2) Elementary Writing Curriculum

Sue Porter, Director of Teaching and Learning, and Becky Edy, Highland Terrace Teacher, reported on the “Being a Writer” curriculum which is being piloted at Highland Terrace and Parkwood Elementary Schools by 15 teachers. The feedback from teachers and students has been overwhelmingly positive. The daily lesson format consists of 45-60 minutes per day, four days a week. Pilot participants complete a survey after each unit.

The next steps for the pilot are:

• Sample kits rotating through all buildings with feedback forms (March);

• Community preview times to be scheduled (April);

• Possible adoption with August training and materials available for the 2010-2011 school year;

• If adopted, district-wide implementation would occur for the 2011-2012 school year.
