Walkthrough Thursday

Thursday, September 7th we will have some Principal visitors walking a handful of our classrooms.  They will be in classes from 8:30 to 9:30.  The purpose of this walkthrough is for these Principals to give Sylvia and I feedback on our plan for the year related to English Learners.  We are looking forward to learning from their ideas as we share the work we are doing.   We will be sharing our focus on instruction for English Learners that we have developed together in July and August:

  1. Every English Learner will be expected to make progress towards grade level standard with scaffolds and supports (e.g. using Side-by-Side to address pre-requisite skills)
  2. Every English Learner will always be able to answer  “What are you learning and why?” (English or home lang)
  3. Every English Learner will be able to utilize the academic language of the lesson
  4. Every English Learner will have frequent discussions with a partner
  5. Every English Learner will have small group guided instruction every day
  6. Every English Learner in Imagine Learning will accumulate 80 minutes a week (20 x 4)
