Literacy Lead Teachers

posted May 26, 2017, 9:40 AM by Prairie Spirit Webmaster

A regular part of teaching and learning is assessing how students are doing with a variety of reading and writing skills.  Teachers set goals, work with students in the classroom, assess where the students are at, and repeat the cycle.  We are fortunate to have two literacy lead teachers who are available to help teachers with this teaching cycle.  Being able to interpret data with a colleague, see techniques modeled in the classroom, and be introduced to new resources is a benefit to our staff.  Brenda Atkinson (K-8 Literacy Lead) and Brett Dow (7-12 Literacy Lead) will be balancing their time between their classrooms and acting as literacy leads this fall.
