Homework is normally assigned Monday though Thursday. This is Practice and directly reflects the lesson and practice that has happened during class. Normally these assignments include examples that were gone over in class for reference. The video links below also may assist with the concepts currently being taught in class.
The majority of a students grade is based on their performance during Tests and Quizzes. These are times that the students is expected to be able to perform the tasks without extra assistance from the teacher or classmates.

RTI  What and Why
RTI is a "class" that happens twice a week (45min each). This is a time in which I am able to target skills that some students may be currently struggling with, and give extra lessons/practice in a smaller group setting. This is a very effective way to strengthen the skills needed for current units, which normally leads to improved assessment results.
The groups that are in this small group change every 34 weeks (68 sessions). For all students not in the small group, they will be targeting the strategies currently being taught in class in other ways (mostly different forms of practice), which also tends to improve assessment results.

IXL for extra practiceStudents are given sets of IXL codes that will earn them "points" for getting a "smartscore" of 90 (2pts for 100).
