Instructional Plan

Teacher with students raising hands

Grenada Middle School will implement the following strategies for the 2022-2023 School Year: 

  • IReady will still be the gap closer (diagnostic test in Aug). All students will be required to complete 8 lessons in ELA and math each nine weeks.

  • 6th and 7th grade Science, social studies, Cyber Foundations and computer science will require students to work one day a week in class. A schedule will be made out for the rest of the non-tested teachers for IReady.

  • Comprehensive DCAs (District Commons Assessments) each nine weeks provided by CASE.

  • 21st Century and IReady tutoring after school.

  • Social studies teachers will be using close reads each week to help increase reading comprehension. 

  • 6th and 7th grade science will help prepare students for 8th grade Science.

  • Give students plenty of feedback (7 test grades and 10 daily).

  • Meaningful reward system set in place.

  • Each student will have an individual goal set in English and math.  These goals will be set based on last year’s performance on the MAAP test. These goals will be posted in each classroom on a data wall. These data walls will allow students to view where they are currently performing and show them where they need to be to achieve optimal success. These will be updated after mini DCAs as well as DCAs.

  • All nine weeks test will be taken on computer and we will administer them exactly as we administer MAAP (Mississippi Academic Assessment Program) tests. 

  • Weekly assessments will be taken on computer in English and math. We feel that familiarizing the students to using the computer will be beneficial as this will be the way we are tested in the spring.
