Second Reading Wonders Leadership Retreat Brings Berlin-Boylston Elementary Teachers to Holy across

Teacher representatives from grades K-5, Special Education, and literacy attended the second of a two-part retreat sponsored by McGraw-Hill on Thursday, May14th to take a deeper dive into writing and assessment.  During the writing session, the teachers explored techniques, technologies, and time-savers all designed to create close reading opportunities that prepare learners to write about their reading. 

The teachers also looked at the thinking required by sample standards-based questions, the skills students need to thrive on standardized assessments such as PARCC, and the instruction needed to be provided to
students in order to support their reading and writing growth.  

The two teams will take back their learning from the day to colleagues in their respective buildings.
