ARTS: Melding arts integration with technology and robust 21st century student learning opportunities
TECHNOLOGY: Maximizing technology integration and access
COMMON CORE: Deep implementation of Common Core Math and ELA Standards
COLLABORATION: Consistent and scheduled opportunities for grade level teams to collaborate around four essential Questions:
What do students need to know, understand, and be able to do? (Learning Goals)
How will we teach effectively to ensure students learn? (Strategies, Activities)
How will we know what students have learned? (Assessments – Formative and Summative)
What do we do when students don’t learn or reach proficiency before expectation? (Intervention and Enrichment)
School Climate: Ensuring a safe and civil environment through creation of common language, expectations, rules, and procedures.
RTI/MTSS: Systematic approach to get all students the intervention and/or enrichment opportunities they need to be successful.
The staff at Hawthorne is excited to partner with each of you as we work toward maximizing student success this school year.
