A Pedagogy of Belonging

The link below will take you to an article that provides us with an understanding of when one belongs in a classroom and school community, it contributes to successful learning experiences. The school plays an important role in meeting the needs of students.

We will discuss the article during our upcoming PLC meeting.

A pedagogy of belonging

Stay Focus

The end of the nine weeks is at the end of this week (March 24th).

We will be looking at the failure list at the end of the nine weeks. I encourage you to check to see how many students are currently failing.

How many of your students had failing grades the previous nine weeks?

How many have failed the same content area twice?

What is the probability of these students being able to pull up their last nine weeks grades so that they can meet promotion standards by the end of the 4th nine weeks period?

Have the parents of failing students been notified?

How are you supporting your students to ensure they are not failing?
