Arguments, Opinions, and UGs, oh my! What the Common Core doesn’t tell you in Writing Standard 1

July 14, 2015

Are you getting Writing Standard 1 right? Learn what the research says about how to develop expertise in this genre of writing –building an understanding of (persuasive) schema; developing stronger writing prompts for the 3 argument types (fact-based, judgment-based, policy-based); and teaching students how to find and use the most relevant evidence (text, data, etc.) needed to support each argument/opinion type. Multiple unit and assessment planning tools and sample assessment prompts will be provided for all content areas and grade levels. Karin’s work with learning progressions can also be included to illustrate progress monitoring within and across school years.
