Vertical Team PLCs Goals

ELA

  1. Monthly, bring and analyze student work that shows evidence of writing that matches the unit expectations. Calibrate thinking on what constitutes a 1, 2, and 3.
  2. Create a school writing plan focusing on one component of the plan each month. Begin with the school writing policy.



Math


  1. Complete CUBES word problems 4 times per week and complete 1 written writing prompt per unit explaining how to correctly solve a math problem with appropriate vocabulary.
  2. At least weekly, use CASE question bank to administer checks to maintain rigor of priority standards/calibrate.



Science


  1. Implementation of 3D instruction as evidenced in lesson plans.
  2. Collaboratively write summative assessments that measure mastery of disciplinary core ideas through the practices and cross-cutting concepts.



Social Studies


  1. Monthly, bring and analyze student work that shows evidence of inquiry practices. Calibrate thinking on what constitutes a 1, 2, and 3. (QFT, DBQ, extended response, because, but, so).

PLC Notes

Science


  • Discussion of the CASE data analysis.
  • Eye-opening to look at writing for another grade.
  • Discussion about science collaborating with the math teachers to emphasize the math for the unit that's also used in science.
  • Need to practice timed writing. Kids are not handling timed writings well.
  • Need to practice giving kids a set amount of space to put their answer in.


Team Leader


  • Work skills report--will do like we did last year though Google Form.
  • Behavior adjustments to make: Full school reward, visiting classrooms to unveil new BF, adjusting points
  • Teams need to identify what they would like the PTSO to purchase for them this year
  • ipads and doc cameras are ordered for those who requested them




Math


  • Based on CASE data, going to begin giving kids CASE questions to dissect and answer weekly and score together.
  • Also looking for other ways to up the rigor into the DOK 2 and 3 levels.
