GO COLTS!

Week 1 Conquered - Week 2 Here We Come!!!

I would like to thank everyone for their hard work this week! It was great to see so many teacher collaborating and coming together to conquer the start of school. Remember, your second week is just as important (if not more so) when it comes to holding high expectations in your classroom. You started the week off strong so make sure you stick to your routines/procedures while delivering good first instruction.

DOLS/EXIT TICKETS/LESSON CLOSURES

As we get accustom to the bell schedule be sure you stay aware of how you are managing your time each period. You must ensure you are leaving enough time to execute a measurable lesson assessment so you can gain data on student progress towards your lesson objective.

As we stated during in-service we expect that no less than one DOL per week be in the format of Short Answer Response (SAR). This is across ALL contents. Please be using the SAR rubric that Ms. Smith shared with you to grade these.

We all know that our students need to be reading and writing every day so be prepared for an increase in SAR DOL expectations during the year. This is all the more reason we want you to practice now.

You may reference TEI domain 2.2 for specific metrics on DOLS.

GREAT JOB ON DUTY!

REMINDERS FOR THE WEEK!

  • Committees sign-up coming soon so look out for an email
  • 7th Period - Have your students put chairs on the desk. This helps the cleaning crew at night
  • Upload lesson plans by Monday of each week on Google - See CIC for help!
  • Do not put students out in the hallway. You may talk with a student at the doorway, but do not banish students to the hall during class.
  • Check you mailbox in the front office every day
  • Check your email before, during lunch, and after school to ensure you are aware of any important information.
