Online Submission, Paper presented at the Texas Region VII Curriculum Conference, Kilgore, Texas, June 11-12, 2014
The document is from a presentation at the Texas Region VII 2014 Curriculum Conference. The study examined the effects of a three-tiered high school program designed to increase student achievement and Texas end-of-course (EOC) TAKS and STAAR chemistry scores. The student sample (n = 625) consisted 75% high school sophomores and 25% high school juniors. EOC test results showed the presenter's students (on-level, inclusion (IN) special education, limited English proficiency (LEP), economically disadvantaged (EDS), and 504 monitored) scored yearly in the 90% passing range. From 2008 to the present, results indicated that the students made significant academic progress. The three-tiered program components were based on school culture findings, productive classroom management research, and classroom programs and strategies. This program will also apply to 6-12 math and social studies classes. See the document for details about the program. The document's appendix includes: KTBB Article, Tyler ISD Mission Statement, Additional Information about Students, The CFK Ltd. School Climate Profile, TAKS (to STAAR) Information, Failure Intervention Plan, Scantron Form (Decoding EOC Tests), Student/Teacher Information and Article Examples.
