Give Your Students Better Writing FeedbackYour feedback probably stinks nothing personal ;). More commonly, students receive feedback but it doesn’t do a whole lot of good. Kluger and DeNisi conducted a meta-analysis of studies of feedback and found that the average effect of writing feedback intervention on performance was quite positive.. However, 38 percent of the time the control group actually outperformed the feedback groups …www.betterwritingfeedback.com

SUCCESS 10/11/19

Hello everyone!

We have been so dazzled by our beautiful new home that it does not seem possible that our first SUCCESS DAY is tomorrow.!  The dust is settling and solid things are happening up and down our halls.  How great is it that our first SUCCESS day falls just as we are really getting into “heavy duty” instruction and learning?   This will allow us to chart our work for the year to really make a difference with our students and shine in our community!On your planning period tomorrow please come to the Faculty Conference room just off of the teacher resource room.  Run to our meeting as fast as you can, because we have food to eat and things to accomplish!If you can access your amazing work from the last few years- forms, matrices, PBLs, or even anecdotes- please bring them along so we can look at our foundation as we build our work for this year.  Of course, just like in your classroom, be sure to have pen and paper to jot down ideas and plan with us.  If you are new to this work, have no fears- what we are after this year is just good solid teaching leading to genuine learning throughout our school.We can make a difference together as we build our new school and new ways of doing things here on our Oak Hill Campus.  No matter where you are in “the work” -or what experiences you have had in the past- all of us collectively have an amazing opportunity to have a positive lasting impact in the lives of so many right here at OHMS- and beyond!Our AGENDA is attached- read it over and get excited with me as we get ready to SHINE!George

From Terry George

 

The Great American Solar Eclipse- Partial Eclipse in WV

 

The Great American Solar Eclipse will be a total eclipse for some during its coast to coast path across the United States on Monday, August 21, 2017.   In West Virginia, about 90% of the sun will be covered- a greater percentage will be covered in the southern parts of the state, less in the northern parts.  The eclipse will begin in Huntington at about 1:01 p.pm, but will not begin in the eastern panhandle until about 1:10 p.m.  Visit the Time and Date website and type the name of your town or a town near you to get more specific information about when the eclipse will occur in your area.  The site also includes an animation of what to expect and when to expect the various phases of the eclipse.   Additionally, WVU has compiled a list of resources on a website to assist educators in preparing for and teaching about eclipses, see The Great American Solar Eclipse.

 

IMPORTANT SAFETY MESSAGE- The human eye is very sensitive, and exposure to direct sunlight can damage the eye.  Never are we more tempted to look directly at the sun than during a solar eclipse.  Students should be cautioned about looking directly at the sun; fortunately, there are several options for viewing a solar eclipse safely.   Visit the NASA How to View the 2017 Solar Eclipse Safely site for details.  Links to safety videos are also included on the WVU Great American Solar Eclipse web site as well
