Great Article from Stephanie Harvey

This is a little lengthy but is a wonderful refresher on what we are really aiming for with comprehension!


* Due to a substitute shortage, it was necessary to postpone today's previously scheduled curriculum writing. The Math department will have curriculum documents for cluster 3, which begins in January, as soon as they can complete them. They will have cluster planners, CBAs, and daily problem solving available before Thanksgiving. Lessons will be posted when we return from break.

*Please refer to Forethought throughout the cluster because as ideas/activities/lessons are shared with the curriculum department , they add them to Eduphoria for all to use. They also post announcements on adjustments made to CBAs or lessons in the Forethought window.
