The preK-grade 12 staff spent productive hours together on Friday afternoon following the 11:15 dismissal of students. As a whole group we gathered to learn from specific staff members about how they are working with students using active reading strategies.
Grade-level and content groups then split off to focus on academic vocabulary. More specifically, they created a common understanding of academic vocabulary, developed a preK-grade 12 working list of academic vocabulary, and discussed ways in which they could increase student understanding of these important terms. For reference, content vocabulary is roughly defined as those words specific and meaningful to a particular subject (i.e. poem, exponent, nucleus), while academic vocabulary transcend a given subject, frequently occur, and are critical to academic success (i.e. explore, evaluate, analyze).
Thank you to our HCS alumni panel who came back to speak to our seniors about life beyond high school. Keep following your dreams, we hope to see you again soon!
