Students will learn how to use Thinking Maps (graphic organizers) to help them plan, edit, and revise their writing assignments. We use the Flee map the most which is a combination of a tree and flow map.
All writing assignments are scored using the AZMerit rubric. Grade level/proficient is considered a 3 in Focus, Ideas, and Organization, as well as in evidence and elaboration. In Conventions 2's is grade level.
Students receive reading, writing or math support. MTSS can also be a time for enrichment.
