Teams focus on 1 or 2 standards at a time, 2 – 3 days Students are re-shuffled, based on Blueprint Assessment data for the new focus standards Focus standards are most heavily weighted, lowest performing standards Teachers also consider standards that can be reviewed in a shorter period of time Language Conventions, Writing Strategies, Number Sense, Algebra & Functions
