Teaching and Learning
At the Mario Umana Academy, we take great pride in holding all students to a high level of academic expectations. As a school, we have fully adopted the Common Core Curriculum, and each teacher works hard to analyze data that helps provide targeted instruction for each class.Our Instructional Focus for 2015-16:The Umana will use graphic organizers as a tool to analyze and synthesize information from multiple sources (e.g. text, video, charts, and images), in order for students to respond to questions using source based evidence and reasoning.
Assessments::In order for teachers to have the greatest insight to the needs of their students, the Umana uses several monitoring assessments throughout the year, including, but not limited to: DIBELS/IDEL, Fountas and Pinnell, TRC, and ANet. For the dates of these assessments and others, please refer to our school calendar.
