      KATHY BREZYNSKIE: Using the stickies,we can get several pieces of information.We have the first column here, which is their diagnostic.So to perform a diagnostic, you give theman assignment or a test where you've given themno teaching strategies, no information, justto see what they know.The yellow sticky is a level two,meaning they're approaching successful outcomes.

      KATHY BREZYNSKIE [continued]: Level one means that they are in needof some countermeasures or extra help to achieve.Level three is they are meeting the standards.And then, a level four is a green dot.It means they've gone beyond what we expected.And you can see this student here with the yellow stickies,they've accomplished or achieved about a level two.

      KATHY BREZYNSKIE [continued]: And as a teacher, I look at that and realize they definitelyneed a little bit of help in understanding what criteriawill make them more successful.Then, after you've taught the entire learning cycleand designed it around the needs of the students,you put learning cycle one colored dots.And you can see this student has thenachieved a level three in French,

      KATHY BREZYNSKIE [continued]: are the caring connections.And every time you make a caring connectionwith any student in the school, we just mark it off.So that allows us to see which students need more interactionwith staff on a regular basis.On the back of each sticky we have three areas.Area of needs for a student.The strengths they have demonstrated to us.

      KATHY BREZYNSKIE [continued]: And also, interests.In order to get the most out of your students,it helps if you can give them subjects in areasthat they are interested in.And even if it's a caring connection,if you can talk to them about an area they're interested in,you can make a better connection with them.
