GRADE LEVEL  COMMON CORE PLC TEAMS

The purposes of content area teams are to maintain unity of curriculum, instruction, assessment, and to align and implement the Common Core units of study in ELA and math within each grade level. Content area teams by grade levels have been developed to support the monitoring of summative and formative assessments for individual students, systematically reviewing individual student performance rates as well as strategies for differentiated instruction. Individual grade level content area common core PLC’s will meet every Wednesday.  Every core teacher will participate in PLC meetings with content area and grade-level colleagues. Teachers will be expected to sign in.   Instructional coaches will attend the monthly building PLC leader meetings.

 

These meetings will be conducted by instructional coaches, PLC leaders and building administrators will set the agenda to ensure three major purposes for instructional improvement are being met. These three major purpose for instructional improvement will include;

  1. to develop rubrics for Common Core formative assessments
  2. to review of walkthrough data to ensure that all classroom instruction is meeting the student center site based goals that addresses the  needs of a diverse population,
  3. to review data of classroom practices to gage affective developmental goals for young adolescents that includes student led conferencing and,
  4. to review summative data from fileMaker at the end of each quarter for the assurance that school wide wide SMART goals are being met as these goals are realigned to fit individual plans of learning. 

 

Teachers will coach and support the implementation of Common Core standards and student center instructional practices in their classrooms.
