It's EOG Season!
The most wonderful time of the Year!

Resources for planning a focused and effective ELA EOG Remediation program.

Narrow the focus.

Use the Number of items by Standards (pgs. 4-6) document to determine how to focus these last few weeks of instructional time.  Begin remedial instruction on your school's standards with the lowest proficiency.  Target regular instruction in the same manner.  Teach all standards listed, do not skip instruction simply because there are a few questions. Reading Standard 1 and Language Standard 4a should be integrated into each lesson.

Look at your data again.  Which standards are the weakest? Which teacher was most successful in teaching those specific standards? What strategies, lessons and resources were used by the teacher? What needs to be re-taught to the entire class? What needs to be remediated with small groups of students?

Analyze your data.

Organize Remediation.

Suggestions for organizing for remediation:

  • Focus closely on instruction around the standard(s) that are the weakest at your school and will be assessed on the EOG.
  • Determine who will teach/plan a specific standard based on a teacher's proficiency with that standard, not just overall proficiency.
  • Organize students by standard and target instruction for those students.
  • Differentiate instruction based on the percentage of proficiency a student made on a standard. There are lessons that can be used for differentiation in the teacher-toolbox.
  • Set aside a time of day for remediation.
  • Develop a detailed, daily lesson plan that outlines who, what, when, where and how for instruction.
  • Determine how and who will monitor implementation of the remediation plan.

Select Remediation Resources.
