Our instructional focus will continue with supporting students’ abilities to read closely and provide evidence in argumentative tasks. Students will develop the skill of using evidence to support arguments in discussion, which will then transfer to strong writing in literacy and math, and develop the communication and collaboration skills that support college and career readiness. In addition to conducting regular inquiry work on the school-wide, department, teacher team, and individual level, a Professional Development Committee, consisting of a representative from each department, will continue to meet two times per month to share the professional development needs of their respective areas and facilitate the creation of productive professional development and teacher collaboration.
