PLC End of Year Goal

We have mapped out our Year At A Glace for 2016-2017. I would like for us to have our scope and sequence "penciled in" before we leave for summer. Please notice that due to May Maddness, our PLC times may vary (see calendar dates above).

PLC Summer Project

For each of our readiness TEKS we will create a tri-folder including the following information. After STAAR, we will divvy up the TEKS among our team members. The purpose for this project is so that as we plan next year, we will have all of the information we need to refer to in one place.

  • Field Guide
  • Academic Vocabulary
  • Scaffold Document
  • Released STAAR Items (Released Test IQ Document)
  • Student Learning Report (Include all previous campus data)
  • Best practices, lessons, activities, labs, TEKS Clarification, etc.
