WAlkabout Wednesdays!

On Wednesday, September 3rd, we started "Walkabout Wednesdays"!  We began with a focus on differentiated instruction, as well as other great ideas worth sharing and stealing!  Through our debrief discussion, there were 3 common themes throughout the day: activities to meet various learning styles, formative assessment, and classroom management.  We are looking forward to a year of collaboration and sharing with our walks!

Instructional Spotlight:
Ms. Gist

Ms.Gist is beginning her 8th year here at Liberty Middle.  She teaches language arts, and sponsors First Priority. She is extremely organized, and uses various teaching methods to reach all students.  She has  recently collaborated with other 7th grade teachers to create a cross-curricular BEFORE strategy. Look below at the pictures! She enjoys using journal prompts for writing.  Connect in room 232 with Ms. Gist to learn how this strategy can work for you!
