On February 27, 2019, representatives from Jackson County, Wolfe County, Breathitt County, and the Collaborative for Teaching and Learning (CTL) conducted literacy walkthroughs throughout the district. Teams visited classrooms at the Early Childhood, Elementary, Middle and High School levels and provided feedback on literacy practices observed. This series of walkthroughs will serve as a baseline for growth throughout the implementation of the Striving Readers grant to help support embedding literacy into all classrooms.
Teams began the day with an overview of the walkthrough instrument at the BHS library and then dispersed to Marie Roberts-Caney Elementary, Highland Turner Elementary, LBJ Elementary, and Breathitt High. Following their walkthroughs, teams provided school and district level feedback that will be used to compile an overview and next steps report.
