Communication and Collaboration

This year, one of River Vale's district goals is to continue focusing on the 4Cs, but specifically on improving collaboration and communication skills among our students, and really defining what that means. We are ensuring that our students are equipped with the necessary tools to be successful in the undefined world that lies ahead of them. Our staff has developed district-generated rubrics/learning progressions by grade-level spans on collaboration and communication. We are utilizing these rubrics to reach common definitions of what expert communication and collaboration look like. Our teachers are continuously modeling these skills and practicing using the rubrics with their students. All staff members have been utilizing these rubrics in their classrooms and creating lessons/projects that promote communication and/or collaboration.
