District 7 Teacher Institute Day

Posted: February 12, 2016

Although District 7 buildings were void of children today, learning was still occurring within the walls of Goshen, Liberty, Edwardsville High School and Hadley House, where teachers and related service personnel gathered to grow in their profession.

Teachers received professional development on a host of topics related to curriculum development, technology, and building safety and emergency plans.

It was a great day to move initiatives ahead, improve instruction, and learn from each other. A big thanks goes out to all of the talented presenters who helped to make this day a success.

What is the ISEL?

Posted: February 1, 2016

Kindergarten through 5th Grade parents receive copies of the ISEL summary sheet with the first quarter report cards and again in January, but some may still wonder, “What is the ISEL?”

The Illinois Snapshot of Early Literacy (ISEL) is a reading performance inventory that measures early literacy skills. Results from the assessment provide the teacher a snapshot of each student’s literacy strengths and competencies and assists the classroom teacher in developing lessons that meet each child’s needs.

The ISEL is based on scientific reading research and sound classroom practice. It reflects the research conducted by the National Standards for Reading and the expectations outlined in the Illinois Learning Standards.

To learn more about the ISEL, click on this link http://www.ecusd7.org/news/15-16/IllinoisSnapshotofEarlyLiteracy.pdf or visit our website: http://www.ecusd7.org/for_parents/assessment.asp#ISEL.
