Writing Across Text Types Grades 3-5

Dates: Dec 12 2017 8:30AM - Dec 12 2017 3:00PM

Location: San Joaquin County Office of Education

Participants will see the ELA/ELD Framework in action and how the CCSS ELA/Literacy and ELD standards can be powerfully combined to address the language and learning needs of all students. We will share the development of a sample unit on Keystone Species: Integrated Units of Study, focusing on Environmental Stewardship which incorporates informative, opinion and narrative writing. The unit is organized using the teaching-learning cycle which focuses on these critical phases of writing instruction:

  • Building students’ content knowledge of the topic
  • Digging deeper into language using the ELD standards
  • Constructing texts jointly
  • Writing independently

Our presentations will include video clips, student work, text sets, and our reflections from the implementation of these units in classrooms.
