Celebrate Continuous Learning in PD: ELLs and Differentiation!

NP3 works hard to know each and every student and their needs as learners. Every assessment, student product and interaction provides educators with more information on student achievement levels and areas to support or challenge. It guides every instructional choice teachers make for each child. To all the Pirate staff - great effort, enthusiasm and implementation of different strategies and concepts to address each student!

ELL strategies! Fill your toolbox! Notice how many are familiar to you!
