Local Literacy News:

For the past school year, Bucyrus secondary teachers have focused on Keys to Literacy vocabulary instruction. The year will culminate with mentor teachers inviting teaching peers into the classroom to share best practices with vocabulary instruction. These collaborations will be either live or recorded.



Students reap the benefits when their teachers discuss, practice, refine, and then share uniform and effective best practices. In his updated list of factors that influence student achievement, leading educational researcher John Hattie places collective teacher efficacy (when teachers see themselves as part of a team working together for their students) as the number one factor that influences student success.
