Common Core Learning Standards & Assessments - ELA

Writing Narrative Writing: Developing Standards Based Instruction that Inspires and Engages our Students Description: Narrative writing, the text type of storytelling, can inspire young writers to author their own lives or create stories the world needs to hear- and students can do this deep, meaningful work (in all grade levels!) within the very specific narrative standards. Join us as we consider the many modes of the genre and design writing opportunities and experiences tailored to your grade level and students as we create learning opportunities for students to grow through authentic, meaningful writing experiences. Teachers will walk away with: • A narrative writing toolkit to support both whole group teaching and conferences • A plan for approaching narrative writing including goals and teaching points • Suggestions for mentor texts and anchor charts Materials: Notebook Dates: Grades K-8: July 21, 2015 or Sept. 29, 2015 or Grades 3-5: October 8, 2015 or Grades 6-8: October 27, 2015 Time: 8 am registration and coffee, 8:30 am-3 pm program, lunch on your own Audience: Classroom teachers and ELA/reading teachers Location: SWBOCES, 450 Mamaroneck Avenue, 3rd Floor, Harrison, NY 10528 Fee: $239 per participant for CoSer 555 members $287 per participant for CoSer 555 non-members Presenter: Patty McGee Contact: Anna Marie Brancucci 914-345-8500, ext. 3125 abrancucci@swboces.org Informational Writing in the age of Common Core K-2 Description: Our young learners have passions! This one-day course will explore informational writing in the early grades. The writing process is unique to our K-2 learners. We will unpack the standards and consider how they fit with their writing process. The standards are specific in structure and language and the art is in the implementation of the standards while keeping student voice and passion. We will look at structures of our instructional practices that will support the standards and ways to facilitate student growth through meaningful, authentic writing experiences. Participants will leave with: • An understanding of the Informational Writing Standards • Sample unit goals and strategies to guide student writers • Strategies for K-2 informational writers • An authentic writing experience • Sample writing to use in mini-lessons, small groups and/or conferences • Sample anchor charts • Assessment tools for students and teachers Date: July 27, 2015 or Nov. 6, 2015 Time: 8 am registration and coffee, 8:30 am-3 pm program, lunch on your own Audience: Grades K-2 teachers Location: SWBOCES, 450 Mamaroneck Avenue, 3rd Floor, Harrison, NY 10528 Fee: $239 per participant for CoSer 555 members $287 per participant for CoSer 555 non-members Presenter: Julie Budzinski-Flores Contact: Anna Marie Brancucci 914-345-8500, ext. 3125 abrancucci@swboces.org 24
