I.P.P.’s – a challenge for all (but there’s hope)

I will be speaking at the Middle Years Conference in Lethbridge on April 24 and 25. One of my sessions is titled “I.P.P.s (Individual Program Plans) – Effective Strategies” One of those strategies is to untangle the web of educational jargon we have created for ourselves – what do all of those acronyms stand for? What’s a CCAT, a CAT3, a KTEA, a WISC? And that’s just the acronyms – how about the terminology, the numbers, the percentiles, the coding?

One of my attempts at Eastview Middle School was to provide a file folder of explanation. At the front of the long drawer for each grade’s cum files, the “SAMPLE FOLDER” awaited anyone who needed a refresher with respect to which numbers we had agreed to use, what terms meant, and so on. The pictures below give a bit of an idea.
