  1. In your group of four, you will read one of two readings that inform you about Title 1 Law and your responsibilities. Two of you will read What is Title 1 and two of you will read Title 1 Special Populations requirements.Take notes on the article you read, confer with your partner, and be prepared to report what your group members. 
  2. Share questions you have about how your schools are functioning in relationship to what you have learned within a whole class discussion. 

  3. Working individually,  fill out the compliance questionnaire used by the USBE to evaluate school compliance with Titlle 1 Law. Discuss your questions and learning within your group.
