Teaching with Primary Sources

Duke Ellington: American Legend

About Me

kelly placematt wdowiarzAbout us:  It is our expectation that students will reach their highest level of potential by learning, practicing and mastering a set of skills and attitudes that are central to success in their academic and personal lives. This will be accomplished by implementing various appropriate teaching and learning strategies, appropriate use of technology, and multiple forms of assessment. Students can expect to work in groups, as well as independently. It is our belief that all students can be successful in reading and writing through hard work and perseverance. By doing so, all students will experience continuous learning experiences that will emphasize and deepen their academic powers.
