A specific focus will be on the development of  ​evidence, assessment, and progress monitoring and data analysis processes.  We will continue to learn about, implement and reflect on the use of the BCEO Model of Pedagogy, the gradual release of responsibility model and the effective and expected practices.  The high yield strategies of data walls, review and response meetings and learning walks and talks will provide us with a focus on this implementation and the progress of all our students.   In 2016 we will have a specific focus on learning about and modelling effective practices in teaching numeracy.
