Vertical Team PLCs

Reminder to bring evidence of goal implementation to our vertical meetings. These are the goals you wrote in October:


ELA

  1. Monthly, bring and analyze student work that shows evidence of writing that matches the unit expectations. Calibrate thinking on what constitutes a 1, 2, and 3.
  2. Create a school writing plan focusing on one component of the plan each month. Begin with the school writing policy.



Math


  1. Complete CUBES word problems 4 times per week and complete 1 written writing prompt per unit explaining how to correctly solve a math problem with appropriate vocabulary.
  2. At least weekly, use CASE question bank to administer checks to maintain rigor of priority standards/calibrate.



Science


  1. Implementation of 3D instruction daily as evidenced in lesson plans.
  2. Collaboratively write summative assessments that measure mastery of disciplinary core ideas through the practices and cross-cutting concepts.



Social Studies


  1. Monthly, bring and analyze student work that shows evidence of inquiry practices. Calibrate thinking on what constitutes a 1, 2, and 3. (QFT, DBQ, extended response, because, but, so).
