  • Devin these are the skills used in the workplace
  • Lisa The 4 areas of writing in CC directly correlate with the college & career readiness standards. Text type – the kind of writing – is it intended to tell a story? Inform? Production – its all about editing and the process itself to make it presentable Research – this is where the 21 st century skills come in to have student know how to research, cite sources, recall, pull info from research Range – its about increasing their ability to focus for long periods time to write a decent piece
  • Lisa CC puts everything into 3 buckets – so we ’ve gotten rid of that laundry list of genres. Only 3 areas – teachers choose genres to teach that text type
  • Lisa EXPOSITORY WRITING NARRATIVES Based on that last slide, you can see how it is impacting the percentages of what we are now supposed to focus on. This is important. Our CCSS are finally aligned to NAEP. Persuade & explain are expos – 65% here…. Bigger push for expository reading and writing in CC. More expos writing that is required at each grade level…look at grade 12 – only 20% is narrative. Notice the decreasing emphasis on writing to convey an experience (narrative), and the increase in writing to persuade or explain.
  • Lisa How many of you are aware of Appendix C? This is really good to use to compare district anchor papers – working smarter and not harder….they have given you the EXEMPLARS…..this is the NASA philosophy.

  • Lisa Suggestions: Can have an open blog and use student pseudonyms Identify and rotate student editors to help stronger students or motivate others Understand & respect multiple POV Develop novel ideas Synthesize and evaluate thoughts of others “ listen” in communication Engage in collaboration & complex dialogue Advantages of using web tools for editing or for adding a little flair when they need it Looking up definitions, synonyms, antonyms – using lexipedia, Instagrok or visuwords to see words, hear them spoken Instagrok – fast facts, area for journaling; teacher can set up an entire class and allow journals, images, videos, concept map, websites Wordle/Tagxedo – paste in text or post web link/page; way to share writing compositions and research assignments (CREATIVITY) and (CRITICAL THINKING) via word frequency that allow for main ideas, making predictions, critiquing writing Use them to activate prior knowledge – brainstorm with students what they know. Self assessment – students writing words they know as a pre and post.
