As educators, we cannot meet our student’s needs if we do not assess where they are. The Oral Language Assessment or OLA is a tool that allows us to analyze student’s utterances. Our staff has been working hard to learn about OLA to guide our instruction and improve our craft. This video is a short excerpt of our amazing coach Lori McManus with our first grade team at our Professional Learning Community (PLC). Everyone had a very productive learning day. Thank you Lori!
