Mac's Monthly Mission...

Your mission, if you choose to accept it is to utilize differentiated reading strategy groups (three different times).

You have to tweet using- #macsmonthlymission #parkstreetallin and @PSE_Principal showing your students in reading strategy groups (picture or video) THREE different times. Strategy groups should be differentiated (not the same strategy in each photo or video)

This is the LAST week to complete the mission.
