Participants in these trainings should have a working knowledge of the Iowa Core English Arts Standards: history, development, format/structure, and meaning of the standards and their vocabulary. To support the implementation of the Iowa Core ELA standards, AEA reading consultants worked with teams of teachers to develop grade-level, year-long K-12 Scope and Sequence charts. In these scope and sequence charts, teachers find the ELA standards divided into teachable units.
Participants will examine resources provided for implementation: the K-12 Scope and Sequence and the Unit Planning Organizer for units 1-5 for grades 9-12, and unit 6 for grades 9-10. They will have some work time to develop standards-based lessons aligned to each unit.
Goals of the trainings:
1. Participants will examine the K-12 Scope and Sequence.
2. Participants will study the Unit Planning Organizer for their grade.
3. Participants will plan standards-based instruction based on the Unit Planning Organizer.
Each workshop will spend two days covering the following ELA Standards Units, grades 9-12:
Unit 1: 7/18/14 & 7/25/14
Unit 2: 9/22/14 & 9/23/14
Unit 3: 10/16/14 & 10/17/14
Unit 4: 2/19/15 & 2/20/15
Unit 5: 3/25/15 & 3/26/15
Unit 6: 4/9/15 & 4/10/15 (grades 9-10 only)
