What are we doing with Writing Agreements in our individual schools?
- How are those Writing Agreements working? ELA folks? Content folks? Specials?
- What is not working with these Writing Agreements and other Writing Efforts?
- How should we move forward to sustain Writing?
- What's ahead next year for RSU 24 Writing expectations?
- How will we map our Writing Curriculum as a way to continue improving Writing literacy?
- Should students be writing on demand as in Writing Assessments for the district level? (Local Assessments in Writing?)
- Should the RSU adopt the 6-8 ELA Springboard program?
- ELA students at both high schools are Springboarders? How is it going?
- Why not provide RSU 24 Content Teachers a forum for discussing Writing Agreements to inform district decisions?
- Why not provide RSU 24 Specials Teachers a forum for discussing Writing Agreements to inform district decisions?
- Both Forums must have a voice!
- What will/should Writing Agreements look like in music, art, physical education, guidance (where guidance has a curriculum being taught)?
- Are Kid Friendly rubrics in the making?
The Springboard ELA program is a real possibility. March inservice will include presentations on this program. No decision was made to adopt!
Atlas Rubicon is a curriculum mapping program new to the district and spreading in popularity. Stay tuned for more coming to a school near you. This mapping system is used to map the expectations around literacy, where the gaps might be, where could we use more professional development, etc.
