Reading Standards
 Vertical articulation
 Look at the reading standards for your content area
 Highlight the differences between the grade levels
 Note strategies that you already use
 Compare the 9-10 grade band standards for each
group.
 What do you notice- similarities, differences?
Roles
 What are the roles of the different “crew members” in
your building?
Diamonds in the Sky
Purpose: To become familiar with expectations for our
students and to share effective reading strategies.
Science Example: Understand how and why carbon
molecules can take different forms.
Reading Standard: Summarize the main ideas of the
passage.
Diamonds in the Sky
 Read the passage
 What reading strategies would help your students
extract information from this passage?
 Finish template for Diamonds in the Sky
Diamonds in the Sky
 Complete the assessment
 What standards are being assessed?
 What reading strategies might help your students be
successful on an assessment?
 Smarter Balanced: www.smarterbalanced.org
Your connections
 Look at your own text.
 Fill out the template for your text: Consider
 What is your purpose?
 How will you scaffold for your students?
Writing
 Complete a vertical articulation of Standard #1.
 Note any strategies you use in your classroom already.
 Find where you meet some of these standards in your
curriculum.
Writing

Writing
 Read standards 4-10
 3-2-1: Cite evidence
 3 things that surprise you
 2 questions you have
 1 thing you already do
Nuclear Power
Purpose: Evaluate how reading
and writing strategies are used
in content courses.
 What do you know about
nuclear power?
 Rank the amount of energy we
get from each source.
 Rank as a group.
Nuclear Power
Ranks:
Biomass: 6
Coal: 1
Geothermal: 8
Hydropower: 4
Natural Gas: 2
Petroleum: 7
Propane: 10
Solar: 9
Uranium: 3
Wind: 5

From: Smarter Balanced
Assessment Consortium
Released Items:
www.smaterbalanced.org
Tasks:
 Identify pros and cons of nuclear
power.

 Ex: Oil drilling in ANWR
 Ex: Should the U.S. defend
democracy?
Argument and Evidence
 How would you have students gather resources?
 How would you have students evaluate resources?
 How would you ensure students provide sufficient
