Our ATI Journey
Our challenge was improving the Writer's Workshop with an emphasis on content and style.
This is also an area of concern in our school, as well as our district, according to the 2009 Benchmark data for both third and fourth grades.
The big idea is if our students can express themselves
more clearly, they will be able to demonstrate a better
understanding in literacy. This will lead to highly
productive members of society who will be able to work
collaboratively with future colleagues.
Lucy Calkins wrote, "as human beings we write to communicate, plan, petition, remember, announce, list, imagine... but above all, we write to hold our lives in our hands and to make something of them.
That's why!

In Mrs. Motley's class,
there was a gain of 1.5 points in both content and style!
In Mrs. Forehand's class,
there was a gain of 1.6 points in content and 1.8 points in style!
We plan on starting the
year off with the
Step-Up to Writing program.
Our fourth grade team is also visiting Barb McClurry from the Conway School District to discuss "backwards planning" for our Writing Workshop.
ALL kids can learn to write
with style!
Time to plan
We are also presenting our findings to the entire faculty in August.
Wish us Luck!
