I was so fortunate to have Lynne’s assistance with a struggling section of an on-level history class. While the students were completing nightly assignments and generally engaged in class, they were not seeing results on assessments. Lynne helped me by assisting my re-assignment of seats so that partner work would be more rigorously completed. Even more, she suggested I reconsider my plan to do end-of-unit concept mapping in a way that would integrate concept-mapping periodically throughout the unit. Once I did these two things, nearly every single student saw improved performance on assessments, in turn, becoming more confident in themselves and even more engaged in class.
