Thanks to Michael Matos from Albany Park Community Center and a current participant in the Special Learning Needs Institute for sharing the following. When assisting students, Michael uses guiding questions and the framework for SMART student learning goals:
1. What do we observe in the examples of student work? What patterns do we notice?
2. What can we infer about our students' strengths and challenges?
3. Which challenge shall we address?
Thanks for sharing these guiding questions as we work through assisting our students individually as equal partners and co-investigators in their learning!
