Jim Ellis This book is an invaluable tool to help teachers create a powerful classroom using both data and team building. This is a book written by a teacher for teachers. Data & Team Building in the Middle School will affect your classroom immediately.
Data and team building can be integrated into a classroom very simply. As teachers, we are already collecting mountains of data on our students, yet we rarely aggregate that data and then disaggregate it for meaning. We even more rarely disseminate it to our students or provide them the tools to use it.
Teams of all kinds rely on correct and timely information along with clear goals to achieve.Data is only as good as those who use it.
