The 5 x 8 Card
The 5X8 Card is an efficient tool to facilitate the observation of what students are saying and doing in classrooms that reveals their underlying mathematical thinking.
Content-area Literacy Survey
SERP launched the Carnegie Content Area Literacy Survey (CALS) project to promote educators’ knowledge of adolescent literacy learning. The teacher and student surveys provided here are designed to allow school and district leaders to take the pulse of their school literacy community and to design a strategic response to the calls for increased attention to literacy in the content areas.
Internal Coherence Assessment and Protocol
The ICAP grows out of more than a decade of research on school improvement and accountability, and, using well-tested and -documented survey items and observational protocols from the research, creates a way for system-level and school-level leaders to create a common body of data for the support of school improvement.
RISE Reading Assessment
The RISE (Reading Inventory and Scholastic Evaluation) is a computer-administered diagnostic reading assessment for grades 4-9, which takes approximately one hour to complete. It looks at specific components of reading–such as word recognition and decoding or vocabulary–that may be impacting students’ success.
Sense-making in Mathematics
This website is a preliminary synthesis of the conversations we have had and the work we have done over the years. The work is ongoing; in particular the diagnostic lessons are in an active stage of development. We hope that others who work with middle school students will enjoy exploring the work we have done together.
Word Generation is a research-based vocabulary program for middle school students designed to teach words through language arts, math, science, and social studies classes. The program employs several strategies to ensure that students learn words in a variety of contexts.
