We continue to be grateful for all of your support last year and this 
year as we take on our ambitious Constructed Response effort to get kids 
reading more informational texts and writing expository essays.

Again this fall, we are doing multiple writing assessments. Students 
have already completed the "English Constructed Response" and will now 
take the "History Constructed Response."  In September over 1,800 
freshman and sophomores read articles and write argumentative essays  
ALL BHS teachers scored student essays and talked about student work. 
All of these efforts have contributed to a sense of collaboration around 
making sure that we provide academic rigor to all of our students.  We 
will do a total of four writing tasks (Constructed Response) throughout 
the school year.

Right now, we're approaching the History Constructed Response writing task.

*_We'll need volunteers on Wednesday October 29th to organize the 
materials for our this effort. Anytime between 8:30 and 11:30 in C323 - 
the PD office. _*
