Action Research and Reading Olympics and Wall of Honor! OH MY!
Good ol' Action Research concluded last month. I really value the idea of reflection and believe AR gives us the opportunity to look closely at effective instruction and student learning. It is my hope that the mode and process will not change going forward, at least for a bit of time. I would like us all to be familiar with the expectations of AR going into the new year. The PLC groups with which I was a part were tied directly to AR, so group participants were able to touch upon this process monthly, which I feel was beneficial. Scroll down to see a sneak peak of the PLCs which I plan on facilitating for next year!
Reading Olympics begins on Monday, May 2 and concludes Wednesday, May 4. This competition is run by the DCIU and celebrates a love for reading. This year, we are hosting schools from all over Delaware County. I'd like to thank those who, in advance, volunteered to help out! Look for an update on our Teams' progress come June!
And, the month concludes with the Wall of Honor Project. Rob King and Dave Wood's American Studies' classes have been researching Radnor High School Students who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country, in WWI, WWII, and Vietnam. This wall will be unveiled on May 26th. More to come on this amazing project next month as well!
