Week at a Glance 5-2-16 to 5-6-16 TEACHER APPRECIATION WEEK! I love love love you all!

ZIS Vision: One Child, Two Languages - Unlimited Possibilities

ZIS Mission: We will provide and assist each student with a well-rounded and differentiated education that is centered around the immersion of the Spanish language and cultures to prepare them for a global society.

Instructional Focus: CO (the what) /LO (the how) --> Comprehensible Input (manipulatives, visuals, hands-on, videos, linked to past learning, linked to student's background, etc.) --> Student Artifacts (PLAN WITH THE END IN MIND)

Also, CPA/Grade-Level Meetings:

1)what do you want them to learn?

2) How do you know they learned it and what does mastery look like?

3) What do you do if they got it?

4) What do you do if they don't get it?
