Science Survey Reminder
The District Planning Advisory Council, a group comprised of parents, students, community members, and district representatives, is exploring recent student achievement results on the Minnesota Comprehensive Assessment for 5th Grade Science.
We would appreciate your thoughts, perspectives, and insights around Science, at the elementary level, and have created a 3 question survey survey for you to complete. We are hoping to utilize the feedback that you provide to make a recommendation(s) to the School Board in order to improve student achievement in elementary science for all students in our system.
Thank you for taking a few moments of your time to respond to this brief survey.
Teaching Tolerance Article; Neuroscience of Call and Response
Learning begins with attention. We cannot learn, remember or understand anything to which we don’t first give our attention. The teacher’s “call” triggers the students’ reticular activating system (RAS). Learn more about one way to activate students' thinking.
