• 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
