English Language Arts: Grades K-8
Every teacher in grades 1 through 8 has had extensive training in Readers Workshop. The workshop model allows teachers to develop an environment that is focused and cohesive so that students can progress at an individual rate. Students are immersed in books and are afforded the opportunity to engage in academic discourse. Differentiation and individualized learning takes place in student-teacher conferences where teachers can truly assess students’ understanding, clarify misconceptions, and support learners. The district has and will continue to support teachers in professional growth to strengthen the components, structure, and rigor of the workshop model. Students in grades 1 thru 8 are assessed using i-Ready, a comprehensive assessment program. I-Ready enables students to practice skills and progress at their own individual pace based on their initial screening.
