  • 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 Kindergarten – argumentative/opinion EXPLANATORY
