TRAINING AT YOUR CAMPUS
We will inservice all of the teachers at your Campus so that vertical alignment can prevail. Every teacher plays a role, and together everyone creates a performance of a lifetime for each child. All students will benefit from the small chunking at each grade level, and will harbor a feeling of love for learning. Let us give each grade level team the WHY, the WHAT, and the HOW of effective vertical alignment for Reading and Writing.
Full Circle Language Arts 2.0
Educators become the teacher of a student’s lifetime when FCLA by Teach BIG enters the classroom. From teaching reading comprehension through stick figure drawings and making TRACKS all the way to constructing short and extended answer responses with simple graphic organizers, students benefit as they fall in love with feeling confident.
With high self-esteem and quality instruction, working together as a team, nothing is impossible including sentence construction taught through symbols and chants and revising techniques taught using the acronym, READ. Watch students’ faces as they begin to master concepts such as Rearranging, Exchanging, Adding, and Deleting ideas from their written masterpieces.
When these components are added together, the result equals a strong Informative and Argumentative writer who can excel within either platform-short or extended constructed response. Through engaging activities, students grow to thoroughly understand the constructed response components: thesis/claim, textual evidence, inferencing/counterargument, and conclusion connections to self, text, and world.
Finally, state assessments can stop being sources of stress and start becoming places of rest! What a day it will be when all students can feel like the test is their place to shine!
