Writing Across Curriculum PLC
In a continued effort to challenge our students and help them grow academically, several of our elementary and secondary teachers have been working collaboratively to improve our writing curriculum on a school-wide scale. The goal is to create a set of standards that are designed to establish a cohesive, unified, and consistent approach to research and writing that can be implemented in all subject areas, across all grade levels.
To this end, the teachers have been working to:
- Identify grade-specific writing skills currently being taught.
- Establish a list of research and writing skills each student should have mastered by the time they graduate.
- Create a dynamic and useful tool that can be utilized from 1st – 12th grade.
- Develop a writing workshop that will be part of our February faculty in-service day.
