Florida educators gathered last week at a conference, “Leading Change, Shifting Practice”. Supported by Florida Association of District School Superintendents, the two day conference focused on creating a deeper understanding of the demands and intent of the standards and supported district teams to generate a plan for leading change back in their schools and communities. One session among many at the two-day conference was, "EQuIP ELA & Literacy Rubrics for Lessons and Units: Elementary & Secondary School". Participants worked collaboratively to better learn the ELA & Literacy Rubrics, use the rubrics and quality review process to evaluate materials, and plan to use the rubrics to support collaborative, evidence-based inquiry around the alignment of literacy lessons and units at their own school sites and districts. Materials for the session are linked below.
