How do I prove this work? What am I doing wrong?
So I have been working super hard at tracking learning goals and interleaving standards. Class is great students are engaged and seem to be learning. Unfortunately, my administrator and other teachers put a great amount of pressure on state testing. I just gave them a quarter assessment and many of my students scores went down since the start of the year. My methods seem new and unresearched to my admin. He wants me to stick to a textbook, direct instruction and follow the unit lessons day by day. How can I advocate for this way if students aren’t testing to show that it works? Feeling really discouraged. Help!
