Differentiation/accessibility strategies and support (TAG, ELL, SpEd, other):
The differentiation strategies used in this course are based on the evidence (data) received through multiple forms of pre, ongoing, and formative assessments. Described here are the types of assessments used and specific differentiation strategies in place to meet the needs of ALL learners (including TAG, ESL, Special Ed...)

Differentiated Instruction:
Differentiated instructional methods are used to reach students of all levels including TAG, ELL and Special Education.
Curriculum compacting provides alternative activities for students who have already mastered curriculum content.
Accelerating or decelerating the pace that students move through curriculum. Students demonstrating a high level of competence can work through the curriculum at a faster pace. Students experiencing difficulties may need adjusted activities that allow for a slower pace in order to experience success.
Flexible grouping allows students to be appropriately challenged. As student performance will vary it is important to have students rotate between groups.
Tiered activities are a series of related tasks of varying complexity. All of these activities relate to essential understanding and key skills that students need to acquire. Activities are assigned as alternative ways of reaching the same goals taking into account individual student needs.
All students are encouraged to participate in extra-curricular activities such as after school Skills USA and Automotive Competition Club (CRLE).

Assessment Strategies:
Various assessment activities include journals, reading comprehension (automotive job sheets), Cornell notes, written auto work orders, tests, teacher & student evaluation of shop assignments and the Oregon Skill Sets Automotive assessment.
Career-related learning experiences (CRLEs):
  • Field trips
  • Guest speakers
  • Career Information System (CIS)
  • Project-based Learning
  • Service Learning
ODE Essential Skills and related Work Samples:
Assessment/evaluation/grading policy:
Assessment/evaluation/grading policy:
Students will be evaluated by completion of hands on worksheets (competency’s), tests and quizzes. Students will also be evaluated on their shop work including work habits, class participation, following class safety rules and shop cleanup. All work will be given a point value,points will be totaled at the end of quarter and grades determined as follows:100-90%=A 89-80%=B 79-70=%C 69-60%=D Below 60%=F
Behavioral expectations:
