  • Students will be more confident when they understand what they are expected to produce—the prompt—and what high quality looks like—the scoring guide.
  • What makes an effective writing prompt, what makes an effective scoring guide, and the sequence of an integrated literacy unit.

How the Patterns in the Standards Can Help You Integrate Your Literacy Instruction

2021-10-18T00:40:22+00:00

In this article you will learn…

  • The stated purpose of the Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts and Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects is to provide a set of standards for the states to use in supporting all students to be college and career ready in literacy no later than the end of high school.
  • A college and career ready student has the skills in reading, writing, speaking, and listening to access information by reading and researching a variety of sources, analyze information by critiquing, clarifying, examining, and discussing it, and apply their new learning by communicating it to others through written and spoken language.
  • For conceptual clarity, the authors divided the standards into the four literacy strands but make it clear that they should be integrated in the classroom and provide clear learning progressions, embedded skills within the standards, and correlations between the standards that support conceptual redundancy.
