Early Release at Mt. Blue, December 2, 2009


On December 2, Mt. Blue held another early release day that focused on literacy.  The literacy team planned - with staff input - to provide an afternoon based on  the school wide implementation of core literacy strategies. 

Teachers were asked to choose the perspective they wanted to study.  Two groups resulted.  One was a group of 9 that wanted to examine how the strategies could be embedded in all content areas, while group two requested in depth instruction on specifc strategies with hands on time to create lessons for their classrooms.  This was the larger group and necessitated creating three separate groups. 

All of the sessions were conducted by members of the literacy team.  They did an excellent job.  This type of staff development is invaluable - teachers teaching teachers - talking about students. 

Kudos for all staff members!  Your students are fortunate.  They will all benefit!
