to name a few (Nine Strategies for
The APA Code of Ethics has ten (10) enforceable Standards that assist practitioners in their assessment and treatment of patients and provide a guide for behavior and professional conduct.

1. What are some important steps in interpreting data from high stakes assessments? In order to make assessment data useful teachers must understand what information is being reported and determine if additional information is necessary to understand student performance. Specifically, for assessment results for students with disabilities, teachers would have to identify what accommodations were being used.
