How Does the CBA Fit? CBA should assess what your students have studied and be easy for them to support their ideas CBA can assess writing and social studies content at the same time!
Where do I start? Collaborate with grade level team/library/support staff to plan (See teacher planning form) Decide on content for CBA Plan time frame Bookmark appropriate links gather resources
What Works Regardless of CBA, choose a topic (grade level appropriate that fits with what you are teaching Guide/model students through step by step Differentiate for multiple abilities Partner with staff to support research and writing
Step 1: Pre-teach Introduce the CBA Give the students the background necessary for them to be successful
Step 2: Research Graphic Organizer File pocket folders ( what goes into the folders ?) It is OK to work through the graphic organizers in pairs, small groups, or even direct instruction as long as the final product is the students work!
Step 3: Support Students work to complete research and graphic organizer Students begin writing process: Review writing expectations (Step Up to Writing) and Scoring Rubrics for the CBA Conference to check on progress and help students complete task

Federally Recognized Native Tribes in Washington State
Government–to–Government Relations Treaties between the United States and Native Tribes established the status of tribes as Native Sovereign Nations. Treaties in the Washington Territory were signed in 1854-55.
The Washington Adventure Native Americans In the old days…..we relied on the baskets, the rivers, the lands, the roots, the berries, the fish, and the animals. Today, we live the [modern] life, but our hearts still travel where our ancestors lived and died. Liichaat Chehalis, A Time of Tribal Gathering: An Intertribal Welcome
Children were encouraged to develop strict discipline and a high regard for sharing. When a girl picked her first berries and dug her first roots, they were given away to an elder so she would share her future success. When a child carried water for the home, an elder would give compliments, pretending to taste meat in water carried by a boy or berries in that of a girl. The child was encouraged not to be lazy and to grow straight like a sapling. -- Mourning Dove Christine Quintasket, (1888-1936) Salish Traditional Teaching
