Common Core Learning Standards & Assessments - ELA

Keeping the Fun and Passion in Opinion Writing in the Age of Common Core and Assessment; Grades 3-8 Description:Our young writers have opinions and ideas they are ready to share. This one day course will explore opinion writing in the early grades. 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 and passion through meaningful, authentic writing experiences. Participants will leave with: • An understanding of the Opinion Writing Standards • Sample unit goals and strategies to guide student writers • Strategies for 3-5 opinion 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 Dates: Grades 3-5: July 28, 2015 or Jan. 7, 2016 or Grades 6-8: or July 28, 2015 OR Jan. 29, 2016 Time: 8 am registration and coffee, 8:30 am-3 pm program, lunch on your own Audience: Grades 3-8 educators 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.orgmailto:abrancucci@swboces.org A Guide to Kindergarten Writing: Narrative, Informative and Opinion Writing Description: Narrative writing is often the favorite writing genre of both students and teachers. How can we improve our own practice of this much loved genre while simultaneously improving student outcomes? Informative writing is often the most interesting writing genre for youngsters. How can we take advantage of their fascination while also improving their performance? Opinion writing is often the most challenging writing genre for both students and teachers. How can we meet the challenges of this genre and build independent writers? Join us for this three-day series, or attend one session a la carte. Each day will focus solely on our youngest writers and cover several areas. We will work to deepen our understanding of performance outcomes. We will collaborate with fellow participants to look at examples of student writing and then learn some conferencing moves revolving around, "What can I teach this writer?" Time will also be spent on discussing feedback measures and how the implementation of these tools can help to promote student writing proficiency. Materials: Bring student work samples.
