Re: Practice Charts
I've used them my entire career with middle school students. Last year, we did not do them at all with 7/8th grade and stopped them pretty quickly with the beginners. There was a noticeable difference by the end of the year with 6th graders on what they were able to do. They were behind classes from past years. It wasn't as big of a gap with the older kids.
We've gone back to practice reports for beginners this year. For me, I don't think we get a lot that lie about their practice. Most of those kids just don't turn them in.
