The i3 Instructional Coach Team will model a practical, classroom friendly approach to planning interdisciplinary units while implementing Common Core and the new Essential Standards. All activities will model interactive, collaborative, rigorous strategies: Activating prior knowledge, turn and talk, jigsaw, gallery walk, graphic organizers, use of nonfiction text, and ticket out the door are among the strategies that will be utilized.
