This year we will continue to focus on increasing student literacy skills. This will include supporting students with improving their reading comprehension skills. We will continue to explicitly teaching 6 comprehension strategies in our classrooms and encouraging students to assess themselves on their ability to use these strategies. Our students will continue to take part in inquiry based projects which promote reading for a purpose. As our students engage in these activities, we observe, ask questions, and take notes on how students are using these strategies in authentic situations.
