Literacy

Teachers at Green Bay School have been working since 2008 on improving our students' written language skills.  We have been using asTTle as our assessment tool, for Years 4-8 students, and the English exemplars for Y1-3.  We are working towards training our students to be able to know what their level of achievment is, know where they are heading in order to meet the expected benchmark, and know how to plan their next steps for learning.
