Students will learn and apply assessments, instructional strategies and curriculum that focus on Early Literacy. After spending six days learning the Pathways to Reading (PTR) model, students will implement this model in their classrooms. They will also “blend” assessments from Pathways to Reading (PTR) with other assessments.
The Adaptive Schools (AS) model focuses on a collective responsibility for student learning and developing strong schools in which collaborative teams are capable of meeting the challenges of today and the uncertain challenges of tomorrow. This model is the "how" of implementing a professional learning community.
This study group will look at the possibilities for using the Mimio sticks and slates as alternatives to the Smartboard and Promethean boards.
