November Instructional Newsletter

Sheffield City Schools Grades 6-12

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!

I designed this newsletter to help with some of the universal issues many of you have discussed with me during our curriculum conversations. I have divided this newsletter up into content areas....

HISTORY

This is a great example of a form of Close Reading strategies you can use in any classroom.
Grappling with Complex Informational Text

ENGLISH LANGUAGE ARTS

I love the collaboration between these two teachers in the English department. This is a good demonstration of how you can team up within your content area to offer solutions to each other.

MATH

Math teachers, this strategy will be a big help in knowing who needs Tier 2 instruction.

SCIENCE

Science teachers, I found this one for you because of the tremendous amount of academic language that is in your content area.

CAREER TECH, ROTC, BAND, HEALTH, ETC.

This is a great way of engaging students in any content area. Enjoy!
