Part II of our series on the impact the Common Core State Standards will have on science instruction in the middle grades. In this session, we’ll explore the writing standards for grades 6-8. Learn about the standards themselves, discover resources that can help you modify your instruction to meet them, and join the emerging conversation with other educators. You’ll get the most out of the seminar if you’ve browsed these standards ahead of time. Go to http://corestandards.org/, click on English Language Arts, and scroll to the Writing Standards for Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects 6-12.
