Mac's Monthly Mission...

No mission for this month due to the break and conference days. If you completed last month's mission, please send me an email so we can get your lunch order.

Coaches Corner...

From Heather Welch:


A Tip While Writing Plans

TKES goals #2 is all about Planning.

Here are some resources to help you show proficiency!

These questions can help you ensure you have the important components in your plans:

1. What do you expect students to learn?

2. How will you know when students understand?

3. How do you respond when students don't understand? Remediate?

4. How do you respond when students understand? Enrich?
