Describe the prototype(s) your school will focus on. Get creative. Be sure to describe the various approaches staff will take, what you will keep your eye on and how staff plan to document their results.
Implementation of comprehension assessments requires a significant investment of time and resources. As a result, full implementation at grades 5 and 6, and partial implementation at grades 7 and 8, have been challenging.
The 15-minute reading block is very short, plus it backs onto lunch recess, so some time is lost in that transition.
Support teachers in utilizing the information gained through the comprehension assessments.
Collect some interim data on student reading habits and the impact of the 15-minute daily reading block.
Continue to pursue the possibility of a literacy walk for grade 7 and 8 ELA and FLA teachers.
Provide teachers with digital binders to collect and track literacy data; <font color="#4472c4" size="1">facilitates sharing information
