6+1 Moving to the Spruce Mountain High School

On November 7, the south and north campuses of the Spruce Mountain High School met to discuss next steps in the district wide literacy initiative.

The afternoon was spent reviewing the 6 + 1 rubric and then selecting - by content areas - those traits most necessary for particular contents.

The hope is to create a common vocabulary and focus in writing that will scaffold students' understanding of the writing process as well as boost their comprehension of content.


Literacy team members facilitated the conversations and shared examples of exit tickets, quick writes and other writing in their content areas.  

Following are the notes taken when debriefing by content areas. 

Thank you for all of your hard work:)
