To allow for differentiated instruction techniques, several strategies will be modeled to help your students with the correct structure and organization needed to answer question with textual based evidence to receive the two points without being too formulaic.   A  student friendly checklist/rubric will be  given to allow your kids to verify they have done the requirements needed to score a two on these type of questions.  

(For those of you who are not aware, these type of questions will receive one point for correctly answering the question that is being asked and a second point for textual evidence that both supports the answer and ties directly to the question.)

 

PART FIVE: EXTENDED/ESSAY RESPONSE 5/10 POINTS QUESTIONS

AUDIENCE:  ALL READING/ELA TEACHERS  

DATES YOU WILL RECEIVE  EMAILS OF THESE VIDEO SESSIONS AND ACCOMPANYING FILES:

 AUGUST 4TH -AUGUST 14TH, 2022

i WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THAT SCIENCE  AND SOCIAL STUDIES TEACHERS SIGN UP FOR THIS SESSION AS WELL TO PROVIDE STUDENTS MORE OPPORTUNITIES TO PRACTICE AND ACCEL AT EXTENDED/ESSAY RESPONSE TYPE QUESTIONS.  

A suggested timeline will be shared on how to effectively increase the expectations and level of rigor for these types of questions so that they are taught as a process over time.  It is unrealistic and unreasonable to ask students to be writing 5/10 point questions every week or worse yet, every day from the very beginning of the school year.   Several age and grade level appropriate verbal, visual, auditory, and kinesthetic strategies and techniques will be modeled to teach the very difficult and rigorous skill of extended/essay responses that will be very easy to remember and apply by your students.
