ELA Six Instructional Shifts
Please rank your prior experience with each shift in terms of four levels:
1 - New to me (could not explain it to someone else)
2 - Awareness (know what it is, but no personal examples of use)
3 - Routine (do this all the time, and have examples)
4 - Coaching (have used this as part of a successful team)
