GHS Transition Curriculum Planning (2-day)
This is a two-day work session (6-18-18 and 6-19-18)

GHS transition class teachers will examine existing curriculum and high school schedule  with the goal of creating a seamless tiered-transition curriculum in which students can participate and grow as they work toward graduation and life beyond GHS.  

Some items to consider:

1) Development of 3-levels of instruction, focusing on different areas of transition activities;
2) Students sometimes will take the same class twice (how can instruction be differentiated to meet their needs?);
3) How can technology be used by a) teachers, to facilitate communication and understanding of student knowledge between transition classes, and b) students, to create a transition portfolio
4) other?

Participants are responsible for bringing a summary/framework of programs and methods currently used for instruction in these classes.

Visualizing and Verbalizing Training
Participants will:

  • Understand the core components of V & V and  how to implement them during large group and small group instruction
  • Be able to identify students who would benefit from direct instruction in the use of V&V core components
  • Become familiar with V & V instructional tools
"The Visualizing and Verbalizing® (V/V®) program develops concept imagery—the ability to create an imagined or imaged gestalt from language—as a basis for comprehension and higher order thinking. The development of concept imagery improves reading and listening comprehension, memory, oral vocabulary, critical thinking, and writing."
