PROWL Time Addendum

PROWL TIME

Intervention Plan

What is it?

PROWL Time is intervention time. It is time that has been set aside to help reinforce, review, and reteach essential core standards and skills to all students. Departments that are using PLC’s to gather and analyze assessment data for specific re-teaching will be able to pull specific students who have struggled on key standards or skills. PROWL Time will also include an opportunity for individual intervention based on students’ specific needs for make-up, tutoring, and testing. , elective classes will be able to offer enrichment activities based on state standards that can serve as a review, introduce new content, and promote elective classes and programs throughout the school.

How does it work?

Core Departments (L.A., S.S., Math, Science) will select 2 Essential Standards/Skills for each quarter (8 for the year). Department teams will create an activity for each standard/skill that introduces, reviews, or reinforces that standard. Teachers will guide their own PROWL class through the activity on the specified Tuesday for each core subject. Some departments will offer specific review/re-teaching of recent content covered in class. Students will be assigned to these sessions based on mastery level. Elective classes will select 2 Essential Standards/Skills for the quarter. Elective Teachers will create 1-2 enrichment activities based on their essential standards/skills that introduce, reinforce, and promote their program. Prowl teachers will select the enrichment activity of their choice to share with their class on the specified Thursdays. On occasion, school-wide activities will take place during PROWL time. These may include lessons on emergency preparedness, anti-bullying, red-ribbon week, etc.

When is it?

PROWL Time will run on a weekly basis on Tuesdays and Thursdays for 30 minutes directly after 2nd Period. Tuesdays will be reserved for standards/skills intervention with students’ PROWL teacher or an assigned review/re-teach session with a Math or Science teacher. On Thursdays, students will rotate weekly between individual intervention and an elective enrichment lesson. Students’ PROWL teacher will direct both activities.
