Incoming 7th grade Registration


									Incoming 7th & 8th grade

   Roach Middle School
      Spring 2011
Where we are now?
 6th PAP Math is a compaction of all the 6th
 and 7th grade math TEKS.
 6th grade is a transition year (elementary to
 middle school) with several new math
 concepts taught
 7th grade PAP is actually 8th grade on-level

Can you have true rigor in an advanced course
when you teach two years of content in 180
days of instruction?
Where we are now?
 BIG PROBLEM: Once you leave the PAP tract in
 6th grade it is almost impossible to get back on it
 due to curriculum gaps

 BIG PROBLEM: In the future world of STAAR, we
 have a pure “acceleration” curriculum model in
 MS. Rigor and Enrichment have not been primary
 targets for our MS curriculum. (A mile wide and
 an inch deep)
Where we may want to go?
• 6th PAP curriculum is redesigned into a
  “rigorous” and enriched curriculum with
  6th grade TEKS ONLY + Problem Solving
• 7th PAP curriculum is redesigned into a
  “rigorous” and enriched curriculum with
  7th grade TEKS ONLY + Problem Solving
• 8th PAP Math class is designed with
  “rigorous” and “enriched” curriculum with
  8th grade TEKS and Algebra Readiness

                                                 PAP math

8th PAP Math class is designed with “rigorous” and “enriched”
curriculum with 8th grade TEKS + 8TH Grade Problem Solving

PreAP Maintenance

   PreAP Maintenance Criteria (for all grade levels): A
   student who earns below a 70 in two consecutive six
   weeks grading periods will be placed on academic
   probation and a committee including the student,
   parent and teacher will convene to develop a plan for
   future success. If at the conclusion of the six weeks of
   probation the student again earns below a 70%, the
   committee will reconvene to determine if Pre-AP is the
   appropriate placement. Students enrolled in these
   courses should expect high standards and an
   additional time requirement.

Schedule Changes: Schedule changes are

   classes on the schedule. 3) Need to change
   between Pre-AP and Regular level class.
   Make sure you choose your classes carefully
   and understand the schedule change policy
            TAKS Tests
TAKS (for all grade levels): If your child
does not meet expectations on any section of
TAKS (math and/or reading), your child will
be scheduled into the appropriate TAKS
preparation class. According to state law, we
are required to provide your child with
intense accelerated instruction to promote
future academic success. This class(es) will
take the place of one or more electives.
