My first method would be to review any test information related to reading, language, and math connected to my students. I believe this would give me an idea of how my students have been doing and in what areas they need extra support. I could also try to get ahold of writing samples from the previous year, and see the academic language my students are using. Using K-W-L (Know, Want to Know, Learned) chart to learn about students’ knowledge on a subject. This method would allow me to see the progress of my students and work as an assessment. I would also give my students a questionnaire that could give me an idea of their learning styles. To learn about my students’ skills, I will need to interact with them. Class activities will also help me learn if students can work together and solve a problem.
