📌 Semester 2: Instructional Vision at Highlands
At Highlands, our academic mission is to prepare, challenge and inspire to ensure high levels of learning for all students. This semester, teachers at Highlands are prioritizing and focusing on the following instructional practices to enhance learning for our students:
- Intentional Core Instruction: Students are doing the talking (thinking); teachers ask questions based on student discussions and encourage students to think and generalize what they know to new situations.
- Intentional Core Instruction: Teacher teams will use common formative assessments throughout the learning process to strategically target skills that will accelerate student achievement.
