Formative Assessment Idea: Four Corners

Set up four corners in the learning space. In each corner have leveled questions, problems, or ratings posted. Have students migrate to the corner where they want to respond orally or in writing the the posted prompt. Use this method at start of class for pre-assessment, mid-class for check-in, or end of class so students can report out what they know. Don't want the kids to get up - use the placemat option of four corners, allowing students to choose based on mastery or comfort with the topic.

Rosdale Library Summer Reading

The Rosedale Branch of BCPL is in need of student volunteers for the summer reading club, and they dropped off the applications today.

Students must be in grades 7-10 in Fall of 2016, commit to one of two orientation sessions, and fill a 1.5 to 2 hour shift per week. They must work a minimum of 10 hours to receive any service learning hours.

If you know of any interested students, please let Heather Jennings know and she will put the applications in your mailbox. Completed applications must be returned to her by April 8 so that she can get them to BCPL by the 4/10 deadline.

As soon as she gets the summer reading program registration materials, Heather will let you know so that we can get kids registered.
