Here's something to celebrate - Della Lamb Charter School has observed amazing progress in their second graders' writing skills! Principal Jennifer Wilson shared the following information with us in a recent email:
"During the 2010-2011 school year, Della Lamb Charter School began implementing the Language for Writing program for all second grade students. All second grade students were placed at Lesson 1 in Language for Writing at the beginning of the school year." During the 2011-2012 school year, significant growth in its second grade students was observed, as measured by a Quarterly Writing Assessment. The school-level writing assessment is directly aligned to the Missouri Grade Level Expectations and the Common Core State Standards. The school expects to see similar gains reflected on the annual state assessment for students who have completed the Language for Writing program.
