Topic 1:  Participants will get a quick review of the changes in PARCC ELA for this year. More time will be spent looking at strategies for increasing Tier II vocabulary of students and discussing evidence that provides context clues in PARCC examples. At least some time will also be used looking at creating text - dependent questions and a checklist to verify that you have done so. It will be necessary to bring a laptop and a copy of your CCSS (standards).

Topic 2: Participants will get a quick review of the changes in PARCC ELA for this year. More time will be spent looking at the elements of argumentative writing. We will read Writing Standard 1 closely and then discuss a (three- passage) Research Simulation Task to see what is expected of the students on PARCC. It will be necessary to bring a laptop and a copy of your CCSS (standards).

Topic 3: Participants will get a quick review of the changes in PARCC ELA for this year. More time will be spent looking at the Integration standards (standards 7- 9 in each grade level) that require analysis of paired passages. Examples will be reviewed and discussed from PARCC released tasks with student writing in mind. It will be necessary to bring a laptop and a copy of your CCSS (standards).
