Tuesday, June 27 Materials - Middle School Coaching Pilot

All session materials include below

ELA

This sesion explores how supporting all students in accessing complex text involves the confluence of Reading and Language standards, including work at the sentence level, work with vocabulary, and carefully crafted, scaffolded, and aligned text dependent questions.

ELA Content Coaches explore how close reading of complex text, sentence deconstruction, and work with “juicy sentences” support struggling students in accessing complex text. Participants explore the confluence of Reading and Language Standards to support sentence work and standards-aligned text dependent question development.

Math

These sessions address the instructional shift of rigor (using example tasks, lessons, and assessments), the interplay between the mathematical practices and the three aspects of rigor, and how to evaluate lessons for alignment to rigor and the practices. 

This session begins with an examination of the “Rigor” shift by asking Math Content Coaches to reconsider the traditional definition of rigor. Once again, participants will engage in carefully selected tasks in order to more deeply understand the aspects of rigor in the Standards. They will also learn to identify aspects of rigor in an aligned unit of instruction.
