ELA Shift 5 Worksheet (Document)
After watching this video, educators might ask themselves:
Participants might also work together to create a learning experience that combines carefully scaffolded instruction on the structures of standard English (if helpful, see Lisa Delpit's article Silenced Dialogue) with a task that requires students to synthesize ideas across multiple texts. What prompts, materials, and supports need to be provided so that students become curious and precise investigative reporters who uncover facts, draw conclusions, make arguments, and analyze the work of others?
Academic standards correlations on Teachers' Domain use the Achievement Standards Network (ASN) database of state and national standards, provided to NSDL projects courtesy of JES & Co.
We assign reference terms to each statement within a standards document and to each media resource, and correlations are based upon matches of these terms for a given grade band. If a particular standards document of interest to you is not displayed yet, it most likely has not yet been processed by ASN or by Teachers' Domain. We will be adding social studies and arts correlations over the coming year, and also will be increasing the specificity of alignment.
