- Checkpoint Assessments
- Reading Records
Teachers will work together in Collaborative Learning Networks (CLNs) on Wednesdays to discuss critical interventions that need to occur to move students as fast as possible.
Academic Engagement Focus
A "learning by doing” approach to learning that offers students the opportunity to learn through concrete experiences, reflective observations, abstract conceptualization, and active experimentation.
Small Group Purposeful Talk
An instructional practice that incorporates student discussion about the desired learning.
