Reorganizing the pacing guide

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