Two Visits this Week
1. Tuesday- Balanced Literacy Visit Observation & Feedback
Laresha Martin, our Network Superintendent will be here this week on Tuesday morning. She will be observing Reader's Workshop and then will meet with me the teachers we observe so we have an opportunity for feedback and discussion together. I will let you know if you are the "lucky" teachers.
2. Thursday- Instructional Rounds
Robin Lovell from the math department and our "sister" school Sequoia will be visiting us on Thursday morning for instructional rounds.
The focus of rounds this week is:
What evidence do we see of students effectively demonstrating the language, thinking and strategies of a literate individual?
Visitors will look for:
Shared/Close Reading, Interactive Read Aloud, or Mini lesson
Students are actively engaging (speaking, listening, written or oral responding) with a mentor text
Independently reading just-right text (a text that they can read and understand independently)
Responding to just right text through post its or response journal tracking their reading lives in reading logs
Prompts They Will Ask Your Students:
Tell me about what you are reading? What are you working on as a reader? (listen for ability to summarize and critique)
Can you read a little bit to me from your book? (listen for accuracy and fluency)
