When Reading Meets Writing: PA Core to Text Dependent Analysis - May 18th

The new PSSA ELA test represents a significant shift in what students should know and be able to do in the English Language Arts. The new test redefines the "language arts," particularly when it comes to Reading. Now they must analyze what they read and communicate that analysis in a brief but well-written essay. In other words, Reading meets Writing in this test in new and important ways.

This workshop takes participants inside the new PSSA ELA test to discover what counts as good writing in the text-dependent analysis section; how those criteria compare to the writing test rubric; and how the shifts in standards and resulting assessment can impact instruction in powerful, productive ways.
