Reading teachers and paraprofessionals from across the District were busy learning this morning. Ask them for a Web 2.0 tip or two!
District teams met this morning at Prairie View Elementary to explore the S-BAC testing portal and discuss ways Title I can support the Idaho Core Standards. Teachers also visited several interactive phonics, vocabulary, and comprehension websites that can be used to support explicit instruction. Teams logged onto informational text sites such as Discovery Education, Read Write Think, ReadWorks.Org and Wonderopolis before receiving more specialized iPad and Kindle Fire support. What a collaborative and hard-working group of professionals!
