HS English Ring

Welcome!  This collaboration ring will allow us to share articles, ideas, and materials as we work to incorporate the core standards and state competencies into our curricula.  If there are links you would like posted, please email them to me at juliaemitchell@gmail.com, and I will share them.  I look forward to working with all of you over the course of the year.  Thank you for being a part of this effort.

Collaborative Competency Project
It's my hope that our collaborative efforts will help us all to improve our use of competency based learning activities.  To that end, please share what you are doing in your classrooms by filling out the form below.  This will help us build a database of lessons/activities we all can use.


I found this article: EdWeek. It explains and illustrates the model for competencies that Newfound has been using. An interesting read. It requires a sign up.

This article from The Boston Globe requires registration and a fee, but it's an interesting take on the fiction/nonfiction balance.  There's also an OpEd piece as well.
