High School NewsLinksOur literacy vision has been kicked off this year with “all plays”. An ALL PLAY is just what it states; all teachers, all students are actively learning one objective in each of their classes on a particular day that has one common literacy theme. The staff has employed reading and writing in such a way that students are becoming engaged in the process in all areas of the curriculum taught. The concept is that all students can apply reading and writing in every subject. To help introduce the staff to the process, Mr. Morgan called for an all play Music Monday. Mr. Hanna and Mr. Fleming introduced sounds waves to their physics students through the use of the application, Garage Band. The staff then met and split into groups to share ideas on how to make this process work for everyone. The staff has been wonderful with trying something new and coming together to see this idea to fruition.
Other all play days have been Constitution Day and summary day. Please talk to your children about what they have done in class on all play days. Encourage them to come up with ideas to share with the staff. The more the students get involved, the more they will take ownership in the process.
