District support for language arts initiative

Started by Mary Johnson on Sep 10, 2002 at 10:34 am Reply | Reply with Quote

The latest state high school scores on reading comprehension and writing justify the implementation of a rigorous new language arts initiative designed to improve those scores. Im on the district planning committee tasked with gathering teacher input and planning for next year. Ive scheduled a meeting for next week (email forthcoming); until then, any thoughts or ideas you have are most welcome and will help me put together an agenda for the meeting.

Can we have the meeting after our Wed. curriculum planning meeting? I think more people would attend. Others in favor, please respond.

I think we can contribute some of the language arts curriculum weve already implemented at BCPS. Our students scored well overall, and I think our own initiatives have contributed significantly toward the improvements in our scores over the last five years.
