Nina will meet with Humanities teachers to make the final decision regarding ELA support.  Teachers involved will be rescheduled to teach reading comprehension, vocabulary and writing.
Map Reflections-
•    making it a regular part of writing assessment
•    Teachers need to make sure students have something to write about
•    Use questions from reflection…make into a paragraph…finish for homework…graphic organizers…gather evidence…integrated arts available in community room for help with gathering evidence
8th grade?  Transition meetings + MAP meetings + graduation speeches
Portfolio Requirements-numbers?  Variety?
Teachers will decide in department meetings next week what to include in portfolios
