the reason they are provided with time to work together,
the reason they are asked to focus on certain topics and complete specific tasks, is so that when they return to their classrooms they will possess and utilize an expanded repertoire of skills, strategies, materials, and ideas to impact student achievement in a postivie way."

"As an administration we set a school wide SMART goal to implement the Language Arts Common Core by having all departments collaborate with the librarian, Mrs. Porter, two times a year. The goal is to imbed reading and writing in their current curriculum. This has been a great success this first year of the plan to see teacher's developiong and enhancing their lessons with literacy as the foundation."
~ Jim Judd, Principal of Rocky Mountain Middle School "The lexile program through the library has helped focus the Language Arts Departments requirement to increase the complexity and rigor of text for students. The program has also helped us examine and discuss in our PLC the level of reading materials we currently use and as we choose new and additional text that will both challenge students and be at appropriate reading levels. In addition, students themselves have been highly motivated to see their Lexile scores increase."
