The mission of PS/MS 47Q, The Chris Galas School, is to work collaboratively with other educators, parents, and the Broad Channel Community to foster a safe and nurturing environment that meets the needs of ALL students. We will work together to teach students to take ownership of their own learning through the use of student led activities and productive struggle.
The vision of PS/MS 47Q, The Chris Galas School, is to create students who are prepared to be independent, productive members of an increasingly diverse, globalized, and complex world.
Students will demonstrate understanding of the question/prompt by using relevant and accurate evidence that connects to fulfilling the requirements of the task. Answer the question that is being asked!
Our focus is on building teacher capacity to effectively plan for inquiry based lessons that include high level questions which will increase deep discussion and promote student engagement, independence, and higher order thinking skills (student agency) to increase achievement in ELA and Math.
