Monitoring and the role of the teacher in charge of monitoring.
Each class has a time slot in the week’s timetable for follow-up. In each class, a follow-up teacher is responsible for approximately twelve pupils. His or her duties correspond to those of a head teacher, adapted to the school’s school project.
Follow-up remains the essential place for the elaboration of the pupil’s project: during the sessions, the teacher analyses with the pupil his school results, helps him to make the best use of the LP2I devices to reach his objectives, negotiates with him his orientation project, helps him to prepare the class councils (each pupil intervenes there to present his assessment to the pedagogical team), gives him organisational and methodological advice and dialogues with him about his behaviour and motivation.
The follow-up teacher can also meet with the parents when necessary. He or she can decide on a tripartite (pupil, head teacher, follow-up teacher) or quadripartite (with the parents) contract. The follow-up teacher, the management team and the CPEs exchange any useful information concerning the pupils in the group.
The observatory: a computerised monitoring systemThe teaching team has a computerised monitoring tool (“the observatory”) integrated into GEPI.
In the observatory, the year is divided into several periods.
For each period, each teacher in his or her discipline indicates, using a very simple coding system (four options to choose from), where the pupil is located. On the summary tables, each option has a different colour, which makes it possible to quickly identify pupils in difficulty.
This coding system is also used to guide the student in his choice of activities during the BAS half-days.
In addition, each teacher may submit a comment if he or she deems it useful.
All this information is accessible to all teachers and to the student concerned via his/her personal access to GEPI.
In addition to these disciplinary fields, other fields are available to students and the teaching team:
- Orientation project
- Objective n° 1 for the period (disciplinary or other ) .
- Objective n° 2 for the period (disciplinary or other) .
- Objective n° 3 for period 3 (method,…)
- Pupil’s assessment for the period.
- Follow-up professor’s notice for the period .
The Senior Education Advisors also have a section available to them.
The observatory enables teaching teams to have a clear picture of existing needs and their nature in the classroom they share. But it also enables them to better understand the steps taken by the follow-up teacher, insofar as for each pupil there is an individual sheet summarising his or her progress over the year.
All the data recorded in the observatory are accessible to the pupil via his personal access to GEPI.
The follow-up teacher also has access to the teachers’ notebooks and textbooks to supplement his or her information (other GEPI functionalities).
