What Effective Teachers Do to Educate
All Students: Making Adequate Yearly Progress
for Students in Subgroups

As a result of No Child Left Behind (NCLB), teachers need to study and address the achievement of
all

students. All
students means that teachers need to examine not only the aggregate

achievement of their students but also students
who are part of the following subgroups: economically disadvantaged, English Language Learners (ELL), ethnic
minorities or receive special education services. This session will focus on how Adequate Yearly
Progress (AYP) is
determined and the issues around AYP and a school's Report Card.


This session will explore the characteristics and educational needs of students in each of the subgroups. What do
schools and teachers need to do to improve the achieveme
nt of students in these various groups? What do teachers
need to do differently? How do schools need to change in order to involve these families in the education of their
children?


The status of AYP for schools in Macomb County will be shared with the p
articipants. Participants will examine
schools represented by large numbers of students in the various subgroups but are making AYP. The characteristics
of these schools and how they are making a difference will be discussed.

Finale: Maintaining Professional and
Respectful Teacher/Student Relationships

(Middle/Secondary)

The teacher
-
student relationship is a critical aspect to students' success in the secondary level classroom. Much
research and development has gone into tracking student achievement data and compa
ring student performance to
state standards and national norms. However, successful classroom teachers recognize that students are most
concerned with being embarrassed and fearing failure. Observe for a moment a large group of students in a school
setting

and it is easy to see that their acceptance by peers far outweighs any letter grade from a teacher.


This session focuses on the need for teachers to manage the interpersonal climate of their classrooms as much as all
other aspects of their teaching. Stud
ent learning is most productive when teachers focus on relationships and not
procedures.

Dr. Robert Livernois
