At Eaton Middle School we have a number of initiatives that were started last year that will continue to grow this year. The largest initiative is our Claim Evidence Reasoning (CER) piece, which is a strategy implemented building wide to provide students with a method to comprehend and write at a higher level regarding a passage of informational text. This initiative was launched last year and I look forward to seeing what level our students and teachers will advance this to this year. Our summative and formative assessments will strengthen and provide "real" feedback.
This school year brings back so many "Highly Qualified Teachers" at EMS and we welcome two new educators as well. This is not only an exciting time to be a student at EMS but also a great time to be a teacher where we will work together to provide a challenging rigorous curriculum every day.
So what are we going to do with one of the greatest opportunities and responsibilities we could ever ask for........ Attack!
