Amazing example of great teaching and phenomenal learning. Over the past couple of weeks there have been so many phenomenal examples of great teaching and learning in RCPS that I have to write about them. Examples reflective of the work in our two primary schools. Examples from our intermediate school. Great examples that dispel the story that has rumbled through the community at the middle school. And all these examples are demonstrations of the excellence of our K-12 district.
In our K-2 primary schools, evidence reflects the dedication and perseverance of our adults. Throughout both schools you’ll find examples of writing, math and art. In classrooms kindergarteners are writing not just sentences but paragraphs. Students are engaged in learning using Chromebooks, to not just play games, but to read, learn math and study science. Students took to the outside garden for science lessons or made it to Spartan Arena for physical education activities.
Intermediate school students worked in small groups collaborating on book studies. Students having fun learning math with physical challenges embedded. Students worked independently on book reports, math lessons and science exploration. Students enjoyed a film after completing a book study to truly reflect on the reading and see empathy hard at work. Teachers interwove technology into students learning.
At our middle school students actively engaged in groups or worked independently to learn about King Henry VIII or WWII (I was informed that this was a student learning initiative). Students were discussing Bloody Mary. Great music permeated the air. Art connected with writing and presentation again demonstrated strong lesson planning and student engagement.
