Excited about Books!
Before officially starting their cultural perspectives independent reading unit, students in Mrs. Cady's English class held a short book talk and had the opportunity to explore the books to find what they were interested in. There were students who couldn't pick because they wanted to read multiples. Mrs. Cady said, "It was probably one of my most rewarding days teaching ever."
Mrs. Lewellyn and Ms. Jackson's World Civ classes visited Nina and Pinta in NKY. Mr. Varble and Mr. Estep's U.S. 10 classes also toured the boats. Our students received multiple compliments on their good behavior!!

High Yield Instructional Practices:
Research-Based Strategies (1) Identifying Similarities & Differences (2) Summarizing and Note Taking (3) Reinforcing Effort and Providing Recognition (4) Practice (5) Nonlinguistic Representations (6) Cooperative Learning (7) Setting Objectives & Providing Feedback (8) Generating and Testing Hypotheses (9) Cues, Questions and Advance Organizers
Another great resource for high-yield, research-based practices is to look at Hattie's, "Visible Learning for Teachers." (I have a copy if you'd like to borrow:). The practices of formative assessment, feedback, teacher clarity, student self-assessment/reflection, verbalization and questioning, intervention/remediation/extra-practice are all high effect practices.
The key is the intentionality with which we choose and implement the strategies!
