Re-teaching
The teacher has just given Maeve her score on the last quiz she took. She notices that she missed both items on soil salinization. Also, the teacher wrote on her paper, “Maeve, you seem to be confused about this.” What should the teacher do to help her understand the concept?

Maeve is obviously confused about soil salinization, so writing it on her paper does nothing to help. The teacher should give individual guidance and ask Maeve to possibly stay for tutoring. She should ask Maeve to tell her everything she knows about soil salinization so that she can determine where Maeve is getting it wrong. Then the teacher should demonstrate and give examples of exemplar work samples so that Maeve has a clear understanding of what is expected of her. Finally, the teacher should give Maeve the same or similar items that were on the quiz, and see if she improves. The teacher could also pair Maeve with a student that got the 2 items right on the quiz and let them work through the items together to see where Maeve went wrong. The teacher could then give feedback and pinpoint the mistakes that Maeve is making.

I really like the fact that you suggested to show her what you (as the teacher) expected to see for an answer. This would give her a peer example of what is expected.

In addition to solution 1, the teacher could go through her entire classes papers and see who else may need the re-teach module for this section. The teacher could have a small group lesson on this topic with many examples that the teacher can walk the group through to give the support that they need to fill in the gap. Making sure to hit as many learning styles as necessary so the students have the greatest chance of retention.

I agree that looking at other assessments would be beneficial. Creating a small group would allow the students to be reintroduced to the topic, and form a new understanding based on the individual plan created for them. After small group teaching, students could then be reassessed and data could be compared to see any growth changes.

The teacher could look at the way the two questions were worded or the form the question was in. Maeve could have not understood the vocabulary within the question or been confused by the wording of the question. The teacher should verbally rephrase the questions to see what Maeve's response could be. By rephrasing the question you can determine if Maeve knows the information or needs to be re-taught the information.

In addition to re-teaching and reassessing the information presented to Maeve it is vital that the teacher reevaluate his or her content delivery method.
