Well, Super Improvers is awesome!!!!!!! I introduced the basic idea in the computer lab while students were taking diagnostic tests and practicing a strategy that they showed a weakness in. I documented their initial score on the test on our board... They were soooo excited to report their new score. I was amazed at how focused they were on their own progress. Every one's score was on the board to be seen, but the focus was on personal improvement and I didn't even announce "Class, Super Improvers is all about beating your own record." It just happened naturally... I love that!
So, I was thinking after my last post on "R-E-F-R-E-S-H" - what new aspect do I need to add to my room. Duh...*brain hurting*, I need to incorporate my Super Improver wall. I have a "Wall of Fame" because my room is basketball themed, now it is the "Wall of Fame: Super Improvers". I am really excited about this aspect of WBT because many of my students are low performing and get discouraged about the difficulty of the work. This way, *sitting on the edge of my seat*, I can reward them for beating their own records!!!!
