Third Grade Reading Guarantee Teacher Resources

The documentation below provides additional resources for Teachers for the Third Grade Reading Guarantee.

Teachers in Split Classrooms

Properly licensed teachers for students retained in third grade and placed in Grades 3-4 split classrooms - This guidance explains the various types of credentials that qualify an educator under the law to teach these split classes.

Formative Instructional Practices (FIP) Resources

Formative instructional practices (FIP) are the formal and informal ways that teachers and students gather and respond to evidence of learning. There are four core components of FIP: clear learning targets, collecting and documenting evidence, student ownership, and effective feedback. Research shows that integrating these components into daily practice can increase student learning and teacher effectiveness.
