ED, planning for improvement [D95]

Riverside/Brookfield Landmark (Jessica Glowinski) reports on Brookfield-La Grange Park elementary schools' plan for improvement.
Many of the goals, all of which were developed with extensive teacher input, seek to standardize certain methods of teaching throughout the grade levels.

For example, one goal in the area of reading and writing is to include an extended writing response question in book quizzes at all levels. Teachers will also be developing a set of reading strategies that they will introduce at all grade levels.

For science, one goal is to introduce at least one experiment per month. A tentative social studies goal—although Superintendent Douglas Rudig said it is not clear if it can be accomplished in one year—is to better align the teaching of the American government system across different grade levels.
