9th Grade Literature

The Ninth grade team decided to use Edgenuity as a form of remediation and review for the upcoming Georgia Milestone Exam. This plan was made available to students on March 10, 2016 by all teachers. Additionally, at the last PLC meeting each teacher was instructed to provide their class with a benchmark on USA Test prep in order for teachers to be able to gauge what standards needed to be reviewed in class. All benchmarks should be completed no later than Monday April 18, 2016 so that the data can be discussed in the upcoming PLC meeting.  The data from the benchmarks will then inform our lesson plans in class remediation.
