This week students completed the MAP assessment, which will provide our teachers with important data as to their academic skills and current strengths. We are looking forward to using this data to guide instruction in the weeks ahead. You should expect to receive your student's score report as well as a more detailed description of MAP in the next two weeks.
In addition to MAP, our students were actively engaged in learning across the disciplines this week. Dr. Mason, our coaches and I had the privilege of observing all of our MYP classrooms, where students were using their laptops in a variety of different ways to enhance their learning. The laptops allowed our students to engage in an interactive online quiz in one classroom to facilitating a series of problem solving exercises via the Pearson platform in another. As we debriefed and discussed our observations, all of us were excited about the increased student engagement and the positive impact the computers have had thus far. We are excited to see the continued benefits of our one-to-one initiative as the year unfolds!
