Its been a busy few days with the adjustment to our new schedule and extended time.
At the high school, we have chosen to create a new classtime with our extra minutes – calling it Anchor Time. The idea is to provide students with remediation on concepts they have not mastered. When students have shown improvement in their Anchor class, they may be rotated to another teacher – either to receive more remediation or enchriment / challenge activities. Please feel free to voice your ideas and concerns via email and I will pass suggestions along to our administration. My experience, so far, has been very beneficial to my students.
