Susan Stanley, Principal at Salina Elementary reflects on this week’s Language and Literacy work related to Planning and Teaching with the ELA Standards in Mind:
“We have had some very powerful learning this week at Salina Elementary. I truly believe that our staff has made great leaps in their understanding of Content and Language Objectives as they apply to their grade level standards. Taking the time to dissect and plan those standards into meaningful learning for our ELs with a common vocabulary, stretched our beliefs and learning for us all.
The teachers left excited and renewed. It was the definition of an effective PLC. Amy Markos is such an excellent facilitator. We are all going to see the results of this week of learning.
On behalf of the teachers and students of Salina, thank you again for bringing this learning to our building.”
