L.A. PLC Meeting Minutes 1-14-15 Present: Tonya Edwards, Lori Houchens, Alicia Judd, Beth Davidson, Kelli Barrett, Heather Gardner, and Lori Downs Main topics of discussion: Curriculum for next year = Discussion included possibilities and ideas for next school year…such as dividing grammar, reading, and writing into different classes (or some new combination). In an effort to improve deficits, opinions were heard concerning the pros and cons of the above proposal/idea. More discussion will continue at a later date. Edgenuity = While we view this as a useful program, we discussed ways to make it more practical and beneficial for individual teacher use. Some of us feel we need more training to utilize it to its full potential. Score Analysis = Copies were made to distribute to the L.A. department. Discussion followed. Writing samples of high, medium, and low will be turned into the office. Essays, open responses, and emphasis on paragraph development are three major writing areas in which we are focusing.
