Our Campus Improvement Plan (CIP) aligns every classroom with core research-based teaching practices which maximize learning for each and every student. All classrooms will consistently demonstrate these universal, best practices for teaching and learning:
Tasks will be rigorous, thus involving the pairing of core content knowledge and thinking skills. Tasks will require students to synthesize information from multiple sources, explain, justify, summarize, and evaluate.
Students will be engaged in relevant learning that promotes maximum participation. Collaborative tasks and classroom discussions will be deeply rooted in content, promote critical thinking skills, and explore connections to text, self, and world.
Clear Expectations & Feedback
Learning expectations will be well-organized. Students will understand learning goals and use tools to measure their own progress, such as criteria charts, rubrics, and specific, frequent feedback.
