Important Information and Updates
Have a great weekend!
Professional Development is essential to professional growth. Learning is how you become better at your craft. It helps to build knowledge, skill, and self-confidence. Reflect on your last PD experience (outside of school PD). How long ago was it? Did you learn something that you use? Did it help to build your knowledge and skill set? Was it voluntary or mandatory? These questions are important. Please consider attending a math or reading training this summer if you can. If this is not possible, invest in a new book to help you to continue to learn and critique your craft.
The math department and literacy department are providing a lot of PD sessions this summer. They are at different days and times so please try to attend at least 1. It is always good to hear information and expectations straight from the source! :-)
If you have any questions, please let me know.
3-5 EOG Review---Action Required
When you are conducting EOG review, please make sure to have a QUICK checkpoint for the standards that you are teaching. This is a checkpoint and should not be long. We don't want to test them too much, but we have to gauge whether our teaching and reteaching is working. Please bring student checkpoints to planning so that we can analyze the data and revamp instruction if needed.
