Giant Concrete Arrows Across America

But back in the 1920s, things were not so easy. The U.S. Postal Service began its Transcontinental Air Mail service in 1920. The very first pilots had to rely on landmarks to navigate their route across the country. The beacons were giant concrete arrows, set into the ground about 10 miles apart. 50-foot towers with powerful rotating gas lights lit up the arrows. The first of these beacons was built in 1924, on the route between Ohio and Wyoming. The pilots were usually former military men. The system of beacons and giant concrete arrows was not in use for long. Many of the arrows still exist to this day. Thinking about what we have today, how has navigation changed?

Using Informal Assessments for English Language Learners. By: Colorín Colorado (2007) Informal assessments (also called authentic or alternative) allow teachers to track the ongoing progress of their students regularly and often.

Using Informal Assessments for English Language Learners

While standardized tests measure students at a particular point in the year, ongoing assessments provide continual snapshots of where students are throughout the school year. By using informal assessments, teachers can target students' specific problem areas, adapt instruction, and intervene earlier rather than later.
