Responding to NCLB in Alaska: A Three-Pronged, Teacher-Focused Approach Yields Success
Sees, Jennifer
Odyssey: New Directions in Deaf Education, v13 p54-57 2012
At the beginning of the 2011-2012 school year, the Alaska State School for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing (ASSDHH) was informed that they had met Alaska's Annual Yearly Progress as required by No Child Left Behind (NCLB) for the first time ever. This was incredibly exciting and worth celebrating since teachers had invested so much "blood, sweat, and tears" over the course of their first year. In this article, the author, the professional development coach for ASSDHH, shares how this was accomplished through a research-based, three-pronged approach: (1) Infusion of classroom-based teaching and learning practices; (2) Insistence on individually tailored professional development; and (3) Implementation of student progress monitoring. (Contains 1 table and 4 resources.)
