JES Teachers Take "Learning Walks"

K-1 Teachers at Jarvisburg Elementary look on as colleague, Carly Osmon, facilitates student discussion of a vocabulary pre-activation strategy.  This activity was part of a reading comprehension lesson focused on comparing and contrasting details presented by two informational texts.  JES teachers are experimenting with learning walks as a way to grow in their knowledge and skill for implementing best teaching practices.  By observing the parts of a 90 minute reading block in action, educators learn from each other's strengths to improve on their own instruction.
