They represent an elephant…you eat an elephant one bite at a time.16
17 Integrated Model of Literacy Reading and writing are not the same in every content area, but serve specific purposes.Ask participants what purposes writing serves in content areas17California’s Common Core State Standards: Toolkit | Overview17
21 Consistent Subheadings of Writing Standards Text Types and Purposes Students should be able to write effective arguments, informative/explanatory texts, and narratives. Production and Distribution of Writing Students should be able to make their texts appropriate to varying task demands, purposes, and audiences (including writing processes and technology). Research to Build and Present Knowledge Students should learn to conduct research, gather relevant information from multiple sources, and use information in their writing. Range of Writing Students should be able to produce quality writing under a range of demands and circumstances.(Predict then read) - repeat___________________________________________________________________________________Have participants locate the CCSS for ELA handout and find the Writing Standards for their grade level. If the audience includes secondary teachers, have them turn to their subject.Ask participants to call out the first subheading (Text Types and Purposes). Ask how many standards are included under that subheading (3). Note for participants the consistency at EVERY grade level. Do the same with the next three subheadings:Production and Distribution of Writing (3)Research to Build and Present Knowledge (3)Range of Writing (1)The statements under the subheadings were pulled from a presentation by Timothy Shanahan, one of the architects of the CCSS.As participants begin to look at the standards, remind them that every state could add up to 15% to the Common Core State Standards as indicated by the bold and underlined print.HANDOUTS:CCSS for ELA21CCSS: Toolkit | Content and Curriculum, K-12 (ELA) | Mini-Module: Writing21
