Transcript

  • 1. Reorganizing the Pacing Guide
  • 2. Why reorganize?
    When we put stories into Curriculum Manager, we need to structure them as “units”
    Don’t want too many stories in a “unit” or there will be too many targets and resources and the tool won’t be useful
  • 3. January 31stInservice
    Expected to spend time inputing information
    Cannot input targets/resources until units are created and sequenced (title, month, # of days)
    So… we need to finalize a sequence
  • 4. 1. Highlight Skills in Pacing Guide
    Yellow -- Literary Terms
    Green -- Reading Strategies
    Pink -- Writing Skills/Misc.
  • 5. 2. Reading Difficulty Level
    Each unit has a “Skills Trace” at the beginning of the unit
    Label each story’s difficulty level on pacing guide so that later you can easily check for balance in rigor
  • 6. 3. Determine Order
    Plot
    Setting
    Characters
    Characterization
    Theme/Tone/Mood
    May Review
    Text Organization, Sources, Research Paper, and novel placement varies by grade, dependent on lab time
  • 7. Cut and Categorize
    Large surface
    Cut each story out of the pacing guide
    Categorize by skills
    (see “Determining Order”)
  • 8. Odd Balls/Extras
    These can be interspersed between solidified units as exposures.
    So it might go…
    Plot
    Setting
    Poems
    Characters
    Characterization
    Inferences
    Theme
    Examples:
    Poetry
    Inferences
    POV
    Order
  • 9. May curriculum
    Review a variety of skills and strategies using the stories from the pacing guide.
    After MAP testing
    Meant for skills to be reviewed, NOT any stories where there is a skill they are seeing for the first time
  • 10. Curriculum Manager
    Each story will be put in as a unit
    Skill #- “Story”
    Plot 1- “Raymond’s Run”
    Plot 2- “The Monkey’s Paw”
    Setting 1- “Mother in Manville”
