Upcoming Vertical PLC
- develop a common understanding of what the different parts of an argument essay are and what they look like
- develop common language across the three grade levels
- develop a shared understanding of what good evidence and reasoning is and is not
- discuss instructional strategies we can use to help students with transfer
Our long-term goal is for teachers at Butler Middle School to teach a consistent format for formal argument essays which we will use across all three grade levels.
*** Since all of you have an SLO related to argument writing, reflective prompts will be provided at the end of each PLC. Your reflections, along with the collaboration and professional learning happening during these PLCs can be used as artifacts for Danielson: 1a, 1d, 1e, 4a, 4d, 4e, 4f.
PLEASE BRING YOUR CHARGED IPAD TO THESE PLCS. YOU WILL NEED TO ACCESS NOTABILITY AND BB9.
