Options Area ELA, history, and science teachers and Options Area administrators gathered this morning for the fourth and final session of Shifting Instruction to the Core. This session focused on next steps educators might take this year and during the 2015-2016 school year. Participants began the session by using the EQuIP Student Work Protocol to review students performance on mini-assessments from various classrooms. (Links to Session III: Next Generation Assessments: ELA, History, and Science ). Educators then moved to investigating instructional implications based on this student work evidence. These implications were used during a Keep It or Junk It during which participants to created a focused answer to the question, "What professional support would best serve CCSS-aligned teaching and learning for the 2015-2016 school year?". This educator-generated work will form part of the basis for professional support provided all Options Area teachers during the next school year. Materials for the session are linked below.
