10-second review, Grades 3, 4 and 5: Opinions, informative writing and narrative writing. Introduce topic, details, provide sense of closure. Short research. From simple notes to summaries and paraphrases. Plan, revise, edit. Purpose and audience.
Title: “CCSSI (
Standards Initiative) for English Language Arts and Literacy in History/Social Studies and Science.” March 10, 2010, p. 12, 13. You will find the standards at http://www.corestandards.org/ Common Core State
Plan, revise, edit and rewrite.
Use technology to produce and publish.
Short research. Different aspects of a topic. Use several sources.
Summarize or paraphrase information in notes. Basic bibliographic information.
Write in response to literature and informational text. Describe what they have learned.
Comment: Again, I suggest that teachers will, first, have to explain clearly for themselves the meaning and implications for each standard. Next they will have to identify methods and materials to achieve the standards. Finally, they must determine how to continue work on the standard throughout the year. One and done will not do it.
