CANCELED - ISTEP ELA: Addressing the Need to Raise Scores - Grade 10 ELA ISTEP

Across the state we continue to see low ISTEP English scores in the level K-5, 6-8, English 10. You and your school may have tried a variety of strategies, curriculum maps or instructional realignments to address these low scores. In this session, we will discuss why traditional test preparation doesn't work for next generation assessments such as ISTEP. We will address the solution to ‘why do students forget content once they get to ISTEP’. We will talk about how depth of knowledge and surface, deep and transfer learning take place and how we accomplish transfer learning. You will walk away with research-based strategies that engage students in deeper learning of the essential standards for English.


Workshop agenda:
Examine the strategies for surface, deep & transfer learning.
Engage in planning & developing lessons with depth of knowledge in mind.
Examine the research behind how we get students to retain and understand the essential standards.
Engage in planning and implementing best practices for reading, writing, and questioning
