Here is an update regarding our non-tech literacy world... teachers are continuing to test the students that you recommended as being "at risk" due to reading skill level, with a view to setting up guided reading groups and book clubs in January. It's a long process, but I am sure it will be worth it! If anyone is willing to run one of these groups for 20 minutes a day during your English class, please let me know. We will be trying to make up small groups of students at the same level, and these may well include students from different classes. Thank you for your help with this aspect of our School Improvement Plan!
OK - back to the IT world!
