Keeping you "In the Know"...

"Learning begins at the edge of your comfort zone."

Campus Happenings:

Here is a link to a new blog coming from Exemplars.

"Our first post takes on a kindergarten-level task, “Boots.” We walk you through an exercise that highlights what it looks like to meet some of the TEKS Number and Operations standards. It’s fun for teachers and students alike, and we hope you enjoy it." -Exemplars

"Our blog series will showcase student work from six different grades, K–5. Enjoy the first post, and stay tuned for more." -Exemplars

ELAR Professional Learning

Professional Learning - 7:20-8:20 - Admin Training Rooms
We will celebrate the successes teachers have had with implementing the ELAR cluster pre-assessments and the utilization of that data in developing common formative assessments. Teachers will need to bring (1) an example of how they have used the ELAR cluster pre-assessments to create CFAs and (2) a technology device.

Please be prepared to answer the following question about your artifact:
