Welcome
 
back
 
to
 
our
 
nal
 
quarter
 
of 
 
learning
 
in
 
the
 
Elementary
 
School
 
at
 
ISM.
 
2013/14
 
Class
 
Placements
 
Over
 
the
 
past
 
month
 
and
 
con
nuing
 
into
 
this
 
nal
 
quarter,
 
we
 
will
 
be
 
spending
 
a
 
large
 
amount
 
of 
me
 
preparing
 
our
 
class
 
lists
 
for
 
2013/14.
 
What
 
criteria
 
is
 
this
 
based
 
upon?
 
For
 
those
 
families
 
that
 
are
 
returning
 
to
 
ISM
 
in
 
August,
 
this
 
is
 
a
 
very
 
valid
 
ques
on.
 
The
 
process
 
of 
 
construc
ng
 
class
 
lists
 
for
 
2013/14
 
has
 
already
 
begun
 
and
 
is
 
one
 
which
 
will
 
con
nue
 
over
 
the
 
coming
 
weeks.
 
Ini
ally,
 
all
 
teachers
 
are
 
involved
 
in
 
discussions,
 
including
 
those
 
from
 
the
 
Learning
 
Support
 
and
 
English
 
as
 
a
 
Second
 
Language
 
(ESL)
 
department,
 
as
 
the
 
class
 
lists
 
are
 
built.
 
Following
 
this,
 
the
 
Guidance
 
Counselors
 
and
 
the
 
Elementary
 
Leadership
 
team
 
look
 
for
 
balance
 
in
 
the
 
groupings
 
in
 
terms
 
of:
 
gender,
 
na
onality,
 
friendship
 
groups,
 
social
 
dynamics,
 
academics,
 
learning
 
styles,
 
and
 
independence.
 
In
 
some
 
educa
on
 
systems
 
students
 
remain
 
with
 
the
 
same
 
cohort
 
or
 
class
 
for
 
a
 
sustained
 
period
 
of 
me
 
in
 
order
 
to
 
promote
 
con
nuity.
 
At
 
ISM,
 
we
 
believe
 
that
 
in
 
order
 
to
 
support
 
our
 
students
 
in
 
becoming
 
self 
directed,
 
adaptable
 
and
 
able
 
to
 
apply
 
their
 
skills
 
(both
 
academic
 
and
 
social)
 
in
 
new
 
situa
ons,
 
a
 
change
 
of 
 
both
 
teacher
 
and
 
class
 
composi
on
 
is
 
more
 
appropriate.
 
This
 
said,
 
rather
 
than
 
dividing
 
a
 
single
 
class
 
ve,
 
six
 
or
 
seven
 
di
ff 
erent
 
ways,
 
we
 
aim
 
to
 
begin
 
with
 
a
 
smaller
 
number,
 
such
 
as
 
a
 
spli
ng
 
a
 
class
 
into
 
three
 
new
 
ones,
 
in
 
order
 
to
 
support
 
friendship
 
groupings
 
and
 
transi
on
 
into
 
a
 
new
 
grade
 
level.
 
Again,
 
this
 
will
 
depend
 
upon
 
the
 
cohort
 
of 
 
students
 
and
 
the
 
criteria
 
listed
 
above.
 
Students
 
need
 
to
 
feel
 
happy
 
and
 
a
 
sense
 
of 
 
belonging
 
at
 
school
 
in
 
order
 
for
 
learning
 
to
 
take
 
place.
 
As
 
such,
 
social
 
group
ings
 
are
 
a
 
cri
cal
 
aspect
 
of 
 
the
 
process.
 
We
 
know
 
that
 
learning
 
is
 
a
 
social
 
ac
vity
 
and
 
that
 
an
 
interac
ve
 
and
 
suppor
ve
 
environment
 
is
 
crucial
 
if 
 
we
 
are
 
to
 
stay
 
true
 
to
 
this
 
learning
 
principle.
 
Ul
mately,
 
we
 
will
 
always
 
place
 
students
 
in
 
a
 
class
 
where
 
we
 
feel
 
their
 
learning
 
will
 
be
 
maximized
 
and
 
they
 
will
 
experience
 
success.
 
Please
 
note
 
that
 
while
 
we
 
are
 
very
 
aware
 
that
 
parents
 
want
 
to
 
ensure
 
the
 
best
 
possible
 
placement
 
for
 
their
 
child
 
consider
ing
 
all
 
the
 
above
 
criteria,
 
we
 
are
 
unable
 
to
 
accept
 
parent
 
requests
 
for
 
placements
 
as
 
this
 
would
 
compromise
 
the
 
internal
 
(Continued on page 2)

process
 
we
 
adhere
 
to.
 
Your
 
support
 
in
 
this
 
area
 
is
 
greatly
 
appreciated.

will

about
 
Targe
Ɵ 
ng Understanding
.
 
If 
 
our
 
goals
 
for
 
our
 
stu
dents
 
are
 
centered
 
on
 
being
 
able
 
to
 
apply
 
what
 
has
 
been
 
learned,
 
as
 
well
 
as
 
support
 
and
 
defend
 
ideas,
 
then
 
what
 
are
 
the
 
implica
ons
 
for
 
classroom
 
instruc
on
 
and
 
assessment?
 
By
 
targe
ng
 
understanding,
 
we
 
as
 
teachers
 
must
 
ask
 
our
selves
 
every
 
day,
 
“is
 
it
 
possible
 
for
 
my
 
students
 
to
 
know
 
lots
 
of 
 
important
 
facts,
 
produce
 
lovely
 
products,
 
or
 
make
 
clev
er
 
guesses
 
on
 
assessments,
 
without
 
really
 
understanding
 
what
 
the
 
facts
 
mean
 
and
 
how
 
they
 
might
 
be
 
interpreted?
 
Al
terna
vely,
 
“could
 
any
 
of 
 
my
 
students
 
fail
 
to
 
meet
 
performance
 
goals,
 
not
 
even
 
complete
 
assigned
 
tasks,
 
yet
 
s
ll
 
grasp
 
the
 
big
 
ideas?”
 
In
 
our
 
discussion
 
on
 
Tuesday,
 
we
 
aim
 
to
 
have
 
a
 
‘workshop’
 
style
 
of 
 
presenta
on,
 
where
 
we
 
can
 
address
 
common
 
misconcep
ons,
 
where
 
parents
 
can
 
talk
 
with
 
each
 
other
 
and
 
ask
 
ques
ons
 
about
 
what
 
teaching
 
for
 
under
standing
 
looks
 
like
 
and
 
what
 
it
 
requires
 
of 
 
the
 
learner.
 
We
 
hope
 
you
 
are
 
able
 
to
 
a
end!
