SamTastic Weekly Tip: 12/5/16 - Welcome to a new month!

Welcome to a new month!

Take a look at November. Open your Dashboard and do/ask the following:

1. Double click on November, the green bar.

2. Now you see a lot of colors that detail what you did each day in November by descriptor.

3. Hover your cursor over a color and it will reveal the descriptor.

4. Is there a relationship between your four kinds of observation and three kinds of feedback?

5. What patterns do you see?

6. Was your instructional time for the month of November greater than your baseline?

7. Was your instructional time for the month of November greater than your goal?


Taking time to look at last month can up your game this month. Your data tells a story. Take time to read and talk about it during your SAM Daily Meeting.
