Standards Used In My Action Research
During the two rounds of action research that I conducted my end goal was to see if student's comprehension of grade level text improved with the help of digital tools. Ultimately I was assessing the CCSS.ELALITERACY.RL.3.1 standard of,"Ask and answer questions to demonstrate understanding of a text, referring explicitly to the text as the basis for the answers."
I also used ISTE standards when creating the digital tools needed to implement my action research,
5a Use technology to create, adapt and personalize learning experiences that foster independent learning and accommodate learner differences and needs.
5b Design authentic learning activities that align with content area standards and use digital tools and resources to maximize active, deep learning.
5c Explore and apply instructional design principles to create innovative digital learning environments that engage and support learning.
Together teaching using the ISTE standards to drive the CCSS standards was the best way to increase comprehension for struggling readers.
