2018-2019 Department Goals

Using the DWB process and outcomes from 2017-2018, identify specific areas of growth within each grade level and develop strategies and interventions to inform instruction and create formative assessments.

Analyzing student work as a department is an integrated part of the teacher’s unit planning and instruction to focus on assessing student growth and developing intervention and learning strategies.

Teachers will develop an understanding of, and implement, instructional strategies, including technology-based instruction, to support students in thinking critically, providing authentic creative outlets, and incorporating supports for academic literacy, English Learners, and Special Education students.

Develop a short and long-term plan for updating instructional materials, including:

A streamlined process for adopting relevant and current novels and films on a regular basis

Daily and accessible Incorporation of classroom sets of Chromebooks/equivalent technology

Begin interdisciplinary discussions with at least one other department that focus on reading and writing across disciplines.
