In order to help build the capacity of educators to better recognize and use highly Common Core-aligned materials, the Implementation Specialists and Instructional Coaches in Washoe County School District are engaging in ongoing professional learning around the EQuIP Rubric for Lessons & Units: ELA/Literacy (Grades 3-5) and ELA (Grades 6-12). This week the second of six sessions was held during the IS Institute, during which participants reviewed a training lesson, independently applied the criteria in Dimension I: Alignment to the Depth of the CCSS, and calibrated their feedback. Later sessions in the winter and spring of 2015 will use the same training lesson to explore remaining rubric dimensions: II: Key Shifts in the CCSS, III: Instructional Supports, and IV: Assessment.
Materials for today's session include:
- PowerPoint for 11/7
- Training Lesson: Ain’t I a Woman (not to be distributed as an exemplar)
- EQuIP Discussion Guide
- EQuIP ELA 3-12 Rubric
- Electronic version of the EQuIP ELA 3-12 Rubric
