Facilitate a Training at Your School

Updated 2 weeks ago by Denise Henry

We are happy to support your efforts to train your staff. We recommend that you meet with your success coach before you provide the training to discuss ways to help everyone get the most out of Mangahigh.

We suggest that you provide 2 sessions to teachers to avoid overloading teachers with too much information in one session. Trainers should work through each task for the sessions so that they can determine the amount of time to spend in each area.

Session 1 Focus: Accounts, Rosters, Setting Assignments and Progress Monitoring

Session 2 Focus: Data Mining and Reports

Contact your school's success coach to request a sandbox school or class for your training if you would like a "safe" place for teachers to practice using program features.

Facilitate Data Review

Teachers review data in grade level teams or individually. Create a poster that communicates:

  • Where do students show success?
  • Where do students show struggle?
  • 3 Interesting data points
  • 3 Action items that you will take based on your data

Create an exemplar poster using the whole school's data before the session.

Share the poster before teachers begin working on their own.
