October is step three in our journey into school wide implementation of six high yield literacy strategies from MMGW. In the lounge, you will find your folders have been cleaned out to make room for new material. Just like last month, contents will be kept by Mr. Cantrell for follow up visits with Mrs. Duty. So, photocopy student work if you want to keep it because it will not be returned
After you implement the use of graphic organizers,
which is explained in the link, try it out in your classroom at least once. Be sure to post an “exemplary” example so students understand what you expect. Collect sample work and place it in your folder in the lounge at least 5 class days prior to the end of the month. After you have placed your samples in the lounge, view cross curriculur versions of the graphic organizers from the faculty folders.
The last step is to leave a comment on the blog by the last day of October. Your comment should include:
1. How you used the graphic organizers in your room.
2. Feedback on student engagement.
3. Comments on the faculty samples. Be specific.
4. Any additional comments you may have about the strategy.
