November Teacher Lesson of the Month
Every month RMS students have the opportunity to celebrate a teacher that put together a lesson that they loved! Our teachers have been working extremely hard to engage students. The TLOM is meant to celebrate the amazing lessons our teachers create and promote engagement in our classes.
Our November TLOM is awarded to Ms. Cavagnaro, an 8th grade ELA teacher. The lesson was called, "Blackout Poetry" and the student who nominated this lesson said, “I liked the new approach to making poems, it felt refreshing and new. We would find an article, in this case one about Native Americans, and start to circle sentences that could explain the story the best. We then would limit ourselves to only 25 words and we would blackout all of the other words and sentences. After we finished we put our poems on the wall and read them out loud. I also appreciated that it celebrated Native Americans and connected to Thanksgiving..” Check out the bulletin board outside the main office!
