The Achieve3000 Daily Five-Step
When students first
log in to Achieve, they are asked to express their opinion about the topic of
the day based on their prior knowledge. Then their routine begins.
1.Email. Bring students' prior
knowledge into the classroom as they make connections to and express
opinions about the topic of the day
2.Article. Students derive
information from non-fiction articles differentiated to their level. Repeated
exposure to vocabulary and embedded strategy support
enables all students to participate in classroom discussions.
Access to year-level text and activities ensure that students have frequent
interactions with year-appropriate complex text.
demonstrate successful close reading of text by responding to
text-dependent questions that require higher-order thinking skills
4.Poll. All students express
their opinions again, based on the reading they did that day, with teachers
requiring students to provide evidence for their opinion.
Teachers then facilitate discussion and debates in the
5.Thought Question. A critical
thinking activity leads students to write in more formal scenarios with the
intent to either argue or inform about a
situation or narrate an event
