IEP4U.COM has over 4000  Goals and Objectives (IEP-ITP) each with changeable benchmarks. The Idea Statements are spread out over seven subjects (Domains) an... Teachers, parents and students can now access objectives directly from this Web Site. Input key words, phrases, or test names in the search engine to find just the correct objectives for your students needs. Copy and paste any information you want, then modify the objectives (examples) to exactly describe the needs of your students. The kid section will give your students personal input to write their own objectives (with your help) and to play some interesting games as well.

This information is is designed to help you with the daunting task of writing proper IEP's  The data within this web site was written to correlate with the unique characteristics of various formal assessments. Since assessment is essential for the development of the IEP, specific questions were evaluated and idea statements written based upon those questions. Searching the data for idea statements by assessment will enable teachers to plan lessons or web quests based upon how the student scored on the assessment.

Students can pick their own IEP using Pictures!

Hi Ashley,
I am so glad to hear that the condensed lessons are helpful. I have attached the first volumn of Unit 2- Following Characters into Meaning. The lessons for the second part of this unit will be finished soon!

These lessons teach to big ideas, and you may need to add more mini-lessons that are pertinent to what your class needs. You may have to intermingle more skill based, or procedural lessons, depending on where your class is with RW.

Readers' Workshop is a practice that allows students to "own" their work. The attached lessons are a condensed version of Unit 1- Building a Reading Life:

One area the English teachers discussed was increasing independent reading.

An article that offers new paradigms for reading in secondary English:
7. Farewell to Farewell to Arm.pdf

The lists of what selections of the reading and writing that are currently being used in 6-12 is below. English 11 & 12 are not yet categorized by genre or difficulty level. More to be done....

I have been working with teachers on Readers' Workshop all summer and there are some fabulous links on Heinemann's site that will help teachers who are trying to implement this practice. This link will take you to sample videos outlining the practice.

This link is Lucy Calkins discuss the Reading Workshop!
