Reading and Writing standards:
What is the value in defining literacy standards for focus in each quarter?
DCA Assessment:
• Where should writing and reading reside within DCA rubrics and what weight
should they have?
• To what extent should target literacy skills (reading and writing) remain
unchanged from rubric to rubric?

Challenge: Writing to Understand:
"As long as the reason of man continues fallible, and he is at liberty to exercise it,
different opinions will be formed. As long as the connection subsists between his
reason and his self-love, his opinions and his passions will have a reciprocal
influence on each other; and the former will be objects to which the latter will
attach themselves. The diversity in the faculties of men, from which the rights of
property originate, is not less an insuperable obstacle to a uniformity of interests.
The protection of these faculties is the first object of government. From the
protection of different and unequal faculties of acquiring property, the
possession of different degrees and kinds of property immediately results; and
from the influence of these on the sentiments and views of the respective
proprietors, ensues a division of the society into different interests and parties."
--James Madison’s The Federalist Papers
CCR W10—Desired Transfer
CCR 10. Write routinely over extended

for a range of tasks, purposes, and
audiences.

 Writing
 Expect students to compose arguments and opinions and
informative/explanatory pieces
 Focus on the use of reason and cite evidence to substantiate an
argument or claim
 Emphasize ability to conduct research – short projects and
sustained inquiry
 Require students to incorporate technology as they create,
refine, and collaborate on writing
 Include student writing samples that illustrate the criteria
required to meet the standards
 (See Appendix C for writing samples)
Breaking down the standards:
 Red=verb=Skill or Understanding
 Blue=Noun=Knowledge
 Green=qualifier=Criteria for performance
CCR 2. Write informative/explanatory texts to examine
and convey complex ideas and information clearly and
accurately through the effective selection, organization,
and analysis of content.
Example - Common Core - Writing
W.1-Write arguments to support claims in an
analysis of substantive topics or texts, using
valid reasoning and relevant and sufficient
evidence.
Underline the nouns, circle the verbs, and place parenthesis around modifiers.
