Going Bananas for OAAs!
During the 2009-2010 school year I promised my 6th and 7th grade Recovery Reading students that if over half of them improved on their Reading OAA scores that I would do something embarrassing. Well…the test scores were even better than I imagined! As a result, I stood out on the sidewalk of Main Street on a busy downtown Akron afternoon in a monkey costume!
