Literacy for All: Workshop Materials for Next Year (Literacy Team Implementation)Teachers will work in grade level/department PLCS to view four of the "6 Shifts" in Common Core Transition. Even though these video clips are geared towards English Language Arts, each content area teacher should be incorporating literacy strategies into their instruction. Teachers will view the videos, and then work together to complete the video guides for each clip. Completed copies of the video guide should either be printed out and submitted to the department/grade level's curriculum facilitator, or they can be completed electronically and emailed to caswellcommoncoreteam@gmail.com to be checked by a team member.
